FreedomRoads Holding Company, LLC (“FreedomRoads”), an indirect subsidiary of Camping World Holdings, Inc. filed a lawsuit against Steve Weissmann (“Weissmann”), President of Tumbleweed Tiny House Company (“Tumbleweed”), a recreational vehicle manufacturer, to collect money due under the terms of a consolidated secured promissory note (the “Note”), which Defendant personally guaranteed.
FreedomRoads lent Tumbleweed over $2.5 million over the course of ten loans in 2017 and 2018 to help fund Tumbleweed’s growth. Tumbleweed defaulted on the Note when it stopped making payments in January 2020 and all sums became immediately due and payable when Tumbleweed filed a bankruptcy petition in March 2020.
FreedomRoads filed the lawsuit against Weissmann for breach of contractual obligations. The lawsuit seeks damages in the amount of unpaid principal and interest, attorneys’ fees, and costs. At the time the complaint was filed, the total amount due was over $3 million.
