Had a nice chat with my local dealer today. He reports the bottom has passed. Things are looking up and he expects better sales for the rest of the year. I'm not saying we are out of the woods yet, I'm just saying that the worst is over. Airstream is a premium brand with a good product and great name recognition. I think it will hold if Thor can hang in there.
