All American Group (formerly Coachmen Industries) is an American company whose divisions produced pre-fabricated housing. Based in Elkhart, Indiana, it was originally founded in 1964 as Coachmen Industries. It was listed on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol COA until 2009, when it was delisted for failing to maintain continued NYSE listing standards.

History[edit]

Coachmen Industries was founded by three brothers: Tom Corson, Keith Corson and Claude Corson. The brothers started the company in a 5,000-square-foot (460 m2) plant in downtown Middlebury, Indiana producing 12 travel trailer models, 1 truck camper style and 80 truck caps. Since 1964, Coachmen Companies have produced nearly 600,000 recreational vehicles of all sizes and types.[citation needed]

In December 2008, the company sold all of the assets of its RV Group to Forest River, Inc., a unit of Berkshire Hathaway.[1]

The company continues to operate in the modular housing business under the ALL AMERICAN HOMES and MOD-U-KRAF brand names.

Another division, All American Specialty Vehicles, in a joint venture with ARBOC Mobility, manufactures ADA-accessible buses.[2]
