We have seen steady improvement in the RV market and we believe in the positive long-term trends for our industry. The RV lifestyle continues to remain popular with consumers and our prime target age audience continues to grow as more and more baby boomers enter retirement age. Winnebago management successfully managed the Company through the recession and has a healthy balance sheet and no debt.
As a leader in RV manufacturing technology, we have a continued commitment to be in the forefront of new product development. We have introduced exciting new products that are gaining market share in the North American market and will continue to strive for excellence as an RV industry leader.
