Market share breakdown for 2017 according to SSI was:
Winnebago Industries Inc. 35.6% market share.
Erwin Hymer Group North America 29% market share.
Thor Industries Inc. 16.7% market share.
SSI: Class B Sales Show 26.5% Increase For 2017 | RV Business

Note there is a slight discrepancy in reported growth rates because RVIA tracks unit shipments while SSI reports sales.
Thanks for doing the update It would be great to keep it going. I have a 16 yr old Class A that I've been working on that keeps me busy so I'm not able to keep up with Class B related events as much as before.

Well, let's keep this in it's proper priority. They've said a a can of beer is only going to go up 1/3 of a cent per can. So all of you can stop sweating this current crisis, as the end of the world as we know it is not coming to pass.

With apologies to Avanti and the issue of drift, I'm not so sure. Under present conditions, we've been sending a good portion of our steel recycling business to other countries, presumably because it has not been attractive to reprocess it here. That may change if a big tariff comes to pass.
