Prowler, Mallard, Gearbox and all the brand names that once distinguished Fleetwood travel trailers and fifth wheels now belong to Heartland Recreational Vehicles LLC.

The towable manufacturer bought the Fleetwood trademarks from the bankrupt Fleetwood Enterprises for $306,000 in a transaction that was finalized this week. Heartland bought the rights to the names only as they pertain to travel trailers, explained Len McGill, in-house counsel for Fleetwood Enterprises, noting the RV maker would be limited in applying these monikers to products other than towables.

Company officials did not return a phone call Thursday, but in a press release Heartland stated it expects to begin manufacturing towables under the newly acquired brands within the next 12 months.
