Many people went out to enjoy the sunshine at the opening day of the Spring Hall of Fame RV Show at the RV/MH Hall of Fame in Elkhart, Ind. It kicked off Thursday (April 26) morning and runs through Sunday.

WNDU reported that leaders in the RV industry say now is a great time to buy, as fierce competition amongst manufacturers is driving down prices and as interest rates remain low. Many families are taking the opportunity to buy and travel together.

Last year, over half a million units were shipped across the world, and it’s projected that even more will be shipped out this year.

“We’ve seen eight straight years of growth, we’ve head record numbers for the last couple years, and it looks like we’ll do it again for 2018,” said Matt Rose, director of recreation vehicles for the Indiana Manufactured Housing Association-Recreation Vehicle Indiana Council (IMHA-RVIC) which hosts the annual show.

“Right now, we’re seeing a pinnacle,” said Chad Rothrock, sales manager at Total Value RV. “The RV industry is hot. I think 50,000 units were shipped last month.”
