Just read an industry trade mag and guess how many new units were sold in 2020?

310,000 units for... 47 billion combined revenue from the sector... sales, service, & accessories

up 20% from the previous year... plandemic

The RV industry is similar. I dont know the exact numbers but sales are WAY up as an RV represents one of the best and safest ways for a family to vacation amid Covid 19
I have a friend that has 3 rental RVs... crazy.

The wife mentioned an RV a few months back for that very reason. Shocked the hell out of me as she's just not the type to be buying the kinda stuff. Told her the only way I would ever even consider it is if she learned how to drive one. So basically, it ain't happening. (her Subaru Crosstrek is the biggest thing she's ever driven, lol)

We put our 2014 aljo 18.5 single axle with a slide out up for sale around june.
Nice little lightweight trailer, put it up for 10g's, sold to the first person who looked at it for 10😯 Bought it from a dealer in 2016 for $10,500👍🏻
A week later bought a 23ft toyhauler that was much better built for 11k.
Everyone was looking for suv or light truck towable travel trailers.

The same thing is true for Toy Haulers, ATV's, Dirt Bikes, Motorcycles, 20' + Enclosed Trailers, HD Trucks .... anything "adventure" related is flying off the shelves due to Covid.

Boat mfg's here in Daytona area can't hire enough boat builders. Some must be doing well in this economy.
