Skyline Corp was originally incorporated in Indiana in 1959, as successor to a business founded in 1951. Company designs, produces and markets manufactured housing, modular housing and recreational vehicles (travel trailers, fifth wheels and park models) to independent dealers and manufactured housing communities located throughout the United States and Canada. Manufactured housing represents homes built according to a national building code; modular housing represents homes built to a local building code. The Company sold 1,851 manufactured homes and 370 modular homes in fiscal 2013. They are available in lengths ranging from 30' to 76' and in singlewide widths from 12' to 16', doublewide widths from 18' to 32', and triplewide widths from 36' to 46'. The area of a singlewide ranges from approximately 400 to 1,200 square feet, a doublewide from approximately 700 to 2,400 square feet, and a triplewide from approximately 1,600 to 2,900 square feet. It also sold 4,336 recreational vehicles in fiscal 2013, which are sold under a number of trademarks for travel trailers, fifth wheels and park models. The principal markets for manufactured and modular housing are the suburban and rural areas of the continental United States and Canada. The principal buyers continue to be individuals over the age of fifty, but the market tends to broaden when conventional housing becomes more difficult to purchase and finance. The recreational vehicle market is made up of vacationing families, traveling retired couples and sports enthusiasts pursuing four-season hobbies. The Company provides the retail purchaser of its homes with a full fifteen-month warranty against defects in design, materials and workmanship. Recreational vehicles are covered by a one-year warranty. The warranties are backed by service departments located at the Company's manufacturing facilities and an extensive field service system. It is basically an assembler and installer of components purchased from outside sources. The major components used by the Company are electrical components, lumber, plywood, shingles, vinyl and wood siding, steel, aluminum, insulation, home appliances, furnaces, plumbing fixtures, hardware, floor coverings and furniture. The suppliers are many and range in size from large national companies to very small local companies. The manufacture, distribution and sale of manufactured housing, modular housing and recreational vehicles are subject to government regulations in both the United States and Canada, at federal, state or provincial and local levels.
