RVs For Numerous Reasons

By Mike Johnson

Travel well.

Nothing beats rolling down the highway in your Winnebago. With your wife driving, your dog snuggled in to share your nap.

This dog has passed, this RV was sold. I'm still blessed with the wife. And the memories.

For the past ten years, RV manufacturers in America have sold over 500,000 units per year. 85% of sales are towables and 15% have motors. Sales were down 20% in 2019, a leading indicator of a shrinking economy. Then Covid hit. Sales are now up 40%.

Many of these buyers wanted a social-distanced vacation without the need for planes, hotels and restaurants.

More people are living in used RVs out of necessity. It's the cheapest form of housing and a giant step up from living in a car.

Some people keep an RV in the backyard as overflow housing for guests and homes for kids who return to the nest.

Most just use a RV a few weeks a year for recreation.

Over a million people purposely live full-time in their RVs. It's an economical, adventurous, fascinating lifestyle. New scenery, new discoveries and new learning as often as you want to move. The only thing holding more people back from that lifestyle is income. They haven't yet broken free from trading time for money at a specified location.

They'll be another used RV in our future. We see it as a portable, second home that can be safely stored in our barn when we're not traveling.

All these RVs are filling campgrounds to capacity, making campgrounds an attractive investment.
