Thread: Vantare/Featherlite Scuttlebutt

    Default Vantare/Featherlite Scuttlebutt

    Appears that about 60 production people were let go and that Camping World has acquired the service facilities of the company.

    Unverified at this point, but thought y'all ought to know for what it is worth.

    Vantare/Featherlite did let go a number of people around 3 months ago. I was just at their service center in Sanford, and Camping World HAS NOT taken over.

    I left there 3 days ago, and the same people were still working under the same management. I do not know anything about their other facilities.

    Like I said, it was just scuttlebutt.

    Thanks.

    Jeff this is not Scuttlebutt. It is a fact according to some legal friends of mine. Soon you will be able to buy sewer hoses and RV supplies right there in Sanford Florida at the Featherlite site, soon to be Camping World. Camping World is in an acquisition mode across the country and it appears Featherlite is letting go of an asset in return for some cash that they really need. I know one poster said he was just their for service but some of the service guys are being relieved of their duties as we speak. All of this from sources that would know.

    Sorry everyone if I mislead you in an earlier post. When I was there I asked the service people if there were going to be any changes. I was told no, and none appeared to be happening last week. However, the post from Five-O sounds like he is in the know.

    Does this mean that Camping World is going to now do service for Featherlite? That is a scary proposition given my luck with them in the past on a stick and staple motorhome.

    "We are excited to have this new relationship with FreedomRoads/Camping World and to be able to take Featherlite and the bus conversion industry to the next level of customer service,"

    You have got to love how the press releases spin things. I bet all you Liberty owners are worried that Featherlite is going to put Liberty out of business now that they have Camping World handling their service.
