 How they are built: The Coachmen Galleria Class B campervan

We continue our video series visiting various RV manufacturing facilities around North America by traveling to Middlebury, Indiana near Elkhart to see how the new Coachmen Galleria Class B RVs are built.

We visited on the coldest day Northern Indiana has experienced in decades, a day so cold that the factory – and almost all businesses and schools in the area – were shut down.

Galleria Product Manager Nick Recchio and Plant Manager John Frey showed up, however, and showed Jennifer and me around and what makes the Galleria such a popular campervan.

  • Enjoyed the tour and thorough explanation of the how and why of the Coachman sprinter built out! I agree with Jennifer the cabinets are a work of art and I love the handles. How is the success with the cabinets latching? Would be good to see a comparison of the shower/toilets perhaps side by side in the various manufacturers you have compared. Mary Jane Curry

  • Did they mention when they started using that foil looking insulation? Just wondering what year models would have it.

  • We have dealt with Forest River and they have been incredible to deal with issues!
