Former Carriage site in Millersburg up for sale

MILLERSBURG — A little over 10 months after Carriage Inc. shut down its luxury RV operations, the former company’s 55-acre site is up for sale.

The campus includes 19 buildings, according to information from Key Auctioneers of Indianapolis, the company handling the sale and also serving as court-appointed receiver for the company’s assets.

@Default:“This premier industrial real estate offers endless potential for buyers in manufacturing, engineering and distribution,” said Jeff Doner, principal broker at Key Auctioneers. “Among the property’s 19 buildings is a five-year-old, 440,000-square-foot manufacturing facility. The facility is state-of-the-art with high ceilings, wide bays, lots of power and plenty of loading doors.”

Carriage started in the late 1960s and built a reputation for quality high-end fifth wheels. The company ended production abruptly last year, putting about 200 people out of work after it was unable to reach an agreement with PNC Bank over a loan, according to court documents.

The company’s assets were auctioned off in February. Thor Industries’ Redwood RV bought the Carriage name and brands at that auction.
