That's a darn shame about Marion IN and the Hoefers but does point up the current reality of low demand in the luxury market.

This makes me sad

Seybold said the Hoefer family tried their best to make the company succeed.



“They took everything they could to make it work and they lost everything they own,” he said.

There are so many good ideas out there....

I'll second those sentiments Donna. Its always a shame when an entrepreneur pours their heart, soul and cash into a business and it just doesn't succeed. The RV industry still isn't out of the doldrums.

Upper end market is a tough sell in most RV's including eggs.

I think that Earthbound started in the 40-50K range, had difficulties and tried to re-position into the $90K-$100K and even higher range and had even more difficulties. Sadly, I've never seen one outside the internet or magazine pages - but they sure seem to have tried to produce a new and unique product albeit at a mind-numbing price.
