Usually Arrives at Kepler's in 3-14 Days


Time spent with the family in a Coachmen Leprechaun or a Holiday Rambler is unforgettable. Indiana retains a unique place in the RV industry going back to the 1930s, when pioneering individuals like Milo Miller, Harold Platt and Wilbur Schult created the original RV businesses in the Elkhart-South Bend area, making campers for sale. By the end of World War II, the national media was identifying Elkhart as the "Trailer Capital of the World." That status has been reinforced ever since, and the industry is still thriving in Indiana with the successes of Thor Industries and Forest River. Join author and RV expert Al Hesselbart as he chronicles how the Hoosier State became the RV Capital of the World.
