Georgie Boy website?

It seems the Georgie Boy website is gone? I type it in and get sent to Coachmen RV. Did the Georgie Boy line discontinue? Just curious.

P.S. I do know it's made by coachmen.

This is one of Forest River's holdings. I believe Georgie Boy is still in production for 2011.

It is odd, though. The old Georgie Boy Manufacturing site takes you to Coachman, but no mention of the GBM coach brands there. Nor on the Forest River site either.

Georgia Boy became part of Coachman before Coachman sold their RV business to Forest River, so they both came over together. But GBM seems to have gotten lost in the shuffle...

I/T glitch or something more sinister?

I e-mailed coachmen, this is what they said;

Hello Peter,

Thank you for your inquiry into the Georgie Boy line. Georgie Boy was
purchased by Coachmen a couple years ago. With that said, we at Coachmen
RV still retain the rights to Georgie Boy's product lines. We are
currently building the Mirada and just came out with the new Encounter
gas motorhome, which Encounter used to be a Georgie Boy brand. If you
are looking for anything particular, feel free to contact me.

Thanks Again,
Joe Mullen
National Sales Manager
Coachmen RV
Class A Division

So it seems the Georgie Boy line has been absorbed into Coachmen. Must be some sort of corporate re-structuring of the lines.

Sure looks as though they have dropped several of the GBM brand names, like Pursuit and Cruisemaster. Mirada has always been a Coachman brand, so that doesn't count, but Encounter was a GBM name.

Wonder if Customer Support or Parts will know anything about GBs?
