As the summer wears on, a wide array of companies in the recreational vehicle business are finalizing plans for Elkhart County’s 5th Annual RV Open House Week, held in September throughout the northern Indiana RV-building zone of Elkhart and LaGrange counties. The Open House extends over much of the week, although Tuesday through Thursday (Sept. 18-20), will be the key days among the industry’s major exhibitors.

So, RVB’s staff and survey sponsor, Pender, Neb.-based Blue Ox, thought it might be timely to find out more about the level of the industry’s participation in this year’s Open House, especially given the debate that has surfaced within the industry nationally over trade show participation and whether there’s room on peoples’ agendas these days for all three trade events – RVIA’s National RV Trade Show in late November, RVDA’s Con/Expo in early October and  the upcoming Open House.

So, here’s our next RVB/Blue Ox All-Industry Survey Question:
