So will the quality of all of these products descend to the Thor level, in the name of profit? I canít seem to escape Thor. Arrrrgh.

Thor keeps buying everyone out which eliminates competition. No more worries about improving a product line. What a shame

They also got MCD shades, Aqua-Hot, & Dicor. Part of the same holding company.

Will be hard not to use their products.

Sad but true. You cannot get away from Thor and Lippert.

I am glad that I am pretty much done with RVing. At my age, there won't be many more, if any more RVs.

If they keep it up, the feds will step in and declare Thor to be a monopoly. But more likely, Thor's lack of corporate integrity and horrible product quality will destroy all these companies.
