Eleven Picked, RV/MH Heritage Foundation Class of 2018 Hall of Fame Inductees


ELKHART, Indiana.  The RV/MH Heritage Foundation board of directors has announced the names of those who will be honored and inducted into the RV/MH Hall of Fame (Hall) as members of the Class of 2018.

darryl-searer-credit=rv-mh-hall-of-fame-posted-ManufacturedHomeLivingNews-com-2Foundation President Darryl Searer said, “In an extraordinary move, the MH nominating committee recommended that the Cohron twin brothers (Darrel and Harrel) of Cohron’s Manufactured Homes in Indiana be inducted as one. Harrel is deceased.  So the Class of 2018 includes eleven inductees instead of the usual ten, five from the MH Industry and five from the RV industry.”

Congratulations to the eleven new honorees. All of them have had or are having outstanding careers and are richly deserving of this high honor,” Searer said in a media release to MHProNews.

RV-MH Hall of Fame, Elkhart, IN – US Destinations – manufacturedhomelivingnews.com

The RV-MH Hall of Fame is an event, museum and educational center all rolled into one. It is located right off Interstates 80 and 90 at The 100,000 square foot center has two levels, is often home to periodic regional RV Shows, as can be seen to the right in the photo below.

Searer again commended the work of the nominating committees that had to narrow a list of over 60 candidates down to the final eleven selected.  MH committee only evaluates the MH nominees and the same for RV.

Searer said, “We continue to be proud of the diversity of this year’s class, not only in the inductee’s gender, but also the diversity of regions within the U.S. as well as the diversion of nominee’s industry segments such as suppliers, manufacturers, dealers, community managers and developers, as well as association executives.”

The Class of 2018 will be officially inducted, states the foundation, into the RV/MH Hall of Fame at the Annual Induction Dinner on Monday, August 6, 2018, in Elkhart, Indiana. ## (News, announcements.)
