The biggest show of its kind in southern Missouri popped through the Ozarks this past weekend in Springfield, Mo.
Campers and RVs were on display for the 10th annual RV show and sale, according to KSFX-TV, Springfield.
Over the last year, salesmen say banks have tightened their lending practices.
Now, it takes some type of down payment to buy one of the vehicles. Sometimes it’s upwards of 20% for the bigger items.
RV leaders say that while the economy may be slow, sales keep rolling along.
“For the most part, people are still buying,” said Delbert Jamison of Crest Auto and RV Sales. “Your higher end items have maybe slowed down some, but we’re kind of seeing some of that even come back just a little bit.”
Organizers say the three-day-show is a great place for people to do their research on RVs.
They say this year they are seeing a more educated consumer.
