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.
“Forest River has purchased Dynamax,” a spokesman for Forest River, who preferred anonymity, told RVBUSINESS.com. “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.”
