Four of the cases sprang out of a 2008 lawsuit started by Heartland claiming that Forest River had infringed on a patent, something Forest River denies of course. Then the claims and counterclaims started and the fight hasn't stopped since.
It got worse when one of the two went to a private trade show that the other one hosted, and started passing out their promotional literature - a bit like Ford going to a GM dealer's conference and passing out packages of sales literature to GM dealers under their hotel door. Not exactly illegal maybe, but certainly not very tactful.
Meanwhile, the lawyers fight on. So, if you see a price increase in the Heartland or Forest River product line, it could be due to the ever-mounting legal costs of their bitter feud.
