Prime Time Manufacturing Logo

In 2009, a few RV industry veterans with over 100 years of combined manufacturing experience decided to form a new company—a company that would allow us to better connect with our dealers and customers. We wanted to build an RV that EXCEEDED our customers’ expectations.


We simply wanted to do it better.


Eleven years later, Prime Time Manufacturing is proudly building a full line of towable RV products to meet the needs of experienced, casual, and first time RV customers alike. In that time, our unwavering commitment to quality and a customer-first service philosophy has easily made Prime Time Manufacturing North America’s FAVORITE RV Company.


Because quality matters, we chose to locate our company in the heart of northern Indiana’s Amish community, where craftsmanship, work ethic, and commitment to integrity are still a way of life. In that tradition, we recently renewed our commitment to quality with an even more rigorous quality system that we call the Customer Assurance Inspection (CAI).


Simply put, before an RV is cleared to leave our site, it must first pass a 125-point checklist. Our skilled technicians review every model from top to bottom, both inside and out. We check and double-check the entire unit, from water tanks to the electrical system, roof to underbelly, kitchen appliances and countertops—and everything in-between.


In recognition of our commitment to quality, Prime Time Manufacturing has been recognized with several prestigious industry awards, such as The National RV Dealers Association (RVDA) DSI Quality Circle Award and several “Best of Show” awards from RV publications. Simply stated, “No one does quality better!”


Also, as a division of Forest River, Inc., we are positioned to grow well into the future. Not only is Forest River one of North America’s largest manufacturers of recreational vehicles, but it is also a Berkshire Hathaway company. This provides several benefits to our customers—such as the unmatched purchasing power that brings the highest value to every unit we build. Our financial strength is your assurance that we will be here to serve you for years to come.


Our dealer network stretches across the US and Canada, so our products are most likely available at a dealership near you. However, if your travels take you through Wakarusa or you simply want a closer look at how we build our RV’s, please visit us for a factory tour. We look forward to seeing you!
