Has Kingsley Coach shut its doors?

ZIMMERMAN, Minn. -- Nobody knows for sure what's happening at Kingsley Coach, but the signs point toward another manufacturer shutting its doors.

Reports to RV Industry News today suggested that the company had ceased operations. The telephone system is not working for their toll-free or local lines. E-mail is being accepted through their website.

However, staff at Zimmerman City Hall report they, too, have been unable to reach the company concerning a water bill at the numbers they have on file. City workers believed the company was still operating, but didn't know for sure.

Calls to PTA Holdings, one Kingsley's partners in developing new fuel cell technology, caught one of the principal owners by surprise. He, too, had not heard anything from the company.

Kinglsey Coach is a manufacturer of custom motorhomes, command post vehicles, emergency response vehicles and mobile medical units.

RV Industry News will continue monitoring the story and provide updates when available.
