Tveten’s RV Mart, one of the oldest RV dealerships in the Pacific Northwest, has gone out of business.
The Tacoma, Wash., area dealership, and Tveten RV South, a sister dealership in Mesa, Ariz., filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in April. The bankruptcy was subsequently converted to liquidation under Chapter 7 of the Bankruptcy Code, according to Arizona court records.
Tveten carried brands from several RV manufacturers including Allegro, Beaver, Airstream, Four Winds, Komfort, Teton and Travel Supreme.
Tveten’s RV was founded in Tacoma in the late 1950s by Mel Tveten, according to the company’s Web site. The dealership was acquired by Jim and Betty Fisher in 1990 and they subsequently moved the business from Tacoma to Fife, a Tacoma suburb.
The Mesa location was opened in 1992.
The Fishers could not be reached for comment on the bankruptcy.
