When we bought Green River Cabins — nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains in Campobello, SC — in 2006, we brought with us a wealth of knowledge on RV and cabin manufacturing. With more than 1000 cabins to our credit, the Green River Cabins team is qualified, dedicated, and talented — superior craftsmen who take pride in our trade.

Todd Garland
BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT / SALES MANAGER / MARKETING
Todd joined Green River Cabins with a real estate development and finance background. Todd has spent the last 15 years in Real Estate working for a land development company and Real Estate Auction firm prior to joining GRC in 2011. He also holds an active real estate license in two states and has been part of numerous multi-million dollar land development transactions.

“It’s exciting to work for a company that’s builds a quality, affordable cabin, that fit perfectly into the smaller housing downsizing trend. Our customers are looking to simplify and enjoy life rather than maintaining and being tied down to a larger property. They appreciate the extremely high quality and value of our cabins. This, coupled with the ability to add options to the cabin specifically for their needs, land, and lifestyle, is just an added bonus.’
