The figure I get for 2015 Jayco before tax profit is 5%
As an investment 5% does not seem that good.

So, unless I missed it. Some are mentioning quality may go downhill with this purchase of Jayco. No one has mentioned the 2 year warranty. I wonder if that will be eliminated down the road? If it does, I gotta believe sales will drop.

The good news is that 83 percent of RV manufacturing is now under the control of two people Bob Martin, the CEO of Thor Industries, and Peter Liegl, the CEO of Forest River.

I don't see any good news in a virtual monopoly of a large industry.

I just bought a 16 Eagle two weeks ago. I guess this will be my last Jayco. Really is a shame.
