RVing Economic Impact Facts:
- According to a new University of Michigan study commissioned by RVIA, nearly one in 12 U.S. vehicle-owning households now owns an RV. That’s nearly eight million households — a 15 percent increase over the past four years and a 58 percent gain since 1980.
- Based on the latest RV buying trends, by 2010, RVs will be owned by 8.5 million households.
- On average RV travelers spend about $91 per night in the community local to their chosen campground on gasoline, goods and groceries, according to the Recreation Industries Research Center at Michigan State University.
