12 Park Model Builders to Display in Louisville
Twelve members of the Recreational Park Trailer Industry Association (RPTIA) will be displaying new products at the National RV Trade Show Dec. 2-4 in Louisville, Ky.
The manufacturing firms divvied up some 18,900 square feet in the Broadbent Arena at the Kentucky Exposition Center that became available in early October.
“We’re back, and that’s a good thing,” Bill Garpow, RPTIA executive director, told Woodall’s Campground Management.
In March, citing a traditional waiting list for Recreation Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA) members to display their products in Louisville, the RVIA board decided not to invite park model manufacturers to Louisville.
With the industry downturn, however, the Louisville Show didn’t sell out for the first time in many years and in September the RVIA board reversed its position.
The 12 firms are: Breckenridge Division of Thor Industries Inc., Nappanee, Ind.; Cavco Industries Inc., Phoenix, Ariz.; Chariot Eagle Inc., Ocala, Fla.; CrossRoads RV, Topeka, Ind.; DNA Enterprises Inc.-Canterbury, Goshen, Ind.; Dutch Park Homes Inc., Goshen; Fairmont Homes Inc., Nappanee; Heritage Park Models Inc., Elkhart, Ind.; Kropf Industries Inc., Goshen; Skyline Corp., Elkhart; Trophy Homes Inc., Elkhart; and Woodland Park Inc., Middlebury, Ind.
