Recreational vehicle sales are up, and Airstream, Heartland and Keystone are planning factory expansions. Airstream will add about 94,000 square feet to its 134,000-square-foot plant in Jackson Center, Ohio. The $5.9 million project is expected to be completed by mid-2015 and will add approximately 125 jobs during the next three years. Airstream President Bob Wheeler said, “RVs are built by hand, so there’s not a lot of equipment we need.”

Thor Industries is planning expansion projects at two RV factories in northern Indiana. Company officials say it is spending $8 million on its Heartland expansion and expects to add 85 jobs, while work has already started on a new $6 million plant in Goshen for Keystone travel trailer production.
