RV Sales Surging

https://www.foxbusiness.com/lifestyl...ockdown-orders

Opposite what most people were predicting.

From the article: "RVs, which can easily provide temporary housing for families to self-isolate, according to LCI Industries' CEO Jason Lippert. LCI Industries is a subsidiary of Lippert Components Inc., which supplies highly engineered components for the leading original equipment manufacturers in the recreation and transportation product markets."


I cannot help but chuckle at that statement.

Surging to what?

There were no numbers or sales data in the article.

Maybe not...
RV industry's return to peak sales to be 'slow and bumpy' amid COVID-driven economy

The number of RV shipments will likely bottom out in the second quarter that started this month, but there could be slow increases by the third or fourth quarters. Shipments this year won’t match 2019 levels, and he sees the numbers for 2021 being higher than 2020.

Or both. With the factories closed the current inventory may sell quickly then a drop until supply meets demand.

I wouldn’t put any stock in this “story,” which is one of the worst pieces of reporting I’ve seen. A self-serving quote by Lippert’s CEO with no numbers and an IG post by Miranda Lambert does not provide much factual evidence of a surge. I find it hard to believe a family that was planning a plane trip-hotel vacation is suddenly going to buy a trailer (and possibly a pickup) and all that is necessary for RVing just to take a vacation. And that’s if they didn’t lose their jobs from this horrible crisis.

I understand your feelings on the story and, while there might not be many of us, my family falls squarely into the category of cancelling a traditional family vacation in favor of an RV. I've never slept even one night in a travel trailer in my life, but I bought one today and am here learning. (And you got my first post here )

I called the dealer this week to schedule some warranty work. The service writer was telling me how surprisingly swamped they were. Even though things here are slow to open and people have been out of work, everyone seems to be RVing and trying to get their RVs in the shop before Memorial Day trips. They’ve also been doing multiple new unit deliveries daily.

Congrats and welcome to JOF! I hope you enjoy RVing as much as we have. Even that isn’t a silver bullet, at least not for us this year. We likely will be canceling a three-week trip to Yellowstone and other areas because of the mandatory Montana quarantine. Oh well.

Thanks! This place looks like a great resource and I'm going to need a lot of help . I'm totally out of my comfort zone with this purchase, but the whole family is really excited.

Yeah, I've still got to figure out where we can and can't go this summer. I think that will be a moving target. Luckily for us, many of the campgrounds here in Northern California started re-opening this weekend, if all else fails.

There's a whole bunch of help here, and you're not ever alone. We've all been new to this adventure, and had (still do) questions.

One great way to break into the experience, is what we call Camp Driveway. That makes sure you're close to home if you need it. We look forward to your questions.

I’d recommend your first trip be a night or two at JGW in Anderson. It’s close to home (and Walmart) and a great place for a shakedown “cruise.” Also next door to the Jayco dealer if that’s where you bought yours too in case you really have a problem.

Thanks for the insight. Sorry for the lack of acronym knowledge, but what's JGW?

It’s the RV park along the river. Nice close place for a “get-acquainted” trip. https://jgwrvpark.com/

gshoe10 Welcome to the forum from S.Oregon. gshoe10 there is a lot of help on this site. We bought our Jayco at the fairgrounds here and needed some warranty work done. We took it to Jayco in Redding. Is the dealer you are talking about next to camping world? That is where we had the work done. It only took them a few hours to get the furnace fixed. After that we stayed in a private RV park in a Cottonwood housing development that my sister-in-law lives in. This has been a three years ago. The RV park is for the people who live in the housing development and their family/friends that are visiting. I think it was $30.00 a night with full hookups at that time. You might want to check into getting into that RV park also if you know someone who lives in there. If that one is opening. Sorry for high jacking this thread.

I don.t know about sales , but this cronoa should make people think about self reliance,
And that's what rving is alot about.
nothing like having you own bed ,bath, cafe , with you every where you go.
I almost forgot welcome to the forum.
