The End of the Road for Glendale

Glendale RV, based in Strathroy, Ontario, has filed for bankruptcy and shut down its RV operations.

It’s no secret that I love my Glendale RV. If Miranda were totaled today and I had to replace her, I would still go with a Royal Classic, but a more recent, winterized one if I could find it.

Glendale stopped making class Cs in 2004 to focus on Titanium fifth wheels, a crushing blow, in my opinion, to Canadian full-timers looking for a good class C.

When I was doing my research before buying Miranda, I contacted Glendale to get more information about their 1997 Royal Classic. The person who responded to my query the next day said she had nothing on hand but she’d check out the archives when she had a chance. A couple of days later, a scan of the promotional brochure landed in my inbox. They also gave me leads on where I might be able to find double pane windows should I ever need to replace mine. That’s dang good customer service. A Titanium owner I occasionally correspond with had to take his rig to Strathroy for repairs and had nothing but praise for Glendale’s customer service, also.

I guess that all there’s left to say is “Thanks Glendale for making me such a wonderful home on wheels.”
