THOR'S DUTCHMEN CONTINUES TO DOMINATE TRAVEL TRAILER AND FIFTH WHEEL INDUSTRY WITH NO. 1 RANKING

 NEW YORK, March 31 /PRNewswire/ -- Thor Industries Inc. (NYSE: THO) announced today that its Dutchmen travel trailers and fifth wheels were once again the top brand, continuing to dominate this section of the recreational vehicle industry, according to January 1993 retail registrations reported by Statistical Surveys Inc.
 Four months ago Dutchmen first toppled Fleetwood's Prowler brand from its top position of more than a decade. Latest retail registrations confirm Dutchmen has solidified this position by achieving a 35 percent unit increase over least year, versus a drop of 14 percent for its nearest rival.
 "These retail figures demonstrate the consumers' confidence in Dutchmen's superior quality and value and we expect the year to continue with record sales," said Thor Chairman Wade F.B. Thompson.
 Thor is the second largest manufacturer of recreational vehicles and the largest builder of small and mid-size buses in North America.
