A large crowd is expected for Thor Industries Inc.’s auction Tuesday (March 25) of remaining towable inventory, work-in-progress units and assorted componentry at a former Monaco RV towable manufacturing plant in Elkhart, Ind.

Hahn Auctioneers Inc., which is overseeing the liquidation, told RVBUSINESS.com they expect as many as 500 people. The auction is scheduled to begin at 8 a.m. while a preview of inventory is running today from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Thor has designs to expand production of its Thor Motor Coach Inc. division at the 220,000-square-foot plant on the south side of Elkhart. Thor acquired the facility in February from Allied Specialty Vehicles Inc., which took ownership when it purchased the RV assets of Navistar Inc.

According to a sales flier, the auction will include “enough inventory to run production for weeks,” including three completed RVs, several partially finished vehicles and a lengthy list of supplies.

Phil Hahn told The Elkhart Truth that it’s not unusual for his company to auction off the remnants of a shuttered RV plant, but he doesn’t usually see this much needing liquidation.
