Today (Feb. 24) marked the opening of the Ontario Recreation Vehicle Dealers Association’s (ORVDA) all new Toronto International RV Show, formerly known as the Motor Home & Trailer Show, at the International Center, auto123.com reported.
Attendance is expected to be record breaking due to the increase in annual RV sales figures, demonstrating that sales are up an impressive 18.4% across the country for 2010.
Go RVing Canada has also recently revealed that total retail sales at RV dealerships in Canada have bounced back to pre-recession levels. This represents a very strong outcome for an industry coming out of one of the worst economic downturns in recent history.
RV purchase prices have remained stable at the record-low levels, due largely to the strength of the Canadian dollar. “Today’s economic climate may be on the road to recovery, but Canadians are still looking for affordable travel options,” said Go RVing Canada spokesperson Angèle Lapointe. “RV vacations represent an extremely economical way for families to travel.”
The Toronto International RV Show is under new management. The show boasts all types of RVs from campers, to travel trailers, motorhomes and park models and runs through Sunday. Other attractions include RV info seminars, an accessory and parts superstore and entertainment for all ages.
