(Sept. 11, 2012) — The situation with RV’s is the same as with real estate. It is difficult today to get a loan (that’s “firepower”) if you have a bad credit history. That’s truer today than it has been for the last 30 years. The last four years have thinned the herd. Consumers who really didn’t have the staying power, the stability and ability to make steady payments even in difficult times, have lost their homes and their motorhomes. Some lenders have exited the business too. Healthy lenders, including finance companies, banks and credit unions, returned to the market as soon as it stabilized. It’s ironic that when the banks were telling me that my applicants “didn’t have the liquidity and qualifications” for RV loans, my clients had better financial health than the banks.
(Sept. 5, 2012) — The blood (fines) are in the water, and many state agencies in many states are now beginning to watch what the harbingers are accomplishing. It would be foolish to believe that in these times when states are searching for new revenue sources that the fines that agencies can so easily levy for those not complying with the anti money laundering requirements would go unnoticed even in the “Red states.”
(Aug. 24, 2012) — Pay plans in the RV industry are intended to compensate employees in three ways. They reward employees for time spent on the job. They reward staff for expended effort, and they reward employees for producing results. Those three modes of compensation apply in both traditional and innovative compensation plans. Let’s take a look at general types of pay plans and then visit some other compensation possibilities.

Our goal is to provide each of our customers with an extraordinary sales and service experience and to achieve that goal, we must find additional employees to fill a variety of positions,” said Walters. “In addition, we have some expansion plans underway and we need to fill positions so that those employees can be fully trained prior to new stores opening.”

(Aug. 14, 2012) — Candidates with advanced diagnostic and repair skills for RVs or someone who is passionate about fixing mechanical, plumbing, electrical, and maintenance problems would be ideal.

A friend of mine told me yesterday that he thought Google’s Chrome web browser was the most popular in the world. I didn’t believe him. I was convinced that Microsoft’s Internet Explorer was still No. 1. After all, that’s the one I have used almost exclusively since 1995 — cursing at it throughout the day for its multiple limitations and ability to lock up on certain websites.
Today, I checked several web resources and was stunned to discover that not only has Internet Explorer lost its perch on top of the browser battles, it is solidly in third place and plummeting like a meteor.
Gasoline engines were the motorhome industry standard for decades, and it was only about five years ago, in 2007, that diesel RV chassis sales surpassed their gasoline counterparts. And while it’s true that gasoline engines have seen some recent resurgence in the market, there are several reasons why diesel remains the better value and more oft-chosen option.
About a month ago, Good Sam Enterprises, which owns Camping World, announced a plan to buy back up to $4.95 million in bond notes. However, by the time the offer expired July 31, only $4,000 worth of bonds were presented to the company.
To me, that shows pretty good confidence in the direction and stability of the company. If someone was worried about losing money invested in Good Sam Enterprises, here was an opportunity to get out with all the investment intact.
