Jamie is considering adding a mid- range camper and expects that if she does so she can sell 1,500 of them. However, if the new camper is added, Jamie expects that her Class A sales will decline to 950 units while the Class C campers decline to 2,200. The sales of pop-ups will not be affected. Class A motor homes sell for an average of $125,000 each. Class C homes are priced at $39,500 and the pop-ups sell for $5,000 each. The new mid-range camper will sell for $47,900. What is the erosion cost? Erosion cost = [(1,000 - 950) ×$125,000] + [(2,500 - 2,200) ×$39,500] = $18,100,000Difficulty level: MediumTopic: Erosion Cost8-47
