Looks to me that Hymer had first quarter gains from building all those cheap units for Camping World. Really pumped them out. Now that has passed, the gap with WGO has narrowed. What I don't have a feel for is how Paseo sales have been doing and the ramp up of those units at WGO.

June shipment data has been published.

The pace of growth has slowed but the 39% increase YOY is fantastic.

That is a major change with Winnebago topping 40% and ascending to number 1. Since Winnebago and Roadtrek both market Promasters that can't be blamed on the popularity of the platform.

Wow

A game changer is in the work again?

Is Hymer a flash in the pan?

Ok, I haven't been following the new market as much as you guys....

But it seems to me that Winnebago simply got their market share back because there was nothing being built by them between the VW based Rialto and whatever they started making on the Sprinter platform. Is that very summarized statement correct?

Yes, but I think they are referring to the more recent history (couple years) of Class Bs where Roadtrek(Hymer) and Winnebago have been topping each other in Market share..
