BLAH...BLAH...BLAH! I've heard this rhetoric before. It stiffles competition plain and simple. If Jayco wants to come out with a "kick-butt" product, they will have to run it up the ladder to see if they are stepping on one of the other subsidiaries toes.

I, and I am sure most of the other Precept owners,

they have been extremely helpful in every circumstance I have
encountered..

jayco...

hopefully this part of the Thor buy statement will hold true -

Thor will operate Jayco as an independent company as it does with its other subsidiaries, the release explained, adding that it will be “business as usual” at Jayco as their existing, experienced management team will continue to manage their operations and compete effectively in the RV market, just as they and their family have done for the past 48 years.

Was thinking of buying a '17 Seneca and giving my '14 to the kids. May have to wait a while, or maybe go with a Renegade. I don't trust publicly traded companies.

Jayco has sold to Thor

Jayco has sold to Thor for $576 million. Bontrager is going to continue to run Jayco as a subsidiary .

Saw on another site. No source other than that.
