Podcast 205 features RVDA’s Phil Ingrassia

This is an informative episode with guest Phil Ingrassia, the president of the RV Dealers Association.

The interview begins with a summary of what will happen at the RV Dealers Convention and Expo, slated to take place Nov. 5 to 8 in Las Vegas. Pre-registration is way up and the booth space for vendors is sold out.

New education tracks and a special super-lawyer panel to discuss legal liability promises to draw a considerable crowd this year.

Ingrassia also addresses the lending market for RV dealers and consumers, and waves off any signs of problems following the announcement a few days ago that shipments from manufacturers to dealers was down 12.5 percent in August. He outlines his theory behind the decline.

Finally, he will talk about legislative issues impacting the industry, the industry’s embrace of tech training, and how the industry will be impacted by hurricanes in the Carolinas and Florida where demand for emergency housing is high.
