Interesting chart showing how there are 3 main players in RV manufacturing and only a couple handfuls of independents. Biggest surprise to me was that Thor owns Airstream.



AIrstream is where THOR started.  https://www.thorindustries.com/history/

Wade Thompson and Peter Orthwein founded THOR Industries in 1980 with the purchase of Airstream, an already iconic brand. Since going public in 1984, THOR has grown both organically and through strategic acquisitions in both recreational vehicles (RVs) and buses. Today, the THOR Family of Companies is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of recreational vehicles.

As we have been looking to replace our travel trailer I've learned a lot about who owns who and what brands are part of what subsidiaries. I might be off some but I recall Thor and Forest River control about 80% of the RV market with Winnebago in third place with 8%. That doesn't leave much left for the rest of the bunch.
