1. RVing Is Still a Popular Activity
Today, the RVing community continues to gain momentum as more and more people look for alternative ways to recreate, and to use these amazingly comfortable alternative housing options. In 2020-2022, when the pandemic limited travel and recreational activities, interest in RVing skyrocketed. People suddenly recognized that the new RV trends would give them the safe social distance they needed to protect themselves and to conform to government recommendations, but also allowed them some freedom from being locked up in their houses, plus they could continue to travel without boarding a plane or cruise ship.
A large inventory of RVers was available at the beginning of the pandemic but that inventory was quickly depleted and eventually long lists of back orders for many popular brands and styles delayed deliveries. Those back orders have been filled (and even though people now have more options to travel internationally) RV sales in the US continue at a brisk pace now that more people are aware of the joys and opportunities of traveling domestically in an RV. An industry survey confirms that over 25 million people plan to go camping in 2023 and a large percentage of them will be camping in RVs.
