Syracuse, Ind.-based Redwood RV, a manufacturer of high-end residential fifth-wheels, announced the appointment of Dan Tauer to the position of product manager who will be instrumental in the resurrection of the Carriage brand this fall.

According to a press release, Tauer brings over 28 years of experience in the RV industry to Redwood. Prior to joining Redwood, he held the position of vice president of sales at DRV Luxury Suites, helping establish the company as a residential RV manufacturer.

“Redwood is excited to have Dan join our team,” said Tom Montague, general manager for the Thor Industries Inc. subsidiary and sister company of CrossRoads RV. “As we continue to expand our customer and dealer base, and tackle new market segments, the successful recruitment of seasoned professionals is critical in providing superior products and services not only to our dealers but ultimately our customers.

“Dan’s knowledge and commitment to customer service makes him a valuable resource to Redwood. He understands exactly what customers at this price point are looking for in a high-end fifth-wheel. Dan’s expertise and guidance will also be instrumental in launching the all-new Carriage brands later this fall.”

Tauer stated, “I’m excited about this opportunity to join the Redwood RV team and to bring my luxury fifth-wheel knowledge to the Redwood product. As a competitor I had watched the Redwood brand take over the market share and I’m excited to now be a part of it and have the unlimited resources that a Thor company can offer. It’s also very exciting to be here to assist the team in the launch of the Carriage brand.”
