Not since RVBusiness and Blue Ox launched “RVB’s All-Industry Survey” a couple of months ago have we seen the opinion poll so perfectly split on what in this case is an interesting question regarding the rest of 2012 and beyond.

The exact question we posed nearly two weeks ago and that is still live on the right-hand side of the home page is as follows:

The buzz in some RV industry circles right now is that a rather impressive upturn may be at hand for 2012, despite mixed news reports on the U.S. economy. So, we’re asking you, North America’s RV sector, whether you think a more significant recovery is under way than you might have thought a few months ago?

• Yes

• No


As we head into the home stretch on this round of the survey and prepare to replace it next week with a new question, again, the vote is almost evenly split between the 38.7% who said “yes” and the 39.6% who answered “no,” while a significant 21.7% answered with a “maybe” response.

Bottom line, you can still affect the outcome of this latest survey round by submitting your opinion – and you can monitor the results in the process — by clicking on the Blue Ox survey banner on the right side of’s home page.
