Altman’s Winnebago is Shutting Down for Good

Posted By RVBusiness On May 9, 2011 @ 2:16 pm In Breaking News | 4 Comments

Joe Altman, president of Altmans Winnebago, announced today (May 9) that the Altman family has made the difficult decision to wind down their dealership operations in Carson, Calif. The process began on May 6.

“Our family has experienced 40 years of great and challenging times,” Altman noted in a news release, “but current market conditions suggest it’s time to end this chapter of our business.

“Over the next month or so, Altmans will be liquidating the remaining inventory of motorhomes and towables that will give buyers and other dealerships the opportunity to purchase RV’s at substantial savings.

“We are truly going to miss the many relationships developed over the last 40 years, but the time has come to say goodbye to the industry we love,” he concluded.

The dealership first opened its doors for business in 1971 in Baldwin Park, Calif.

This is a sad day when a long time quality RV dealer closes their doors. Our industry needs more committed full service dealers not less. We all have a responsibility to ensure this industry supports those who choose to use our products to a level where they are RV industry ambassadors. I wish the Altman family the very best in the future. James

I’m Sorry to see Altman’s close their doors, I worked for them many years ago and they were a great company to work for. I wish them all the best.

I will never forget the way Dave and the Altmans organization changed the RV industry making it better for all of us who have made the RV industry a career.
Best wishes to all the staff and family at Altmans.

As a long time friend of the Altmans I had a huge regard for their business. I was formerly the principal of what was then the largest RV dealership in Britain and Europe, Wilsons Motor Caravan Centre that commened business in Brixton, London in 1958. The global RV industry is much the poorer with the closing of Altmans. My sincere best wishes to all the staff and the Altman family. Tony Wilson
