RV Industry Upturn Noted at Michigan Retail Show
Organizers of the 20th Annual Northwest Michigan Camper and RV Show said the event offered evidence that the RV industry is on the rebound in the state.
The show, hosted by the Michigan Association of Recreational Vehicles and Campgrounds (MARVAC), ran March 30-April 1 at the Grand Traverse County Civic Center in Traverse City.
As reported by the Leader and the Kalkaskian, MARVAC Director Bill Sheffer said that while the event saw average attendance in comparison to previous years, the popularity of the RV and camping industry is on the rise throughout Michigan and across the country.
Over 50 units and 15 brands of recreational vehicles from area dealerships were displayed at the event, giving attendees a good look at the wide range of products available.
“In 2011, RV sales were up 11.5% from the year before in Michigan,” Sheffer said.
