RV dealers talk shop

Dealers talk shop outside of Heartland’s Shadow Cruiser RV display in September.

SOUTH BEND — Several RV makers are accusing a Canadian import broker of inflating currency exchange rates and overcharging them by millions of dollars.

The five companies say in a lawsuit against Winnipeg-based Frontier Supply Chain Solutions Inc. that the customs broker and consultant fraudulently bilked them out of millions of dollars. They claim the company also gave them bad advice on the Canadian goods and services tax, leading to tens of millions of dollars in tax reassessments by the Canada Revenue Agency.

Hmmm...the largest RV manufacturer in the world gets "bilked"! I'd hate to be the business manager.


I think the legal dept may be in some hot water also.


I would not wat to be in legal department either. Sounds like somebody did no due diligence.


The fact that you CAN be bilked out of millions of dollars and still be in business, just shows how much these businesses are profiting every day ..Think about that !


I would rather think about the good paying jobs these companies produce and all the money the owners selflessly give to local charities. How about that?


Think about what? Thor employs over 23,000 people worldwide! The company is public and valued north of $4.5 billion. Think about THAT.
