Well there is no reason why the auto makers are going to stop marketing
these. I believe Jeep makes something like $12K profit on every Grand
Cherokee. I'm sure the Expedition is about the same. Look for SUV's to
become even more "car" like. The next generation are going to be lower to
make access easier. So their goes the camping trip.
