It is interesting information but I am curious as to what has led to the decrease in sales – is this because they are purchasing other types of RVs? Is the RV industry as a whole selling less RVs? Anyone know the answers?

Sales are down as America is back in recession (at best). The nation is broke due to government spending and burden is crushing citizens economically. The greatest burden is the $1.2 trillion war and empire budget. Until the wars and worldwide occupation are stopped, nothing will recover. It is that simple. Come home, America.
