Our History

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 totaled 12 travel trailers, a single truck camper and 80 truck caps. Since then, over three quarters of a million Coachmen recreational vehicles have been produced and sold.

In December of 2008, Coachmen RV became a proud brand of Forest River, Inc., a Berkshire Hathaway company.

Today - Coachmen RV, a division of Forest River, Inc., is headquartered in Middlebury, Indiana, with our primary manufacturing facilities occupying over 220 acres with more than 23 acres under roof serving as dedicated manufacturing facilities for Coachmen branded Class A Motorhomes, Class C Motorhomes, Fifth Wheels and Travel Trailers.
