12-5-2017 -- NeXus RV is the new owner of the 26,736 SF industrial building on 2.45 acres at 2994 Paul Drive in Elkhart. Bill Kuhns, SIOR, assisted in the sale. NeXus RV, a manufacturer of Class C, Class B+, Super C and Class A motorhomes, plans to use the new building for pre-delivery inspection, camping simulation and on-site service. In August the Elkhart-based company announced it would shift to dealer sales instead of factory-direct sales. The company closed five of its own dealerships but will market its products through around 50 dealerships nationwide. NeXus was founded in 2010 by Claude Donati and Dave Middleton.
“Each and every unit we build goes through a camping simulation which takes around four hours to complete,” said Donati. “With the increase in volume we are going to experience, we want to make sure this process continues to assure the best product possible upon delivery.”
