About the RV/MH Hall of Fame
Darryl Searer, President
The RV/MH Heritage Foundation began its operation in 1972 and operates today as the RV/MH Hall of Fame and the Northern Indiana Event Center. It is a 501c-3 public not for profit.


  1. To maintain a Hall of Fame to honor the leaders of our Industries. Today we have over 400 members in the Hall called the "Wall of Fame"
  2. To archive our history. Today we have a great library with over 20,000 industry publications
  3. To create a display of historic products. Today we have a one of a kind museum with 100 year old RV's
  4. To aid in promoting the RV/MH industries. Today we have the GoRving Hall for New RVs and the new Manufactured Home display for MH.
  5. To provide a first class event center. Today we operate the Northern Indiana Event Center ( N.I.E.C ) with over 35,000 sq.ft.of space available in seven different areas..

In the past 4 years we have made great strides in improving the financial stability and reducing the debt of the RV/MH Heritage Foundation to a position of 90% equity allowing us to turn towards future expansion of the facility.

On August 1st 2016 we will be launching a new vision for the future of the RV/MH Heritage Foundation with new opportunities for the industry people to step forward to make the vision a reality. Watch for the new vision coming soon.
