    Well at least they are not closing permanently. As far as I can keep track, ALFA, TETON HOMES, ALPENLITE, & TRAVEL SUPREME have closed for good. It seems like there is another big manufacturer of 5th Wheel/Trailers that has recently closed, but I can't remember which one. :eek:

    Not to spread rumors but, I have been told that Fleetwood, Coachman, Numar and a couple others are in trouble.

    Sad but afraid we are going to see a lot of this. :( Worst thing about it is folks will be out of jobs.

    Rod with Chevy, Dodge and Ford in money trouble it probably will bleed over into NASCAR. Guess we'll just have to watch all Toyotas run :(

    For now I can still go to Cummins for engine repair if Dodge quits producing. But then the Cummins is similar to the Energiser Bunny. It keeps on running. At least I hope it does. :bleh:

    I also was reading about Nu-Wa ,,,,, along with mfg's ,I also know some bigger dealers are fealing the pinch, 2 have closed there doors in my area,,,, but i think being a smaller dealer and not having to floorplan inventory ( lean and mean) is the way to go for the next few years,,,,,,
