(April 21, 2014) -- The Recreational Vehicle Industry Association estimates that an additional 2,000 drivers are needed to deliver 25,000 to 30,000 RVs sitting in lots.
SOUTH BEND, Ind. — Officials from the Recreation Vehicle Industry Association estimate that an additional 2,000 drivers are needed to deliver the 25,000 to 30,000 recreational vehicles that are sitting on lots in southern Michigan and northern Indiana, mostly in Elkhart County, according to South Bend Tribune.
The problem could cost the industry as much as $500 million in lost sales in 2014, according to South Bend Tribune.
Doug DeMeyer, a former driver who is now an owner of a transportation company that lines up drivers to transport RVs across the United States and Canada, believes the shortage won’t be solved quickly, South Bend Tribune reports.
