Upstart travel trailer manufacturer Brinkley RV has announced it is adding industry-vet Bill Fenech to its ownership team. Fenech, who previously worked for Grand Design RV and Barletta Boat Company, will reportedly take an advisory role with the company. He joins a list of execs that include Micah Staley, Ryan Thwaites, Nate Goldenberg, and Ron Fenech, each of whom has years of experience in the RV space.
The startup came out of stealth mode in May of 2022 and immediately garnered plenty of attention, thanks in part to its very experienced team. Brinkley is currently focused on designing and building fifth wheel and travel trailers that will debut in early 2023. At the time, the company had just broken ground on its facilities in Elkhart County, IN.
“I am so happy to be with this incredible team and not just the owners,” Bill Fenech said in a press release heralding his arrival. “Everyone is pumped and working hard to see Brinkley bring its vision to reality. We are on the verge of creating something great here, and I’m excited and honored to be a part of it and look forward to helping make Brinkley RV great. Watch out, RV industry, here we come!”
“It’s exciting to have Bill join Brinkley RV,” Ron Fenech says in the same press release. “He brings a tremendous amount of knowledge and energy to the company. We all look forward to working with Bill.”
Brinkley has also announced that it is adding a fourth production facility to its initial build plan. The first of those facilities is expected to come online soon and will commence production of the Model Z trailer by the end of the year. It will also serve as the company’s corporate headquarters as it introduces new models in the future.
