  1. The only sales / shipment numbers that may surpass this is tool shipments from new buyers finishing construction of and repairing their shiny new RV. The more they ship, the worse they get. If they keep having record months of shipments driving the interstates could be perilous when the trailers start losing walls and roofs on the way to the dealers. Caveat Emptor!

  2. This is great for repair shops. They will be bogged down for years to come. The truth is, there’s a sucker born every minute!
