Forest River Inc. logo Forest River Inc. spokesmen confirmed this morning (Jan. 31) that the Elkhart, Ind.-based Berkshire Hathaway Inc.  subsidiary has acquired Dynamax Corp., a 14-year-old motorhome manufacturer specializing in high-end Super C-style  motorhomes and upscale fifth-wheel travel trailers located on the north side of Elkhart.logo

“Forest River has purchased Dynamax,” a spokesman for Forest River, who preferred anonymity, told “Details to follow.”

Dynamax President Dewayne Creighton was unavailable for comment.

“We’re pumped up about it,” said the Forest River source. “We think there’s a lot of sectors inside that Super C category, everything from the RVer to getting a lot bigger and heavier into the command centers – the units that law enforcement, SWAT teams and the governmental units and insurance companies utilize during big storms and disasters.

“They’ve (Dynamax) already built some of those, and we’ve got some staff people who know this market, so we think we can do a lot of business in the command center specialty vehicles. We’re excited about that.”

    You guys started out building a solid RV . The Berksire 390RB at a great price. Then you skimp on the cabinet doors, using wrap instead of real wood cabinet doors. You just lost a sale. If you people know anything you should know people who are serious and looking to go fill time would not like that knowlege one bit.

    We were really thinking the Berkshire 390 RB as our retirement home. I can’t belive how dumb you are by doing so many right things and then pulling that stunt. get your head out.

    A very disappointed almost buyer.
