A number of our larger dealers are late with their reports this month, so as of the 18th we’ve received 80% of our expected dealer sales data. Currently, retail sales per rooftop stand at 6.2 – a 0.1 increase over last month, and identical to October, 2013. However, our larger dealers generally sell more trucks per rooftop than average, so once we collect all of their data we expect this figure to rise a tenth or two. As such, we are predicting that October was a fairly strong month for sales – perhaps equal to March, at 6.3 – which would make it the second-best this year. See graph below for detail.

Stay tuned for October’s pricing results early next week.
