RV shipment momentum slows a bit

ELKHART, Ind. — The Virginia-based Recreational Vehicle Industry Association, which has an office in Elkhart, says total shipments ticked down in May, compared to the same month last year.

    Sold my RV last February due to its age and continuing maintenance. Miss the road and will probable be back on in the future. But as long as the manufactures continue to make staple and glue gun units, use cheap materials, electronics that no one can understand or repair, color designs that add considerable cost and quality control inspectors who have their head up their you know what I will continue to rent homes across the country. Then there’s cost of gas that has gone up, shortage of rv spaces for long term because of weekenders. Come to think of it I just convinced my self to put on hold buying a RV for awhile.
