This is what I found. At least it's as current as 2008...
For over 60 years General Coach makes the finest RV's in the market.
General Coach was established in Hensall, Ontario 1950. That said, General Coach is the oldest RV manufacturer still operating in Canada today.
General has had numerous corporate owners during the past 60 years, companies such as Divco Wayne, Boise Cascade, Bendix Corporation, Commodore Corporation and for the past 28 years; Thor Industries. In May 2010 Thor Industries sold all interest in General Coach Canada to Roger Faulkner who previously held the position of President. Roger Faulkner and Rogerís son Chris Faulkner continue the legacy. Today General Coach Canada is family owned and operated, giving it the personal touch.
Roger has been involved in all aspects of the RV Industry for the past 42 years. Roger is one of the founding fathers of the Canadian Go-RVing program and has held the position of President of the Canadian Recreation Vehicle Association numerous times. Roger is also the Chairman of the CSA-Z241 technical committee on Park Model Recreational Vehicles, a position he has held since 1990.
Today, General Coach Canada is totally focused on their line of park model recreational Vehicles, cabins and mobile homes. Built with the finest materials, not mass-produced but hand crafted by small town Canadian craftsmen who take pride in every unit they build. General Coach boasts the very best warranty in the business along with a parts and service department that genuinely care about your well being.
