Increasing sales for the recreational vehicle industry had a number of its major players in northeast Indiana expanding production capacity this year, and the Indiana General Assembly took steps to support its continued growth in the state.

KPC News reported that the passage into law of an Indiana sales tax exemption for RV sales to out-of-state consumers was a highlight of the RV Indiana Council’s (RVIC) legislative efforts this year, according to Ron Breymier, its executive director. The exemption will be phased in over the course of two years.

“The industry greatly appreciates the role Indiana Senate President Pro Tempore David Long (R-Fort Wayne) played in pulling together RV industry leaders and legislators to legislatively help the industry to continue its growth of RV sales in Indiana due to this new exemption,” he said.

A bill grandfathering Tesla’s ability in the state to sell directly to the public while blocking other auto manufacturers from the practice of direct selling was passed into law. RVIC made certain the law will continue to protect the ability of Indiana’s RV manufacturers to sell directly to consumers.

Strong consumer demand for recreational vehicles was evident in the attraction of more than 36,000 interested consumers at the five RV shows produced by the association this year, Breymier said.
