Buyer’s interest increases for RVs and fifth wheel campers. As the recession is slowly fading away, RV dealerships are reporting an increase in sales for the first quarter of 2010. Across the nation, consumers appear to be spending again and not just on small items. RVs, travel trailers and fifth wheel campers are all showing the recession may be behind us.
The Recreational Vehicle Industry Association published the results of Dr. Richard Curtain’s forecast for the coming years in regards to RV sales. What he found was an increase over last year by 39% and the probability of 249,700 shipments during 2010. His forecast came as a welcome announcement to the RV Industry that is only beginning to expand operations after many businesses laid off employees last year.
Unlike previous recessions, where the road to recovery was relatively fast and stayed steady, Curtain warns the next several years will most likely see ups and downs. However as consumer confidence returns, they are beginning to purchase more expensive items such as RVs, travel trailers and fifth wheel campers. With a new generation entering the market, travel trailer sales have spiked.
An increase in sales in Class A RVs and fifth wheel campers portends good news for the RV Industry. When high-end vehicles sell, this indicates consumer confidence in the economy is returning. RVing has always been a popular mode of travel and vacationing, however this year, the perception of the industry had a little help with GoRVing’s Ambassadors of Affordability. The cuddly critters got out the message that RVing is more affordable than traditional travel and builds strong family values. The Ambassadors hit home with a wide range of audiences. The commercials were aired during the Olympics and NASCAR.
Class A RVs are the most expensive RVs on the market as they embody top-of-the-line luxury features. They can be had for prices that vary between $100,000 and $2,000,000. Fortunately there are RVs for all income brackets with travel trailers selling for less than $20,000 and fifth wheel campers running the middle of the road around $50,000.
There are a variety of ways to travel – air, car, train, but few allow for the comforts of home like RVing does. A favorite pillow, or certain foods and drinks can be stocked up without worrying about airport security confiscating them. Feel free to bring the full size bottle of shampoo, or toothpaste to last the entire trip. No more paying $20.00 for a bottle of suntan lotion at an exclusive resort. In an RV, you can stop at a grocery store and buy supplies for a reasonable price.
Most people became familiar with the RV lifestyle as kids when their parents used to take them on summer vacations in the RV. RV travel lets people experience some of the United States’ greatest treasures including National and State Parks, undeveloped wilderness, carnival attractions, fairs and more. For baby boomers, the idea of summering in the south and wintering in the north can become a reality by loading up the RV.
It’s easy to feel the spirit of the road upon you. Simply buy an RV, load it up with fishing rods, golf clubs, knitting, hiking gear, climbing gear and more. Gas up and drive. It’s as simple as that.
