Hasn't it always technically been Thor?

I didn't think/know it was ever a Cameo. Tom Montague came from Carriage after they were history as GM of RW & he wanted to bring the Carriages back to life under Thor, but it never got done til after he went to Heartland doing Landmarks. If I'm correct the Cameo/Carriage line is gone again, I think now their design may have been gobbled up by the Lux brand. They were, to my knowledge, building RWs at Crossroads in Topeka from the get go. Hoping someone with better knowledge than I will chime in & correct me if that's not the correct turn of events,

I am attempting to post an interview with Don Emahiser I found from April 2011. For some reason this forum is not allowing me to post the link.

Not sure when they moved it under Crossroads but it has always been owned by Thor at the top.
Put https:// in front of this.

To my knowledge Danny's got it right. Redwood has always been a Thor owned company, then became a division of Crossroads and then Keystone. It has always had its own General Manager. Tom Montague started it, Andy Cripe screwed it up royally, and Ryan Juday is doing the best he can to fix the Andy mess without putting it further into red ink.
Original plant was not in Topeka (can't remember the little town right now) but production was moved to Topeka about 2 1/2 years ago.

Cameo / Carriage was a plan of Tom's but as Danny said, it never materialized. We were shown a pre production unit at the Rally about 4 years ago and most of us weren't really impressed. It just kind of went away..........

Just some interesting history of Redwood

Redwood RV | RV Business

Looks like July 2010, Redwood RV was a start up division of Thor as a high end luxury fifth wheel company.

In February 2012, Redwood won the rights to the Carriage name through auction. Cameo was part of that. I think it was around then the divisions were Carriage, Inc., Crossroads RV, and Redwood RV, all under Thor. All merged sometime in 2013, with Redwood as a part of Crossroads RV.

The latest division merge under Thor - bringing Redwood under Keystone management. I lost track at that point.

Great read. One sentence caught my eye "The 38GK also offers two bathroom vanities, up to four TVs and several of Redwood’s core standard build items including Level Up, flush mounted windows, and whisper quiet AC."

Where would the 4th TV go in a GK?
