List of Defunct RV manufacturers

According to this mornings edition of RVtravel.com, here is the most recent list of RV manufacturers who have filed bankruptcy or who have filed Chapter 11. It's a sad state of affairs for the RV industry but to be expected in an economy such as we have now where only the strong will survive.

RV manufacturers out of business
Alfa Leisure
Ameri-Camp
Bigfoot
Chinook/Trail Wagons
Dolphin
Extreme RV
Fleetwood trailer division (closed for good)
King of the Road
National RV
NuWa Industries
Pilgrim International
Sun Valley Inc.
Sunline Coach
Teton Homes
TravelSupreme
Weekend Warrior
Western RV, Inc

Companies that have declared Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection
Country Coach (Factory closed)
Fleetwood (Still building motorhomes and manufactured homes)
Monaco (Factory closed)
Rexhall (Bankruptcy, still operating)

There is talk, in this same news letter that Affinity, the parent company of The Good Sam Club, Trailer Life, Camping World and a bunch of other RV related things is not expected to last out the year. Fleetwood is the most recent addition to this list but I don't think it will be the last. Rough times are still ahead for the RV industry.

Nu Wa announced last week that they will be back in production in June. They make Hitchhiker rvs. That is good news.
