Reduction in Fleetwood's work force

Allied Recreation Group is blaming “seasonality and market conditions” for eliminating more than 50 hourly full-time workers at its Decatur plant – even though first-quarter sales in the RV industry rose 8 percent. A spokesman for the company said Monday the job cuts are manufacturing positions that paid at least $14 an hour. Allied Recreation Group makes the Fleetwood RV brand and is a subsidiary of Allied Specialty Vehicles of Orlando, Florida. The company lists its annual revenue at $1.7 billion. It has 23 brands under its umbrella and 5,600 employees nationwide, including Michigan, North Carolina, Florida, Texas and Kansas. Allied Recreation employs 1,100 workers in Decatur. Decatur Mayor John Schultz said he understands the reasons for the job reductions, but that doesn’t make it any easier to digest. “Any layoffs are not good,” Schultz said. “I do know that companies have to make adjustments based on seasonal factors and their production schedule.” Shares of RV manufacturers are entering a period characterized by seasonal weakness, even as sales are rising. If the decadelong market pattern holds this year, it could present an opportunity for bullish investors, industry watchers say. May was the busiest month for wholesale shipments in each of the past four years, according to data from the Recreation Vehicle Industry Association in Reston, Virginia. Wholesale shipments of new towable campers and motorized RVs rose 7.9 percent in the first quarter compared with a year earlier, according to figures from the RV association. That puts the industry on track to achieve total shipments of 387,000 this year, about on par with the pre-recession peak reached in 2006, according to Mac Bryan, a vice president at the trade group.

RE: Why I will never use Camping World for service ever again.

One of the worst CW in the nation, and now they have bought Dandy RV in Anniston, Al....a premiere dealer which also had some bad complaints from time to time..The people they have hired are really entry level technicians at best. One has to wonder if they work on commission as they sure make a lot of bad calls $$$$$

RE: Leaving house unattended

Always turn the water off at the meter, once had a friend that left his on for a month and came home to a house "under water"....their ice maker line broke and there was 4 - 5 inches of water through out the house....Gas was never a problem and as the pilots would all have to be re-lite we always left it on

RE: Seeping water...but from where? How?

Time to take it to a dealer that can perform a pressure test to find out exactly where this water is coming from before you have a serious problem with water.....Best money I ever invested ($100.00).

RE: Rincon Country West RV Resort security problem

Had the same problem at Tip of Texas RV resort a few years back...It was not kids but some folks in a MH that had loaded the rig up with 20 -25 bikes and was headed home with them...The guards at the entrance gate suspected these were the ones that were stealing the bikes and stopped them at the gate and did a search...surprise surprise they were arrested and most got their bikes back.

RE: From Sticks and Bricks to Full Time RV - order of process?

I would never turn over my house on day of closing...Often you hear of something going wrong at closing ( such as a change in the buyer's credit score, thus loan not approved). At least 24 hours after closing. IMO

RE: No water in HW heater

The worst is that the electrical element will burn out...If the heater was turned off then nothing bad....Element is very easy to replace. Good Luck
