Officials at RV dealerships across the country say they are concerned about the future of Earthbound Recreational Vehicles.

Shifts in the company’s business strategy have left some dealers with long-standing ties to the company and its owners feeling left in the dark.

Earthbound President Charles Hoefer said the company was focused on lining up everything for its new business model and “confidently” projected that production would begin again by mid-November. He said the company will start work on both new and old models at that point.

The start up company located in Marion in 2010 with the city backing a $2 million bond with county economic development income tax (CEDIT) money to support its startup. The company never met expectations to hire around 180 employees to produce 400 or more motorhomes a year at its 1001 E. 38 St. factory.

Production has been shut down at its factory as the company retools its strategy in anticipation for an announced new “boutique” motor coach line with a higher price point than older models. Only 100 units are slated to be sold in North America at starting price of $84,900.
