Recently released data from Go RVing Canada on provincial sales in 2010 showed that Saskatchewan was the leader in RV purchases on a per capita basis. In addition, residents of the province were almost three times more likely to purchase an RV in 2010 than Canadians in other provinces.
Go RVing Canada said that “the numbers clearly demonstrate that Canadians are taking advantage of continued affordability in the marketplace and discovering the fun, freedom and flexibility that an RV vacation provides.”
“This highlights the degree to which Saskatchewan has become a leading destination for RVers of all ages,” said Go RVing Canada spokeswoman Alana Fontaine. “More and more Canadians all over the country are discovering the fun and flexible travel options that RVing provides, and the best part is, it is extremely affordable.”
Earlier this year, Go RVing Canada released provincial sales data for Saskatchewan and the month of March 2011, demonstrating that RV sales in the province jumped an impressive 19.3% this year over last. While consumer prices in most other industries have been on the increase in recent months with relatively high inflation, RV purchase prices have remained stable at the record-low levels consumers have been enjoying for several years.
“Affordability drives demand and RV prices have never been better for Canadian families looking to experience the RV lifestyle without breaking the bank,” said Fontaine.
