MARVAC reports camping and RV interest is high.

With Michigan’s fall color change well under way and the weather slowly cooling down, the nearly 12,000 attendees at the Michigan Association of Recreation Vehicles and Campgrounds (MARVAC) Fall Detroit Camper & RV Show proved the camping and RV season isn’t over. The event ran Oct. 2-6 at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi

According to a press release, it’s been a strong year for the recreation vehicle and campground industries in the state, with consumer show attendance, campground reservations and unit sales on the rise.

Norm Wells, manager of National RV in Belleville, stated, “Our sales at this Fall Camper & RV Show were the best we’ve had, and the response has been phenomenal with interest in so many different types of units. With continued consumer confidence, we are excited to see what 2014 has in store.”

Beth Horan, manager of South Haven Sunny Brook RV Resort, has seen a significant increase in reservations for 2013. “We were completely booked from the end of June through Labor Day with families interested in our nightly, weekly and monthly stay options,” she said. “Some families even chose to purchase sites to enjoy for a lifetime.”

The RV industry is surpassing shipment predictions for 2013, and the expectations for 2014 are to continue this upward trend.
