The article reports on the 10 percent decline in the market of the horse trailer manufacturing industry and the unaffected sales of living quarters (LQ), despite the economic downturn of the U.S. According to Jeremy Brahm, LQ are still selling well and that people with money to spend for LQ will still spend it. The demand for smaller LQ trailers will reportedly increase as children leave home, thus, will decrease the number of horses requiring transportation.
