Thor has been buying...they acquired Four Winds Intl. and Damon, creating Thor Motor Coach (TMC).
See: Company | Thor Motor Coach #1 Brand of Motorhomes | Diesel Pushers,Class A,Class B,& Class C RV s
They also acquired Dutchmen, Heartland, Air Stream and others...for the Towable line.

The Chateau was a model line for Four Winds in the past...but now they are being sold side by side:
New Motorhomes | Top Diesel Pushers, Class C, Class B Plus, & Class A RV Brands by Thor Motor Coach
Obviously some brands have a value (to them)...like, I bet you will NEVER see the end of the "Air Stream" Brand. But, they have dumped the Damon brand all together.
Lucky for Damon owners like me, most of the model line is still being made, and made in the same factory, AND customer service and unit quality has not taken a hit.
These new "Super C's" (F450/F550 chassis) looks like a fantastic idea and timely too, with the end of the good 'ol E Series cab/chassis coming in 2014.
Best of luck
