RV Sales Hit Record Highs

Recreational vehicles (RVs) ranging from motor homes to retro trailers are experiencing a boom in purchases. A wave of retiring baby boomers and a surprisingly young fan base have sent the industry to a new peak. Young “glampers” tend to opt for the cheaper, towable vehicles while older adults are more likely to purchase motor homes. Two leading RV manufacturers, Thor Industries and Winnebago Industries, recently hit record highs. And, the industry is projecting a further jump next year. (Wall Street Journal, 12.2.17)
