Over 54 years of RV manufacturing pride and tradition
Mr. Hubert Ward began an RV manufacturing tradition in 1959 with his creation of Tortuga Trailers . A move from Texas to Lyons Colorado several years later, he began designing for Red Dale. Using the knowledge and skills acquired as a designer, he created with Bob Hawkins, Warhawk Campers. After the sale of Warhawk, he assisted in the start-up of *Aspen Campers. But as with most entrepreneurs, Hubert was anxious to create a company all his own. In 1969 he created *hallmark , with his son Robert working beside him learning the business. With Hubert's passing in 1983, Robert alone took *hallmark into his own experienced hands. He passed his knowledge of manufacturing and business to the next generation. With the sale of *hallmark in 2001 to his brother, Robert assisted his son, Brian Ward, with the creation of Outfitter Manufacturing, Inc. In a few short years, Outfitter has developed from a fledgling start-up, building campers at *hallmark, to a full scale manufacturing operation delivering truck campers around the country from its location in Longmont, Colorado. And they have established a reputation for designing and building light weight, durable, and highly functional campers created from industry leading materials that Hubert would be very proud of.
