Go RVing Canada Touts 21% RV Sales Rise
Go RVing Canada has reported that annual RV sales figureswere up an impressive 21% across the country for 2010.
A record number of Canadian families are discovering the fun and flexible travel that the RV lifestyle provides, and are taking advantage of continued affordability in the marketplace, the Canadian coalition reported.
“Not only are sales up 21% so far this year over 2009, but total retail sales at RV dealerships in Canada have surged close to pre-recession levels. This represents a very strong result for an industry coming out of one of the worst economic downturns in memory,” Go RVing Canada continued.
“This has been an incredible year for RVing in Canada, particularly coming out of such a turbulent period for the Canadian economy,” said Go RVing Canada spokesperson Alana Fontaine. “More and more Canadians are discovering the fun, freedom and flexibility that an RV vacation provides, and this is why we’ve moved close to pre-recession sales levels across the country.”
While consumer prices in most other industries have been on the increase since the end of the recession, RV purchase prices have remained stable at the record-low levels consumers have been enjoying for several years, due largely to the strength of the Canadian dollar.
“Today’s economic climate may be on the road to recovery, but Canadians are still looking for affordable travel options,” continued Fontaine. “RV vacations represent an extremely economical way for families to travel”.
