With production shuttered due to the pandemic, Wall Street was expecting some dire results from the RV company Thor Industries.

As it turns out, being locked in has a lot of people thinking about hitting the road.

Not only did Thor avoid losses as most industry analysts had expected, it posted sales of $1.68 billion. Profit and revenues fell sharply, but shares rose sharply on the performance Monday.

Martin also said people are buying RVs as a second office.
