Covid-19 pushed people to explore the great outdoors, which resulted in skyrocketing camper and RV sales. While things have cooled off, sales are still significantly higher than before the pandemic, according to CarScoops.

This has been great news for companies like Airstream, but everything isn’t rosy as CEO Bob Wheeler told us campground capacity has lagged behind the increase in demand.
