Economy doesn’t dictate fun

(Oct. 15, 2014) -- Wayne Parker in RV sales noticed that family fun and recreation isn't taking a back seat to this latest dip in the economic indicators that have folks in other industries concerned.

BILOXI, Miss. — There’s no denying it there are some beautiful boats and RVs out at the boat and RV show at the coliseum in Miss., but it’s no secret that they fit squarely into the category of big ticket items and large purchases, according to WLOX.

Wayne Parker is in RV sales and said, “We still have just as strong a business now as it was back when the economy was good.”

Keith King sells boats and explained to WLOX, “What we’re seeing here recently with the interest rate drops, we’ve seen an awful lot of activity even in the larger boats, we do a brokerage operation too and we’re selling quite a few boats in the last thirty days.”

It seems that family fun and recreation isn’t taking a back seat to this latest dip in the economic indicators. Wayne Parker told WLOX, “It’s one of those leisure things, it’s not a need it’s a want and if they want it bad enough they can certainly afford it.”
