Editor’s Note: This letter went out on Tuesday to customers of Fleetwood RV Inc.
Dear Fleetwood Friend:
I am writing to you today to announce the launch of Fleetwood RV, Inc. As you may already be aware, on July 17, 2009, American Industrial Partners Capital Fund IV LP (“AIP”) acquired certain motorized recreational vehicle business assets from Fleetwood Enterprises, Inc. On July 20, 2009, in partnership with AIP we launched a new company, Fleetwood RV, Inc., which is jointly run by CEO, Chuck Wilkinson and me. Chuck has over 40 years of RV industry experience, 25 years with Fleetwood, holding several senior management positions, and I have held senior management positions at some of the top manufacturers in the RV industry, including Fleetwood Enterprises, since 1997. Today, Fleetwood RV, Inc. is headquartered in Decatur, Ind., and is a debt-free company that continues to produce the same best-selling Fleetwood motorhome brands you’ve come to know and love over the years. In fact, Fleetwood is the top-selling Class A motorhome manufacturer in the industry, and has been for 21 of the past 22 years. Fleetwood RV, Inc. is committed to preserving Fleetwood’s 60-year legacy of building high-quality, high-value recreational vehicles and to nurturing our relationship with our dealers and customers. Fleetwood RV, Inc. backs all of its new motorhomes with an industry-leading warranty policy (limited one-year/15,000-mile coach warranty and three-year/45,000-mile structural warranty, whichever occurs first, and is fully transferable for the first 12 months). For service or warranty questions about your existing Fleetwood motorhome product, please contact Owner Relations via phone at (800) 322-8216. For service or warranty questions about your existing American Coach product, please contact American Coach Owner Relations at (800) 435-7345. For the latest information about all of our motorhome products or to locate a Fleetwood RV dealer in your area, please visit our website at www.fleetwoodrv.com <http://fleetwoodrv.us1.list-manage.com/track/click?u=685db917fddc6010dd58121ac&id=367987c44c&e=641bcbc73f> . There has never been a better time to buy a new Fleetwood RV motorhome and we look forward to the opportunity to welcome you to the new Fleetwood RV, Inc.
