Nope don't think people read...they just think they are the first to post things.

Please don't rush to conclusions that you THINK might happen.

In the last few years JAYCO spent quite a bit of cash, bought the assets of TRAVEL SUPREME ( now the ENTEGRA and new DESIGNER). Had a massive expansion of the MH plant and bought OPEN RANGE as well as the company who did their full body paint. It might have been a situation where they needed an influx of cash to keep things at a good level and possibly make more improvements.

Thanks Crabman for consolidating the topic. Grumpy, excellent point on Airstream's success since the Thor acquisition.

I posed the question on the Precept owners forum wondering if, IN TIME, Thor may influence Jayco to discontinue their gas Class A line since the Jayco brand is better known for it's C Class, trailers & Entegra brand. Coupled with Thor's other brands that have a wide Class A portfolio, in a consolidated world, does do they really need the Precepts and Alantes?

Now, as a very satisfied Precept owner, I would not like to see this, however......

Lastly, this is a sign of the times. Many family owned businesses on their second or third generations, are looking for an exit strategy (and or additional capital & resources to stay competitive) and with crazy cheap money available (credit lines and private equity), while disappointing, this is not too surprising.

IMHO

I must confess I am one of the guilty ones. In my defense, however, I do not read all of the forums, just select ones of interest to me. I do read recent threads in my selected forums before starting new ones though. There is only so much time in a day.

I was one of those who started a later thread on the subject. I spend quite a bit of time on the forum and just had not run across it. I'm not inclined to do a search every time I want to start a thread. I'd expect multiple threads on any subject this important.
