THOR'S DUTCHMEN BECOMES NO. 1 TRAVEL TRAILER & FIFTH WHEEL MANUFACTURER

 JACKSON CENTER, Ohio, Jan. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Thor Industries Inc. (NYSE: THO) announced today that its Dutchmen travel trailer and fifth wheel division became the top selling brand in October 1992, according to the Retail Registration Report just issued by Statistical Surveys Inc.
 Dutchmen outsold Fleetwood's Prowler brand by more than 100 units or 16 percent in the month and achieved a market share of 11.7 percent. This is the first time in more than a decade that Prowler has been displaced as the top selling brand.
 "Dutchmen retail sales of travel trailers and fifth wheels are up 45 percent for the 10 months ended October 1992, more than double the industry increase of 21 percent," said Thor Chairman Wade F.B. Thompson. "This No. 1 ranking is a significant achievement and is due to the superior quality and value to the consumer of all Dutchmen products," he added.
 Thor is the second largest manufacturer of recreational vehicles and the largest builder of small and mid-size buses in North America.
