That was the same with Fleetwood and Forest River when I bought my last coach. In that case it was probably 15:1 Fleetwood and 12:1 Forest River to Winnie in each. It could be the sales of Winnie do not rate with the sales volume of others. The only Thor models this dealer sells is fifth wheels.
At the dealer where I purchased my Thor the ratio is about 5:1 Forest River to Thor and at their competitor it is about 8:1 Tiffin to Thor.
When I started looking at Class As over a year ago my closest camping world only had 3 Thor coaches in stock and the those numbers held true at the 3 closest CW locations.
I just did an online search of the closest CW and the ratio at Class A is 1:1 Thor to Winnie and 5:4 Winnie to Thor at the Class C level.
I believe it is market driven and not the manufacturer pushing inventory on the dealers.
