History Behind Forest River
FOREST RIVER HISTORY
In 1996, Forest River founder Peter Liegl had a vision. He foresaw an RV company dedicated to helping people experience the joy of the outdoors by building better recreational vehicles. After purchasing certain assets of Cobra Industries, the Company started manufacturing pop-up tent campers, travel trailers, fifth wheels and park models. Continually growing, Forest River now operates multiple manufacturing facilities throughout the Midwest and West coast producing motorized Class A, B and Cs, travel trailers, fifth wheels, toy haulers, pop-up tent campers, park model trailers, destination trailers, cargo trailers, commercial vehicles, buses, pontoons, restroom trailers and mobile offices.
Their large production capacity enables them to fill their customers' orders promptly without cutting corners or rushing through production procedures. This ensures that each Forest River product is conscientiously built and undergoes thorough, detailed inspection before it's shipped to the customer. This guarantees that every family who desires quality recreation will find a Forest River product that serves their needs, interests, budget, and lifestyle.
Forest River, Inc., is an incubator where innovative ideas thrive and flourish as we strive to adapt to changing market and consumer demands. At Forest River, there are innovators, entrepreneurs, creators, designers and visionaries working together. Their commitment goes beyond the manufacturing process as they invest in creating those exceptional moments of laughter and joy.
