Midwest RV Show Gets Rolling at RV/MH Hall
The hustle and bustle of daily life is not hurting RV sales any. That’s the belief of several people at Thursday’s (Aug. 7) opening of the 59th annual Midwest RV Super Show, which runs through Sunday at the RV/MH Hall of Fame grounds in Elkhart, Ind.
“Our lives have become so busy that people are looking for any opportunity that they can take to get out and get away from home and enjoy themselves,” Matt Rose, director of recreation vehicles for the host Indiana Manufactured Housing Association-Recreation Vehicle Indiana Council (IMHA-RVIC). “More and more people are realizing how affordable and how flexible travel can be in an RV.”
As reported by the South Bend Tribune, 30 straight months of increased RV shipments over the same month the previous year support that claim as does the torrid pace through the first six months of the year.
But so do the campers who attended the first day of the show, amid sunny skies and hundreds of new recreational vehicles, including many 2015 models.
April Woltman and her husband, Dick, who live just west of Chicago, were looking over a few.
“We all live in cities and we would like to get away from it once in a while,” said Dick. “People just enjoy getting back to nature, and you’re not plugged in.”
