One of his favorite camping memories includes meeting his future wife. "In 2000, on the beach in Gulf Shores, Ala., I saw a group of girls laying out by the beach and told my friends, 'I want that one!' We ended up hanging out the whole week, reconnected on Facebook in 2010, and got married in 2012." Nate Goldenberg General Manager, Grand Design RV Goldenberg is the general man- ager for Grand Design's Solitude and Momentum products. He has 13 years of wholesale RV industry experience. At the age of 20, he was hired at Keystone RV and quickly advanced within the Keystone organization. In 2010, he joined Dutchmen Mfg. (a Thor division), where he served as general man- ager. At Dutchmen, he created one of the industry's top-selling luxury toy hauler fifth wheels. Most recently, Goldenberg has led the development of the Grand Design Momentum toy hauler and the redesign of the Solitude fifth wheel product line. Goldenburg says he has many memories of traveling the eastern U.S. in an RV with his family. "One of the funniest memories was my father driving under a low bridge and ripping off the air conditioners," he says. "After that, it seemed that he always found a way to cause some sort of damage to the RV on most trips we took."
