Why sad? They own all the others!! QC sucks on ALL makes/ models/manufacturer, the same folks currently putting them together that don't give a sh## will continue to half a## throw them together, so it really doesn't matter whose name is o the letter head.

Why sad??
Ever heard of the word monopoly?
We are just about at the end of having any choice on what to purchase. Competition is great.
So, yes, I find that sad.

The good thing is that the present managers of Jayco are still going to run that division.

Probably like all the other entities of Thor, they'll be there about a year. I've owned my RW for 3 1/2 years & on the third GM.

That is what they say to keep existing customers that are happy with their product...Just like CR, Thor will micro manage that company also...Need to start a pool on the number of CEO's Jayco will go through if Thor buys them out... Still counting at CR...Oh by the way who is the CEO of CR now...

You are absolutely correct...Thor seem Hell bent on owning the whole tow-ably industry...Just recently bought out Keystone & Montana ( I'm pretty sure I am correct on that last statement)...

You are correct, but wasn't recently. I bought a Heartland in Aug 08 & Thor bought them shortly after & fairly certain that they had already acquirred the others at that time.
