In light of the formation of a company in China to build a Class A motorhome for the U.S. market, there is an interesting poll underway at rvlifestyleexperts.com about the impact Chinese-made RVs will have on the industry.

What do you think? Will Chinese-produced RVs affect U.S. quality in a positive way?

As of today (Sept. 27), the results were as follows:

  • Improve quality of US RVs–37%.
  • Decrease quality of US RVs– 35%.
  • No effect — 17.5%.
  • Other–leave comment –10%.

The blog did not identify the size of the sample.

    I expect Chinese RV’s will be greeted with the same enthusiasm shown for Chinese RV tires, Chinese drywall and Chinese pet food supplements.

    The Chinese automobile industry is waiting in the wings to become the new Korea in marketing and selling in the USA. Indications are that they do have good product.
    Their bus and truck chassis are sound.
    Their craftmanship has come along ways.
    So the problems facing the US RV market is not Chinese tires, drywall or pet food supplements…but price destruction.
    Since the Chinese will be required to follow DOT, RVIA and a multitude of other standards before they ship their units, they will need to be on target.
    Watch out, I’m not sure this is a great way to go for our existing manufacturers.
