Attachment 3760

Shipments are up 24% YTD

I'm not sure if the year end total will make it to 4,000 units but it's still a great year.
Are the Class B numbers real Class B's (not including B+)..?

I've asked the same question many times concerning the Thor numbers. I don't believe they sell as many pure B's as they claim, but Marco says they are genuine numbers according to his source.

The class A's are on a completely different list....

In 2013, the emailed response I received from Statistical Surveys Inc. was:

Quote:
At this point we only count Airstreams in the Class B report for Thor. That obviously could change as products change.
Basically, I think they do their best to make their reports as accurate as they possibly can.

My assumption is that B plus units would be included in the Class C totals. SSI's September report indicated that Thor is the leader in that category followed by Forest River.

Sales of used B's seems robust. Maybe 'folks' waiting for new tech (solar, heating, battery) to make it into the middle and lower market pricing for this part of the market.

Shipments are still up 21.6% YTD

There's still a chance to make it to 4,000 units for the year. It has been a great year for this segment of the RV market.

Interesting that the very little movement there is in Thor & PW looks like it came out of WGO.

But that probably isn't the case. There is a little over 7% not represented in these shares. My guess is Coachmen is making inroads with their value offerings, and that is coming out of WGO.
