    I've noticed that it is hard to find used Jayco pop ups. Does anyone know the back story? Did they sell out the pop up business to another company?

    Jayco is no longer a family owned business, is now owned by Thor ...

    Apparently popup production has been temporarily suspended but that would have nothing to do with the used market which Jayco has been part of for decades.

    Click to see jaco 2019 popup lineup: 2019 Jayco popup

    A few years ago Jaco or maybe it was thor the owner of Jaco bought Starcraft? But it does look like starcraft has dropped the popup line

    Starcraft RV for quite a few years now has been a wholly owned subsidiary of Jayco so when the Bontrager family sold Jayco to Thor Starcraft RV was part of the deal and is therefore now a Thor subsidiary.
