RV/MH Hall of Fame Devises Plan to Keep Rolling

April 11th, 2011

Following up on a story from April 6 about returning the RV/MH Hall of Fame in Elkhart, Indiana, to solvency, RV Business reports several proposals are being considered to keep the doors open.  One of the plans involves condensing the vintage RVs into a smaller space, and allowing up to 25,000 square feet for weddings, graduations, conventions and other private events, making it one of the larger event spaces in the area.  The 25 acres east of the Hall could be developed to draw outdoor events and RV shows.  In addition, Camping World’s president offered to invest $325,000 in the facility in exchange for having space to sell RV accessories in the building.  Another idea is to sell the building and lease it back from the new owner.  The Hall is nearly $5 million in debt.  The RV/MH Heritage Foundation that oversees the Hall of Fame will consider all the options.
