If you go over to the Tiffin forum on this board Cruzer has posted some interesting information. I knew that the Phaeton was the #1 selling DP but I was surprised to see that Monaco did not make the top 5 yet Safari was #4. I rarely see any Safaris on the road except for older units. Is it possible that the people who put out those figures separated all the different Monaco models?

Data can always be sliced and diced in ways that suit the presenter.

I wonder...Is there some one who calls every DMV in the country to find out what brand of coach was registered in that state? How else would you know what was sold? If you contacted every manufacturer they can only tell you what coaches dealers bought. These could still be sitting on their lots waiting for a buyer. Just wondering?????

There are several ways. The dealer may not actually "own" the coach. The mfgr may own it. The mfgr gets warranty information from the buyer. The dealer may have an agreement with the mfgr, part of the deal to sell that mfgrs coaches, to tell the mfgr to whom and when a coach is sold.
The mfgrs used to place coaches on dealer lots with a contract that required the dealer to sell the coach within a defined period of time or buy it from the mfgr. One poor guy I talked to a few yrs ago had two identical coaches on his lot, one of which he owned the other still owned by the mfgr. He lamented that the dealer had dropped the price on the coach it owned leaving the dealer with a coach he owned, the price for which was well above what the mfgr wanted for "their" coach. You know which coach was going to sell first!!

Moanco probably sells more DP's than Tiffin but they are under a lot of labels: Monaco, HR, Safari and Bever. Then there are all the models of each make. Ford always claimed they had the #1 selling PU but actually GM outsold them if you added GMC to Chev.
