The sales of recreational vehicles don’t seem to have been slowed by the sluggish economy, according to a report by The Republican, Springfield, Mass.

So it would seem that there probably will be no dip in attendance at this year’s Springfield RV, Camping and Outdoor Show, which opens Friday and continues through Monday at the Eastern States Exposition grounds in West Springfield. The event typically draws more than 35,000 attendees each year.

Suzanne White, who is serving as co-chair of this year’s show, also said the steep price of gasoline doesn’t seem to have slowed RV sales down.

“I believe the thinking is that if you can afford an RV, a few extra dollars in gas isn’t going to stop you from buying one,” she said.

Another series of seminars will be presented by RV industry professional Chris Dougherty, who has been around RVs most of his life. Chris is an RVDA/RVIA Certified RV Technician, an RV industry writer and freelance journalist. Dougherty will review all the different types of RVs, price ranges, types of floorplans, and the pros and cons of each. He will also discuss some features like sizes, options, equipment, tow and towed vehicles, seasonal or destination camping, and more.
