Livin’ Lite Recreational Vehicles LLC today (Aug. 23) announced a partnership with Foxworthy Outdoors, a new venture from celebrity and avid outdoorsman Jeff Foxworthy including products from hunting items to camping gear. The Foxworthy Outdoors brand will provide quality, value oriented products encouraging consumers to enjoy the great outdoors.
The news coincides with Wakarusa, Ind.-based Livin’ Lite’s earning the No. 278 position on Inc. magazine’s list of the 500 fastest-growing entrepreneurial businesses. Livin’ Lite was founded in 2002 and builds a full-line of lightweight all-aluminum campers and trailers. Inc. has published the list every year since 1981.
Foxworthy is one of the most respected and successful comedians in the country. He is the largest selling comedy-recording artist in history, a multiple Grammy Award nominee and bestselling author of more than twenty-six books. He was the host of the hit show Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader and most recently was the voice of Handy Smurf in The Smurfs.
Livin Lite, owned by Scott Tuttle, an innovator in the all-aluminum camper market, is excited about the partnership with Foxworthy Outdoors.
“I was thrilled when Jeff’s people reached out to us about partnering with them to build campers that would bear his name and branding,” said Tuttle. “Everyone knows that Jeff Foxworthy is a hard-core outdoorsman, and the fact that he chose our Elkhart County company to work with to build his campers says a lot for the uniqueness and quality of our products.”
Foxworthy Outdoors CEO Larry Burns noted, “We are excited to be launching the Foxworthy Outdoors brand and happy to call Livin’ Lite our partner. Our focus has and will continue to be in developing relationships that reflect well on the Foxworthy Outdoors brand. Foxworthy Outdoors invites you to take it outdoors and live it up!”
