Thor vs Forest River

I've been looking at a Forest River FR3-28 in order to get something with a sofa and a dinette. I also have spent the last 8 weeks trying to get a build sheet for my Axis but have been unable to get Thor to move, but that is another story.

Anyway, I received this from Forest River today. I thought Thor was by far the largest manufacturer. Forest River says no. Who is telling the truth?


October motorhome retail registrations rose 11.1% compared to the same period a year ago while sales for the 10 months grew 15.1%.

According to the latest report by Statistical Surveys Inc. (SSI), Forest River Inc. was the motorized sales leader through October with a 26.6% market share, ahead of Thor Industries Inc. (25.2%) and Winnebago Industries Inc. (20%) share.

Class C registrations increased 13.6% in October and 19% for the 10 months. Forest River was the sales leader year-to-date with a 37.7% market share, followed by Thor (23.7%) and Winnebago (23.1%).

"Motorized" versus total? Also would need to know if based on dollars or number of units?

Maybe both are right.
