Good or bad?

So I just read an article about Jayco selling out to Thor. Any thoughts about the buyout? Is Jayco doomed like the rest of Thor products, money over quality? Will be interesting to see.

I don't think there will be any suffering... my airstream is doing pretty well after being invested in by Thor Industries years back.

All other entities operated with Thor Industries backing, that are upper end products, are doing well.

The entry level entities are still making.. well, entry level stuff.

Plasma800 brings up some good points. Thor industries is a holding co. Sometimes an influx of capital can improve manufacturing. Insiders aren't noting huge management tweaks. Perhaps they won't micro-manage the successful entities. Indeed time will tell. The industry as a whole has QC issues that need to be addressed.
