A relatively young RV manufacturer, but no less qualified or luxurious, Regency RVs has been making strides in the industry since its inception in 2014.
From 2015 onward, Regency RV has been trying to make a name for themselves as the next up-and-coming RV brand to watch.
Although they only carry two models at this time, they may expand in the future.
Because they are a smaller and newer manufacturer, Regency RVs have incredibly handcrafted and artisanal quality about them.
However, Regency RVs only make Class B models, so they won’t have those huge Class A or Toy Haulers in stock.

1. Where Are Regency RVs Made?
Regency RVs was founded in Fort Worth, Texas.
It is currently there in Fort Worth, Texas, where the manufacturer is located.
New acquisitions of the company have brought up discussions on whether or not Regency manufacturing plants might find a new home elsewhere.
However, Emahiser Group has stated that they would like to keep the local plant to remain in Fort Worth for the foreseeable time being.
2. Who Owns the Regency Company?
Wayne Davis was the original founder of Regency RVs after first experiencing a long history in the world of custom classic American cars from the 1970s through the mid-2000s.
The name “Regency” comes from Wayne’s custom car business, Regency and Tuscany Conversions.
In 2014, Regency RVs was born and had, according to Regency’s site, since produced the first Class B+ Luxury Motor Coach “Ultra Brougham” on a Mercedes-Benz Chassis platform.
They also “acquired the National Traveler brand,” which is a “Class B van built on the Ram Promaster chassis platform.”
They are currently owned by Emahiser Group, which bought Regency RVs after Wayne Davis’s retirement in 2020.
Wayne will continue to be an advisor or consultant on the business moving forward but has stated he is ready to be retired.
3. What Types and Sizes of RVs Do Regency Produce?
Regency RVs, at this time, only have two models to show: their “Ultra” and their “National Traveler” RVs.
Both of these models are Class B models and have many different features to explore:
The National Traveler – Regency RV:
Built on a Ram ProMaster chassis and measuring at 20′ 11″ is the National Traveler RV by Regency.
This RV can tow up to 2,150 lbs and has a seating capacity of between 4 and 6 passengers, depending on which floorplan you choose.
It comes with three different floorplans:
The Explore floorplan is the only one that sleeps up to four using what they describe as a 50×65 Euro Bunk, whereas the other two only sleep two guests.
Each model comes with ample seating, storage, and a small kitchenette with an induction cooktop and a microwave. They all also come with a small bathroom.
Furthermore, this model has a moveable 24″ TV that can be shown on the outside of the RV for some lawn chair movie nights or game watching.
It also comes with 14 more inches of headroom for “an expansive interior feel.”
The Ultra – Regency RV:
The Ultra RV by Regency is built on a Mercedes-Benz chassis and is 25′ 1″ in length with a total exterior height of 10′ 6″, including the roof and A/C unit.
With a 24.5-gallon fuel capacity and an unloaded vehicle weight of 9,5000 lbs, this RV is a perfect option for smaller families or couples who like their luxury in compact packages.
This RV has four separate floorplan options with sleeping capacities ranging between two and three passengers.
There are two twin bed options, a murphy bed option and an island bed option.
The Ultra MB or Murphy Bed option comes with a larger bathroom and showering option that is very modern and pristine.
Each floorplan comes with a small kitchenette with a sink, cooktop, and food prep area. It also comes with stainless steel appliances and food storage.
Lounge seating and TV viewing make for a relaxing interior that is sure to please.
4. Does Regency Make a Toy Hauler?
Regency does not make a toy hauler at this time.
As of this moment, the two models – Ultra and National Traveler – are the only models that the company offers.
It is unclear whether Regency will invest in much larger Class A or Toy Hauler models in the future.
5. What Are the Smallest RVs from Regency?
The smaller of the two models is the National Traveler RV (pictured above).
It is five feet shorter in exterior length than the Regency Ultra and has a sleeping capacity of roughly two people, except for their Explore floorplan, which sleeps four.
Its bathroom options are smaller as well but are still spacious enough to be comfortable.
While this may be the smaller option, it comes with very pretty floorplans and interiors that any family would love to invest in!
6. What Are the Biggest RVs from Regency?
The Regency Ultra RV is the larger of the two models that Regency offers, measuring at 25 feet in exterior length – five more feet than the Regency National Traveler.
This model comes with larger sleeping and living quarters as well as a more spacious kitchenette and appliances.
The Murphy Bed model in particular (pictured above) is great both during the day and night, as it offers ample seating and table space before being pulled down into a large bed.
If you would like two twin beds, the Ultra has that floor plan design as well!
Five feet make all the difference when you are trying to “go big” with Regency RVs.
7. How Are Regency RVs Made?
All Regency RVs are built within Fort Worth, Texas, where the company began and has so far remained local with its craftsmanship.
Regency RVs build all their cabinets and drawers made from beech wood and craft them within their manufacturing facilities in Fort Worth, Texas.
Ultra RVs are built upon Mercedez-Benz chassis, while the National Traveler is built on a Ram Pro Master chassis. Once the shell and paint jobs are done, the RVs are sent to electrical, where the wires are run through.
Then the finishing and furnishing are done overtop that.
All RVs go through major checks and tests to make sure that they are ready for sale and then are sent to the dealerships.
8. What Are The Most Popular RVs by Regency?
Because Regency RVs only have two models, both are the more popular models of the company.
However, both have distinct differences and features that make them more popular for some customers than others.
For example, the Ultra model is a little more luxurious and has options to have a larger separate bathroom than the National Traveler. The National Traveler, however, has an option to create a pull-down “Euro Bunk,” which helps sleep more guests in a smaller space.
Depending on your needs or wants, both models or only one might be your preferred choice.
9. Are Regency RVs For All Four Seasons?
As we’ve mentioned in previous articles that discuss all-season RVs, the idea of a four-season RV isn’t the same as a tent.
RVs are basically tiny houses on wheels in many cases and are built to accommodate those who would like to have an extended experience or trip with the comfort of home.
Therefore, they will have great AC and heating systems, interior fireplaces (electric), and a bed with a mattress.
Regency RVs have those systems, and some have an electric fireplace heater to keep you warm, as well as windows that open to let in natural breezes to keep you cool.
All of these features combined can keep you warm during winter or cool during summer. However, most RVs require further insulation or DIY methods to make sure that they can actually keep you as warm or as cool as you need to be.
Just like a four-season tent, you need to be careful how you camp or travel. Even if your RV is warm during winter, it is probably difficult to maneuver on icy or snowy roads, making it not necessarily a four-season camping tool.
Furthermore, any RV in the desert heat in the summertime will suffer from being too hot in the interior, and no amount of AC is going to help that – depending on your AC unit and whether or not it is able to run that hot for that long.
Basically, an RV can be considered four-seasonal because it is a tiny house on wheels, but you should always take extra steps to make sure that you are comfortable and safe.
