Screen-Shot-2014-11-17-at-8.22.59-AMStartup Omega RV LLC announced the launch of its RV manufacturing venture at the former KIT production plant in Caldwell, Idaho.

According to a press release, the newly formed company has purchased the intellectual properties along with all equipment and materials. Production and office buildings on the property are under lease with an option to buy.

The company’s joint membership includes Acting General Manager Don Day and Scott Thorpe, vice president of sale and marketing. Omega RV said it has reassembled a successful key management team, as well as skilled staff and production employees from KIT, Extreme RV and Extreme Warrior. Terry LaMasters, former KIT and Extreme RV purchasing manager, and Engineering Manager Paul Forstie will resume these positions for Omega RV.

“Omega RV intends to offer the Western United States and Canadian dealerships an innovative, quality-built product.  Our manufacturing facilities located in Idaho will reduce freight costs and provide easier access to our sales staff and servicing center for faster product support and repair,” said Day. “Scott and I have waited for the right financial partner.  Now we have the funding and support to back this exciting new venture, along with a proven and talented management team and workforce.”

The company will focus on travel trailers, fifth-wheels and toy haulers reviving the popular Road Ranger, Companion, Sportsmaster, Monterey, Megalite and Extreme brands. A new toy hauler product line will be introduced next month.  

“We look forward to what we believe will be an exciting time for the new company. We benefit from a strong heritage, skilled workforce, and a legacy of quality and innovative products,” said Thorpe. 

More information and the launch of the company’s interactive website will be forthcoming.
