Why Elkhart?

Since 85% of Recreational Vehicles are manufactured in Elkhart County in northern Indiana, it’s no wonder Elkhart is deemed the RV Capital of the World

I ran some numbers. Out of 10 states with RV manufacturing facilities in the U.S., Indiana reigns as top dog in RV production with 45 factories.

Of those, Elkhart takes center stage as the #1 location with 13 RV manufacturing plants followed by Middlebury (5), Shipshewana (5), Nappanee (3), Goshen (3), Decatur (3), Bristol (2) and Howe (2). (numbers subject to change)

So, it comes as no surprise that Elkhart also reigns as an industry leader in RV component manufacturers to support those RV builders.

Because of all of this, it’s all in good measure why Elkhart is one of the best meeting places for RV owner groups. Included in their rallies, it’s a given that attendees get to go on their own RV manufacturer factory tour.

But, here’s the thing. You don’t have to attend an RV rally to take an RV factory tour! In fact, you don’t even have to own a camper or motorhome to be able to see how RVs are constructed!

Everyone is invited to go behind the scenes to see how all different types of RVs of every shape and size are built from the ground up! 

Each RV manufacturer tour guide will take you through each stage of the manufacturing process, explaining how all the pieces come together to create YOUR prospective RV!

So, let’s check out our comprehensive list of RV manufacturer factory tours in the Elkhart area. Then, make your reservation to see how RVs are brought to life ready for adventure!

RV Factory Tour Requirements

    • All RV manufacturers require wearing of closed-toe shoes in their facilities and plants.
    • RV factory tour attendees must wear safety glasses and hard hats (provided).
    • A valid ID may be required prior to your tour. No pets are allowed.
    • Photographs and videos inside the factory are prohibited unless otherwise stated by each RV factory tour guide.
    • If you have children, you must contact the RV manufacturer listed below for age requirements or stipulations. Minors attending must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
    • Should you require handicap assistance, you will also need to contact the RV manufacturer tour receptionist prior to scheduling and arrival.
    • Pets are typically not permitted in most RV manufacturing facilities or interfere with plant operations. Exceptions made to Service Dogs only. No exceptions for Emotional Support Animals.
    • Factory tours are typically not private tours. Other attendees may a part of your RV factory tour.

When planning a trip to Elkhart, Indiana and you want to tour one or more of the RV manufacturing plants, it’s up to you to make sure they are open to factory tours.

Also, I highly recommend checking in with each RV manufacturer upon arrival to Elkhart before showing up for your scheduled RV factory tour.

RV Factory Tour Health & Safety Protocol

To ensure that visitors and employees are safe, safety and health guidelines that must be followed and will be enforced:

      • Complete a RV manufacturer factory tour release prior to the start of each tour.
      • Tours will be limited to individuals within the same household or those within the same party.
      • You must not have any COVID-19 related symptoms during the tour or for 14 days prior to the date of the tour.
      • You must not have had a COVID-19 diagnosis within 30 days prior to the tour.
      • You may not join the tour if you’ve had a known exposure to anyone diagnosed with COVID-19 within 30 days of the tour date.

    1. Hi Darren, most RV manufacturers build their own floorpans; more like mass-produce. There are a few select RV manufacturers who do build according to owner specifications. However, they are very pricy and build time is incredibly long. If you’re looking at building your own fifth wheel, check out New Horizons.
