When will banks ever learn?

Yesterday we posted a story about how PNC Bank is intentionally attempting to destroy Carriage RV, a manufacturer with a long history of making quality products. One of the people posting a comment to that story said it just didn’t make sense for a bank to do so.

"I’m surprised so many here would buy into this nonsense so unquestioningly. Banks aren’t stupid," the commenter noted.

In that regard, he is correct. Banks are just buildings made of brick, wood, steel, gold, silver, ivory, topaz, marble and the blood of depositors. It is bankers that are stupid. You can always spot these guys from a mile away. They are the ones staggering through the hallways intoxicated by their own power as dutiful minions rush up to kiss their rings. They are like weird genetic mutations between a Roman Catholic cardinal and The Godfather.

I have made it clear before and I will restate it again – I will never let this industry forget how banks treated RV dealers, manufacturers and consumers at the onset of the recession. They are heartless, cruel, demanding and unfair. They will change a negotiated deal for no reason other than they want to.

ARVC makes a great move

Today, the National Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds announced it hired a new senior director of marketing. Based on Jennifer Shwartz' very unique qualifications, as outlined in the association's press release, she is one heck of a catch.

Not only is she an experienced outdoorswoman who sounds like she could go head-to-head with Sarah Palin in the Great Outdoors, she's an experienced camper who spends up to 30 days a year in the woods with her family. That makes Jennifer well suited to understand, appreciate and market camping to the rest of the nation.

According to RVIA, this is on par with the 23 percent rate in 2005 and ahead of the 16 percent rate in 2001.

Don't you just wish that this research would come true, if only for one year?

Independent vs. dealer-delivered service

My inbox has been buzzing today after we published a wire service story yesterday in which Richard Coon, president of the RV Industry Association, noted that 42 percent of RV owners get units repaired by independent service centers compared to 40 percent who turn to RV dealers to get units fixed.

Ignoring the fact that 18 percent of RV owners apparently don't ever need service, the issue of who services RVs has been the topic of discussion -- and consternation -- for years. And the issue generally boils down to this key fact. Many RV dealers tell customers if you don't buy your recreation vehicle from us, you cannot come to us for service.

Here are some other key points to consider as well
