Winnebago’s total backlog increased by 36% against the comparable prior year quarter, to $193.1 million. Competitor Thor Industries’ (NYSE:THO) quarterly earnings, reported earlier this month, revealed a backlog reduction of 18%. Although Thor’s management presented a credible argumentthat the organization’s backlog reduction is due to increased production capability, its shareholders nonetheless have worried over demand trends.

As my colleague Dan Caplinger recently pointed out, the recreational vehicle, or RV, market remains strong, but investors are concerned about Thor’s near-term prospects, given that it’s coming off a period of phenomenal revenue growth. Below, I’ll analyze five points made in Thor’s earnings release and most recent quarterly “questions and answers” document, which provide context around its current earnings and outlook.

Many people think of recreational vehicles as part of an iconic American pastime associated with the love of the open road. For Thor Industries (NYSE:THO), the RV manufacturer’s corporate home in Elkhart, Indiana, might seem about as far removed from international trade tensions as you could image. Yet even though the RV market has been extremely strong lately, Thor believes that what’s been going on between Washington and foreign trade partners could create headwinds that will eventually make their way to this company in America’s heartland.
