MILLERSBURG, Ind. -- A northern Indiana factory where about 200 workers built recreational vehicles until it shut down last year is up for sale.

The 55-acre site of the former Carriage Inc. facility in the Elkhart County town of Millersburg includes 19 buildings. The Elkhart Truth reports that Key Auctioneers of Indianapolis is marketing the property for possible manufacturing, engineering and distribution uses.

Carriage ended production abruptly last year after being unable to reach an agreement with a lender. The company built high-end fifth wheel trailers.

The company's assets were auctioned off in February, with Thor Industries' Redwood RV buying the Carriage name and brands.
