Reduced Seal Fee Will Go Into Effect on July 1
Beginning July 1, the cost of the Recreation Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA) seal for manufacturer members will decrease from $17 to $16 each.
The RVIA board authorized the seal price reduction at its meeting on March 4 during the association’s Annual Meeting. The new $16 seal fee will apply to all member manufacturer vehicle types. The Go RVing per unit assessment remains unchanged at the current levels of $46 for folding camping trailers and truck campers; $61 for travel trailers and fifth-wheel travel trailers; and $74 for motorhomes.
This marks the sixth decrease in the seal fee since it was temporarily raised to $35 in July 2009 by the RVIA board to address growing pressure on the association’s budget caused by the reduction in show and dues income caused by the downturn in the general economy. This action helped avoid further program cuts and severe service reductions that would have compromised RVIA’s mission to promote and protect the interest of the association’s membership and the RV industry.
