Heritage One RV, a maker of mid-range travel trailers and toy haulers, has apparently shuttered its operations, according to two dealer representatives who spoke with RV PRO.
Attempts to contact Nappanee, Ind.-based Heritage One directly were unsuccessful, as its phone number has been disconnected. The company Website also has been taken down.
However, Steve Bordelon, owner of Steve’s RV Center, said he learned just recently the manufacturer is no longer in business. The 27-year-old dealership located in Meraux, La., had carried the Heritage One line since July 2009.
“They didn’t give me the courtesy to call and let me know what is going on. So it’s a little frustrating,” he said, adding he currently has about five Due West units valued at about $75,000 on his sales lot.
Pat Wilkins, a salesperson at Country Roads RV Center in Lexington, N.C., also told RV PRO that the RV manufacturer had closed its doors, although the reason was not clear. Country Roads RV was a Heritage One dealer, but currently only has one unit on its lot, she said.
Heritage One was featured in an article in the May issue of RV PRO highlighting new RV manufacturers. The company was founded in September 2008 by Tony Newman, Steve Smith and Paul Miller, son of Marvin Miller, who founded Newmar in 1967.
Heritage One manufactured Due West travel trailers in eight floorplans ranging from 25 to 35 feet. The company’s travel trailers retailed from $18,000 to $25,000. The company also produced Ground Control toy haulers in 18-foot and 22-foot versions.
