A producer of motor homes since 1964, Coachmen has a long tradition of high quality, low price recreational vehicles, a legacy that they have proudly carried into the 21st century. Coachmen went public in 1969, and has been listed on the New York Stock Exchange since 1972, and has even been present in the Fortune 500 as early as 1984, though no longer present on that list. Headquartered in Middlebury, Indiana, Coachmen has moved far beyond their first year’s production of little more than a dozen trailers, producing over 600,000 recreational vehicles over their near half-century of operations.
Though now a subsidiary of Forest River Incorporated, Coachmen proudly continues to uphold the legacy of 45 years in the recreational vehicle industry. Though most of Coachmen’s current lineup consists of trailers of various categories, they also continue to produce a number of noteworthy Class C recreational vehicles. Currently, their lineup ranges from the Freelander, an economy model, to the Concord, Leprechaun, and Prism, all upscale models that still maintain a decent price point.
Coachmen also produces a number of fine Class A vehicles, though due to their size these particular motor homes are outside of this site’s particular purview. With the retirement of the Avant-Garde lines of recreational vehicles, current models include the Mirada and the Sportscoach.
