Fleetwood founder John Crean remembered

The Press Enterprise of Southern California features a profile of Fleetwood Enterprises Inc. founder John Crean, who died last week at the age of 81.

John Crean founded Fleetwood in 1950, building the company into a leader in the RV and mobile home industry.

According to the article, Crean was a hands-on manager who made sure Fleetwood RVs were built with quality.

In 1987, when an RV prototype did not meet with Crean's expectations, he went to the factory and personally finished the job. Crean and his wife later took the RV out for testing on a road trip.

Crean's son now runs Alfa Leisure, crediting his father for guiding him with sound business principles as he set up his own RV business.
