rv-pro.com August 2018 • RV PRO • 55 Sweden. Later, that com- pany was acquired by the German manufacturer Seitz, which in turn was acquired by Dometic. Today, that company supplies acrylic windows to the industry through Elkhart, Ind.-based Dometic North America. "We started bringing over a lot of our Europe- an-based products about 10 years ago," says Mike Boyer, director of RV-OEM sales for Dometic North America. "Anything that had that European flair, we started bringing over and offering it to our cus- tomers. The product line is actually very old." Trans Atlantic Products is another Elkhart-based company that imports acrylic windows for the RV industry as part of its product line. President Dan Rodabaugh says he was working in the RV industry in Europe when he became aware of the Slovenian manufacturer Plastoform – which started making the windows in the mid-1970s – and entered into a partnership with that firm. Elkhart, Ind.-based Trans Atlantic Products provides acrylic windows to a number of North American RV manufacturers, including EarthRoamer, Liberty Outdoors, Hymer North America, nuCamp and TAXA Outdoors. Trans Atlantic sources its products from European supplier Plastoform, which has a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Slovenia (pictured).
