Hipsters go Glamping and RV Makers Soar

"For anyone who has gotten stuck on a mountain road behind a massive recreational vehicle, get used to it, there are a lot more on the highway.

Recreational vehicles, ranging from bus-sized motor homes to retro trailers, have been a boom-and-bust industry since they first became popular in the early 1970s. Now a wave of retiring baby boomers and a surprisingly young new fan base have sent U.S. unit sales above their housing boom peak. Shares of the two leading manufacturers of RVs, Thor Industries THO -1.28% and smaller Winnebago Industries , WGO -1.37% each hit records last week."

Yep. "Camping" isn't quite as much fun as was a few years ago.

if you made $60 on the stock get out while the getting is good... pigs get slaughtered...

If you think they were making crappy RV's before just wait till this next round comes out.. making my used buy a good choice.. now the crowds will be crazy this summer...

It may be fun to have camper backup bloopers... Like boat ramp bloopers... good stuff!
