Wonder if those percentages will decrease in the next quarter due to higher gas/fuel costs

Yeah I know the price of fuel will inevitably be a factor in RV and Tow vehicle sales.

I know that with fuel prices going up the last few years I see more people in this area buying and renting seasonal lots on the river. The lots have gone up in price to the point that three and four people have been banding together to buy a lot.

Well the manufacturers just went through a situation with to many new trailers sitting on the lots. Perhaps some of them didn't learn. I know a dealer in a nearby town still had new 08 and 09's on his lot last summer. That was the summer of 2010 and the 11's were comming out in just a few more months. Even buying at a good discount can you imagine the depreciation upon buying one of them?
