The Recreation Vehicle and Manufactured Housing Industries started with a common thread. That thread was "affordable housing" Although the industries took divergent paths in our current products, our roots are still there and together we share a state-of-the-art museum, library and Hall of Fame celebrating our heritage. We invite you to join us in a fascinating trip through the history of these two industries.

Ingram Family Issues New Challenge Grant to Retire the Ingram Family's Loan
The RV/MH Hall of Fame's mission is to retire the Ingram family's $3 million loan which was incurred during the construction phase of Hall facility. Industry icon, founder of Teton Homes and Hall Board member Robert "Boots" Ingram (since deceased) loaned the Hall $3 million to complete the construction. In addition to this loan, Ingram also donated $1 million to the Hall.
The Ingram's will match the principle payment by 50 percent which means the $3 million loan will pay off with $2 million.
"That means for every $100 you contribute, the loan will be reduced by $150."
