Company History

In 1996, Forest River was founded by Peter Liegel, who had prior experience in the industry working for Cobra Industries. Once Cobra dissolved earlier that decade, Liegel bought some of their assets and began to work toward his own venture in Elkhart, IN. it wasn’t long before Elkhart transformed into an RV manufacturing hub. From there, Forest River continuously expanded through the acquisition of other RV brands. As the years went on, Forest River acquired more and more specialty vehicle companies like bus manufacturers, cargo trailers, and commercial trucks.

Eventually, Forest River itself was acquired by the legendary Berkshire Hathaway in 2005. As a result, Forest River gained access to a plethora of resources and finances of a much larger company. Nevertheless, Forest River never lost sight of the initial reason for its founding: the customers. Up to this very day, investing in a Forest River product means you’ll enjoy top-of-the-line RVs and, of course, outstanding customer service.
