Just as Livin’ Lite Recreational Vehicles LLC moves into an 18,000-square-foot addition to its factory in Wakarusa, Ind., the small northern Indiana RV manufacturer has been identified as one of the 500 fastest growing companies in the U.S. in the September issue of Inc. magazine.image

Livin’ Lite builds modern-looking lightweight, all-aluminum folding camping trailers, travel trailers, truck campers and utility trailers.

”I think it’s pretty cool for a little company like us in Wakarusa, Ind., to be among the fastest growing companies in the U.S.,” said Livin’ Lite President Scott Tuttle. ”Next year, our growth will be even more.”

Inc. reported that Livin’ Lite’s revenue growth between 2006 and 2009 was 611% — from $418,000 to $3 million — ranking the company 491st in the magazine’s annual survey. Among manufacturers of consumer products and services, Inc. ranked Livin’ Lite the 30th fastest growing company.

Livin’ Lite’s private-label Jeep folding camping trailer, which became available Aug. 1 through Chrysler LLC’s Mopar parts subsidiary, also was featured on the cover in the October issue of Four Wheel magazine for a story on off-road trailers.

The Jeep popup camper, along with Livin’ Lite’s Quicksilver popup, will be built in the new plant expansion where Livin’ Lite will begin production next week.

With the addition of the new square footage, Livin’ Lite will have 53,000 square feet under roof, and plans to increase the number of its employees by 50 over the next year for a total of more than 80.

I am partial to the Travel Lite Truck Camper. We recently purchased a 770 Super Lite for our short bed 1/2 ton chevy pick up truck but the great thing about our Travel Lite Truck Camper is that if my son wants to take his family camping he can , he owns a long bed chevy but our new Travel Lite Truck Camper will fit on his truck too. Our 770 Super Lite will fit any long bed OR short bed pick up truck. Love it!!!! Thank you Travel Lite for building the best built truck camper that we’ve seen in a long time. The quality is out of this world. Looking forward to our tour of your plant in New Paris, IN in August. Keep up the good work!!!
