The article forecasts the decline of work truck and trailer sales in 2007. Following the boom since 2004 due to buyers wanting to buy before tighter U.S. Environmental Protection Agency emissions regulations, there will be a downturn in 2007, according to National Truck Equipment Association director of market research and data Stephen Latin-Kasper. However, the downturn will be followed by another boom in 2008 and 2009, led by growing niches in the industry.
