The article reports that Class 8 trailer orders increased by 1% in October 2007 over the same period in 2006 in the U.S. However, orders in September 2007 were down by 27% compared to year-over-year period in 2006. Bear Stearns think that the increase in October was due to seasonal order patterns. However, it still believes that the result is encouraging, especially in the Class 5-7 category.
