rvtravlogo_wimage_med2According to a survey in last weekend’s RVtravel.com newsletter, only about 8% of its readers are inclined to buy a new or used RV in 2011.

More than 1,400 RVers responded to the survey. Four percent said they would almost certainly buy, with another 4% saying there was a “good chance.”

Forty-nine percent of the respondents said they would definitely not buy in 2011, and another 34% said it was not likely they would buy. Ten percent said there was a 50-50 chance they would make a purchase.

The good news for the RV industry is that when RVtravel.com asked a similar question two years ago, only about 2% of the 1,800 respondents said they would definitely buy in 2009, with another 3.6% saying “most likely” — a total of about 30% fewer than in last weekend’s survey.

RVtravel.com has monitored the habits of RVers for more than seven years, providing a revealing picture of their buying and lifestyle habits. The website’s weekly newsletter edited by Chuck Woodbury is now in its 10th year of online publication with a monthly readership of approximately 300,000.
