Frederick Wightman

just your Hey, to guys. I outlook. wanted wholesale follow-up on

of to to RVIA currently, a the the range. I think down even for is year. where That low little mid-single-digit seems you at the be bit below said low-single-digit end the

you're the think be a of walk more will of at next Do you not level? it control could be few but in that Do through you of step see wholesale down? how it high will trending? sort you sort entire understanding function of the months just So, you gradual a industry, think

Michael Happe

on the the XXX, certainly of midpoint Yes, I their conversation the of control ultimately that is sort communicated that’s mean end think, higher wholesale Association morning. in We around the aren't of that’s I ultimately contribute the number. projection we the the range correct. entire we that of forecast RV this that within to Industry releases. industry The

chatter our the from production not about are unhealthy how us the understand an overstocking see RV to we their shipment OEMs standpoint. what the production dealers I with to they're are competitors But behavior things of hearing schedules. And wait we'll back March from how earlier, to and as frequent So, doing the positive in said coming managing other were numbers are standpoint. industry a
