    Origins in the 20th century.

    Fleetwood RV’ origins date back to 1950, when John C. Crean formed Coach Specialties Company in southern California, as a maker of window blinds for travel trailers. Around 1953, Crean renamed the company to Fleetwood Trailer Company, a name inspired by the automotive bodies incorporated into various Cadillac lines of automobiles. In 1957, the company was reincorporated as Fleetwood Enterprises, Inc.

    During its first dozen years, the company moved from Compton to Paramount to Anaheim. It moved again in 1962 to Riverside, California. Fleetwood became a public company in 1965, reporting annual sales of $18.5 million.

    The company became part of the Fortune 500 in 1973, remaining there for nearly three decades. By 1989, Fleetwood RVs sales reached the one billion dollar milestone; five years later, it hit the same milestone in its sales of manufactured homes.

    In 2007, it was declared the top-selling manufacturer in its market, but it was announced in November 2008 that Fleetwood Enterprises was closing several factories across the United States.

    On March 10, 2009, the company filed for bankruptcy under Chapter 11 of the United States Code, and announced the closing of its travel trailer división.
