Summary of our history

Shortly after the RV/MH Heritage Foundation was formed in March 1972, the Foundation honored the inagural class of inductees into the RV/MH Hall of Fame. Since that time over 300 industry pioneers and leaders have joined the elite group.

Today, the Foundation maintains the national RV/MH Hall of Fame, Museum, Library and Conference Center at its headquarters in Elkhart, Indiana.
