Tiffin Motorhomes’ eight-year towable manufacturing project will come to an end in March, the RV manufacturer announced.
Tiffin will restructure to focus on the products consumers and dealers are requesting, the company said. They will discontinue Vanleigh RV operations.
The manufacturer’s towable division in Burnsville, Mississippi, will cease production, effective in March. The Tiffin Group said it will provide resources to individuals impacted by the plant closure to assist them in their search for future employment, in addition to assistance from the Mississippi Department of Employment Security rapid response teams.
“This decision is especially personal to me since I founded VLRV in 2014,” said Leigh Tiffin, Tiffin Group president, “but we are dedicated to our vision of diversifying our motorized product offering to become the RV industry’s premier full-line motorized OEM.”
The reorganization will enable Tiffin to diversify its Type B and Type C motorhome products, the company said. The reorganization was undertaken based on consumer data, dealer input and current market conditions which point to promising opportunities in motorized RV growth categories, Tiffin said.
“We are confident the tough choices we are making are necessary to successfully support our customers, team members, business partners and local communities for many years to come,” Leigh Tiffin said.
Vanleigh’s service operations integrated with Tiffin’s last year. The company said the centralized service will ensure Tiffin’s provides customer support and faithfully honors Vanleigh RV warranty needs.
