Foreign RV makers expand in China

(Sept. 25, 2013) -- The Trentonian reports that as more Chinese embrace automobile culture, foreign RV makers are expanding in China. Winnebago Industries began working in 2011 with dealers in Beijing and several other cities, selling models ranging from 200,000 yuan ($33,000) to 2 million yuan ($327,000).

BEIJING, China — While stuck in traffic on the Beijing-Shanghai Expressway last year, Yin Ximin decided he’d been smart to buy a recreational vehicle, writes The Trentonian.

“Women were so desperate they had their friends or family shield them so they could urinate on the side of the road,” said Yin. “An RV makes long trips less painful. We can lounge around, have drinks, listen to music — and use the bathroom.”

Yin, who owns an advertising firm in Beijing, uses his 19-foot motorhome from manufacturer Shandong Dream Trip RV to fetch clients from the airport and schmooze on the way back into the city, says The Trentonian.

Thor Industries, the Elkhart, Ind.-based owner of the Airstream brand, started selling its distinctive silver camping trailers from a Beijing dealership in March, writes The Trentonian.
