Chevrolet Chinook Truck Camper

Many successful RV manufacturers can find their roots in the innovation of its founders.  These entrepreneurs create unique and sometime not conventional product that will provide real solutions to the consumer.  The Chinook is not expection to this American ideal.

It all begins in 1938 where Sy and Rose Mair started in a small garage is Orange County California.  For nearly 30 years it was among the leaders in the RV industry.  Over time they would relocate to Union Gap Washington.

During the mid 20th century the first motorhomes started showing up on the highways.  Many of the first models was a cross between a slide in camper mounted to a truck chassis.  Truck chassis would be ordered from the factory then a camper would be mounted to the truck.

The intellectual property right of the Chinook was acquired by Phil Rizzio in January 2013.  The IP included nameplates, designs, jig, molds, templates.  Phil is the owner of Wagon Trail RV and Creston RV. Wagon Trail RV is located in Las Vegas Nevada. Creston RV is located in Kalispell Montana.  These right allowed an expansion in product line.
