Apparently Thor (who owns Airstream) was going to buy them, but found some accounting irregularities during their due diligence. It appears Hymer (who currently owns Roadtrek) was inflating the number of vehicles sold.
I first heard this story after seeing this story, posted by a musician who bought a Roadtrek to use during a tour, but multiple serious problems sidelined his use of it, and the tour.
Wow...I never expected Roadtrek to close! They’ve been around quite a while.

Thanks for the update!
It appears the entire "new" RV industry is going through a big Reset. (As well as some "well known" dealers.)Thank goodness for our blog, other blogs, and YouTubers for bringing more of the problems and abuses out in the open.
The value of well-made "old stuff" just went up again.
