Suburban is the leading manufacturer and supplier of RV heaters, water heaters and cooking appliances for indoor and outdoor kitchens. Established in 1947, Suburban was originally a manufacturer of gas space heaters and then broadened production to include RV heaters after a customer asked if Suburban’s greenhouse heater could be converted to 12V for use in a motorhome. Suburban’s first-class products quickly gained the attention and respect of the RV community helping Suburban grow into an industry leader with a reputation for dedication, ingenuity, and reliability. Suburban is one of the largest employers in its hometown of Dayton, Tennessee, with a commitment to community support, worker empowerment, and continued growth. Today, the name Suburban continues to be synonymous with high-quality products that enhance the RV lifestyle.
In 1998 Suburban became part of the Airxcel family of brands, which also includes Maxxair, Aqua-Hot, Coleman-Mach, Dicor Products, United Shade, Vixen Composites, MCD, CAN, Cleer Vision Windows, and Cleer Vision Tempered Glass. Airxcel is headquartered in Wichita, Kansas with ten facilities across the U.S. and Europe. It is the leading designer, manufacturer and distributor of the most critically functional products for the RV Industry.
