    Anybody who thinks that Thor was just off somewhere minding their business when all this went down must not have noticed that on February 14, they agreed to subordinate their claims against EHGNA to Corner Flag’s–basically, they agreed that in the list of secured creditors, they would get paid AFTER Corner Flag (the Hymer family). That’s an awfully nice thing to do for a perfect stranger, and moreover, it’s likely an awfully unethical thing for a publicly traded company to do unless there’s something in it for them and their shareholders.

    Did anyone see on the credit list ERWIN HYMER GROUP SE is $181,317.881 to it self isnt that odd Jimmy boy, Howard what you know about Hymer screwing Hymer ????

    Just the beginning of the RV industry pullback. Suppliers would be very well advised to immediately institute immediate cash payments upon delivery. No $$ + no unloading of supply trucks. Many on this creditor list are owed bug bucks and probably have to declare bankruptcy themselves. K-W Leather is just one example.

    Wow…a 50 k Christmas party at the expense of the vendor. Now that’s low.

  • Tom Barr says:

    Based on the press release in January of accounting irregularities and surprises, you would expect that more then 1/3 of the outstanding debt was owed to parties other than Hymer which is not the case. Was the bankruptcy planned by Hymer and Thor since Thor agreed to buy the company? Were payments to vendors delayed or not made in anticipation of the bankruptcy? Warranty repairs were not approved during the last three weeks of operation. If bankruptcy was planned by Hymer and Thor and Hymer NA was not paying their bills to vendors unfair, like insider trading? With so much of the debt owed to Hymers parent, this was no surprise.
