rvcanada0310According to a report from Go RVing Canada, RV vacations remain the most cost-effective form of travel for Canadians.

According to the study, which was conducted by PKF Consulting, typical RV vacations are up to 75 percent less expensive per day than any other type of family trip, regardless of trip duration, distance, or location.

To add another component of affordability, Go RVing Canada reports that RV prices are at an all time low.

“We are seeing increased activity and sales in our showrooms as the economy recovers,” says Go RVing Canada spokesperson Catherine Fortin LeFaivre. “So now is absolutely the right time to buy before prices start rising again.”

2rvia1127The $789 billion federal economic stimulus package signed into law in February, 2009, included a tax provision for motorhomes that is now set to expire as the year ends.

For the remainder of the calendar year, tax provisions under the stimulus package allow for sales and excise tax deductions for new purchases of qualified motor vehicles, including motorhomes. The deductions are attributable to taxes applying to the first $49,500 of the purchase price. Individuals with an adjusted gross income of up to $125,000 and joint filers with an adjusted gross income of up to $250,000 are eligible for the deduction.

When the calendar year ends on December 31, the tax credit will no longer apply.

RVIA’s 47th Annual National RV Trade Show brings 2010 product lines, thousands of industry officials and a renewed sense of optimism to the Kentucky Exposition Center (KEC) in Louisville, Dec. 1-3, 2009.

With pre-registration numbers for show attendees higher than last year’s numbers – and RV dealer pre-registration a full 15 percent higher than at this time last year, industry members are feeling positive as they head to the show, which comes on the heels of encouraging sales this fall at consumer shows across the country.

“This year’s show provides a rallying point for the RV industry as we start to recover from a historic recession,” says RVIA President Richard Coon. “And I’m glad to say that we have many reasons for optimism.  RV shipments are improving, Americans still love our products, and the forecast is for market growth in the upcoming year.  I think we will have a strong show that will help speed us along the road to recovery.”
