Old Monaco plant may come back to life!

I read this article in the RV Travels newsletter.

Linn County, Ore., was hit hard when RV builder Monaco Coach shut down its manufacturing plant in Harrisburg during the big economy downturn. Now locals are hopeful some jobs will come back as RV manufacturer Forest River says it will soon reopen the plant to build towables.

Hope it works out for the folks who lost their jobs. Sounds like a good thing for them.

Glad to see the plant being put back into use. Has to be great news for the locals. Hopefully Forest River will operate the factory better than Monoco did.
