A PROUD HISTORY OF QUALITY AND VALUE... A BRAND THAT YOU CAN TRUST!
Coachmen RV products have been on US 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 the 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. Coachmen Camping Trailers are manufactured in their Centerville, Michigan, manufacturing facilities.

By involving a third-party, Coachmen has taken the steps to ensure to its customers that they are getting a quality RV that conforms to consensus standards for green construction.
Knowing that all Coachmen RVs have earned green certification through an accredited, certified third party agency provides confidence in our products.
All Coachmen facilities incorporate extensive recycling of many materials including cardboard, plastic, aluminum, steel, copper wire and even styrofoam! The materials within Coachmen RVs are low-emitting and all units go through an in-depth quality evaluation off-site. Test water is recycled at all Coachmen plants as well as at their corporate testing facility.
An RV does not need to have fancy solar panels to be green. Green Certification of an RV takes a more holistic approach, examining multiple areas of the RV. Green is the result of a process using effective production techniques in combination with resource efficient and healthy materials to create products that satisfy consumer needs with minimal environmental impact.
