Fleetwood Closes Plants

Fleetwood has announced that it is closing the travel trailer plant in Oregon "for good" and laying off over 400 workers. The announcement comes on the heels of Monaco's bankruptcy filing just days ago.

Robert Thompson, owner of Thompson RV in Pendleton, said a Fleetwood sales manger met him this morning to give him the news. Thompson said his dealership still has Fleetwood inventory, and Fleetwood has a reserve fund to handle warranties for a year.

Sounds like if you've got a Fleetwood with defects, you better get it in for repair while there's still money allocated to warranty work.
