RV sales for the three months ending April 30, 2010 totaled $558 million, up 79 percent from $312 million last year. Thor’s success has lasted for ninth months now as RV sales for the company totaled $1.28 billion through the first three quarters, up 65 percent from $777 million last year.
“The RV industry continues a strong wholesale re-stocking trend, as evidenced by Thor’s large order backlog,” says Peter B. Orthwein, Thor chairman, CEO & president. “Importantly, Thor’s recent internal retail sales results also demonstrate substantial improvement over last year, including the March and April periods. This bodes well for a better balance between retail demand and wholesale replenishment as we move forward,”
