LISLE, Ill. — Monaco RV is changing its name to Navistar RV, though the Monaco brand will remain alongside Holiday Rambler and R-Vision.
“The integration of Navistar and Monaco RV has resulted in better products and higher efficiencies,” said Daniel Ustian, Navistar chairman, president and CEO. “Updating the name of our RV company demonstrates our long-term commitment to the RV industry. When a customer buys a recreational vehicle built by Navistar RV, they know they’re getting products with proven components, many of which are used in other Navistar vehicles—vehicles that move American goods, help keep troops safe, and ensure the safe transportation of schoolchildren.”
Navistar bought Monaco RV in 2009 and integrated design, development and testing with its truck and bus product development.
Monaco and Holiday Rambler motorized RVs are built in Wakarusa, and Holiday Rambler and R-Vision towable RVs are built in Elkhart and in Oregon.
