18 • RV PRO • February 2019 rv-pro.com R V M A N U F A C T U R E R S gas is down a couple of percentage points, so it's relatively flat. In the luxury diesel category, it's down about 7 percent," Brady says. "We went through that big downturn and ever since that, we've been on such a tear that these numbers are out of this world, so even for it to be flat or a little down right now, it's still record numbers, relatively speaking. We expect, especially in the diesels, to see sales numbers probably stay flat to maybe a little down." Even so, Brady is impressed the industry remains steady and is confident things will continue to go Entegra's way. "In a flat market, we have grown as a company, just with what we're bringing to the table," he says. "There are dealers looking for something new – either to change or to add to their lot, but that's where we've picked up market share with Jayco and Entegra growing. It's just from opportunities that the dealer base has given us for them making a change. I still see us as a company prob- ably up around the 5 percent range over the next 12 months." Now that customers can join the Entegra family at a lower price point, Brady believes many will remain brand loyal and remain lifelong customers. "We all know that people who RV trade up," he says. Reatta is designed for RVers who want a luxury motorhome, but in a smaller footprint than Entegra's traditional diesel pusher offerings. The Reatta is built on the Spartan K1 raised-rail chassis with an independent front suspension and comes nicely equipped with a modern interior and plenty of high-end, residential-style features.
