RV Sales in Canada up 21% in 2010
According to a release from Go RVing Canada, RV sales figures are up 21 percent across the country in 2010.
Also of note, Go RVing Canada says that total retail sales at RV dealerships in Canada have surged close to pre-recession levels.
“This has been an incredible year for RVing in Canada, particularly coming out of such a turbulent period for the Canadian economy,” says Go RVing Canada spokesperson Alana Fontaine. “More and more Canadians are discovering the fun, freedom and flexibility that an RV vacation provides, and this is why we’ve moved close to pre-recession sales levels across the country.”
Explaining the surge in RV sales, Go RVing Canda says that while consumer prices in most other industries have been on the increase since the end of the recession, RV purchase prices have remained stable at the record-low levels consumers have been enjoying for several years, 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,” says Fontaine. “RV vacations represent an extremely economical way for families to travel.”
