Open Range President Randy Graber made the announcement this week, saying that the new fifth wheel will be "revolutionary."
Graber explained that the new Open Range won't be exhibited at the show because no space was available by the time the company incorporated in early August.
Open Range launched production last week of their new "mid-upper-priced" fifth-wheel lineup in a 130,000-square-foot, three-building manufacturing facility on Indiana 5 north of U.S. 20 in Shipshewana.
Graber says Open Range currently employees about 40 people and expects to increase to 100 by year-end. The company wants to establish 150 to 200 dealers throughout the U.S. and Canada, now that production is up and running.
"We're hoping to show a number of dealers our first product line during the Louisville show," said Graber. "We think this will be a timely introduction for several reasons, one of which is that we've taken a new approach to building fifth-wheels. The Open Range fifth wheel is a product dealers can stock knowing that it is genuinely different than anything else on their lot."
Graber isn't releasing many details regarding his Open Range fifth-wheel yet, except to say that there will be a "full range" of models in multiple lengths with both double and triple-slide floorplans and "interiors that rival the best in the business right now."
Dealers interested in the details on the private showing may contact the company at (260) 768-7771 or at rgraber@openrangerv.com.

Randy Graber
Randy Graber of Elkhart, Indiana, a 25-year veteran of the Northern Indiana RV industry, announced today that he has founded Open Range RV Company in Shipshewana, Indiana. The new company has begun operations following incorporation on August 6, 2007. Starting with a staff of about 60 including production personnel, Graber said he expects to bring 100 new jobs to the community by the end of the year.
Open Range RV expects to begin production of its flagship product of the same name in mid-October. Graber said the new product, a fifth wheel, "will be unlike anything yet seen in the RV industry."
Graber said his decision to start his own company came earlier this summer when an unusual opportunity arose. He said, "While I enjoy all the aspects of operating an RV company, I am at heart a creative person who is driven to innovate and engineer product improvements. Further, the ever advancing technologies in construction materials and components continually challenge me to create better products for the dollar spent."
"At a certain point in one's career," Graber said, "you come to realize that the best way to accomplish your dream is to spearhead it yourself.
Open Range RV will occupy 120,000 sq. ft. of manufacturing facilities with three buildings on 17 acres on Indiana 5 north of US 20 in Shipshewana.
An Indiana native, Graber started his career at Newmar Corporation, Nappanee, followed by an eight-year stint in retail sales in Amarillo, Texas. He then returned to the Indiana manufacturing environment. In recent years, he has worked in management and product development at both K-Z RV, Shipshewana, and Keystone RV Company, Goshen, Indiana.
