Industry veterans Denny Bailey and Bill DeVoss have purchased all of the assets of R-Vision Inc., a Warsaw, Ind., manufacturer of towable and motorized RVs.
The two executives purchased the 9-year-old company, which is known in the industry as an innovator in product development, particularly in the towable sector, from founder Bill Warrick. Warrick has been involved in the startup of a number of RV brand names during his 35-year career, including Prairie Schooner, Mallard and Monaco in addition to Goshen Coach and McCoy-Miller commercial vehicles.
The sale of R-Vision, which operates in a 420,000-square-foot facility located on 58 acres just south of the Northern Indiana community of Warsaw, was announced to R-Vision’s 500 employees on Tuesday (Dec. 7).
“Our plan is to grow it; that’s why we purchased it – continuous growth,” said Bailey, 58, who formerly worked for Dutchmen Mfg. Inc. and Holiday Rambler Corp. before joining R-Vision eight years ago. “We already had ownership in it and just decided to buy the rest when it became available. Having said that, we intend to take a very aggressive approach in both towable and motorized product in the future.”
DeVoss, 58, is a former Dutchmen, Rockwood and Coachmen executive.
In the towable category, R-Vision manufactures Trail Bay and Trail Vision conventional trailers; Trail-Lite and Trail Cruiser lightweights; Bantam hybrids and SURVs under the R-Wagon, Trail Hauler, Max-Lite and Bay Hauler brand names. On the motorized side, R-Vision produces Trail-Lite and Trail-Aire gas Class A’s as well as Trail-Lite B-Plus Class C’s.
