Coachmen RV products have been on U.S. roads and highways since 1964. The first Coachmen RV products were manufactured in a 5,000-square-foot plant in downtown Middlebury, Indiana, by Coachmen Industries, a company founded by three brothers: Tom, Keith and Claude Corson.
Coachmen's first year of production included 12 travel trailers, a single truck camper and 80 truck caps. Since that time, over 600,000 Coachmen recreational vehicles have been produced.
In 1969, Coachmen Industries became a public company, and in 1972 Coachmen was first listed on the American Stock Exchange. In January of 1978, the stock was approved for trading on the New York Stock Exchange. In 1984, Coachmen joined the ranks of the prestigious Fortune 500. And in December of 2008, Coachmen RV became a proud brand of Forest River Inc., a Berkshire Hathaway Company.
Coachmen RV, a Division of Forest River Inc., is headquartered in Middlebury, Indiana, with primary manufacturing facilities on nearly 120 acres with approximately 11 acres under roof serving as dedicated manufacturing facilities for Coachmen-branded Class A motorhomes, Class C motorhomes, fifth wheels and travel trailers.
