Organizers are expecting their biggest crowds in years at the Florida RV Supershow this week thanks to lower fuel prices and a healthier economy.
“The industry itself is on a tremendous upward swing,” explained Florida RV Trade Association (FRVTA) Executive Director Lance Wilson.
According to a report by WFLA TV, Wilson says the shape of the RV industry is generally a good indicator of the economy.
“You don’t need an RV. You want one. So when you lose that discretionary income out of the economy, the RV industry suffers immediately,” Wilson explained.
After years of slow sales, dealers are now enjoying a quick comeback.
“The shipments are, right now, way ahead of record pace,” Wilson said.
More than 1,200 RVs are now on display at the fairgrounds from small popups to luxury motor coaches.
