OAKBROOK TERRACE, Ill. — Following yesterday’s announcement that the RV Aftermarket Association would be acquired by the RV Industry Association, RVAA President Susan Carpenter outlined details of the proposal to RV Pro.
“RVIA’s strategic plans and initiatives really speak volumes to what the RVAA board was looking to do in our own plans that we had set forth,” said Carpenter.
“There are certain approaches and understandings that the RVAA has felt important, and it’s something the RVIA in its recent years of rising presence has been able to make large strides in,” said “Education, statistical data, legislative issues – there’s been a lot more things (RVAA) would like to execute. But without the correct resources, we can’t execute them as well as RVIA already has.”
Now RVAA members will be able to fit into “the legislative arm of the RVIA for issues that plague” them, she explained. That includes involvement with the Go RVing coalition and taking advantage, she said, of RVIA’s statistical data and educational programs.
