RVIA: RVing is a Hot Topic in Summer Media

July 25, 2012 by   - () Leave a Comment

The public relations team at the Recreation Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA) is working with media nationwide to generate news stories delivering the message that RVing is a fun and affordable way for families to have a great outdoors experience.

RV-related reports have appeared in national and local media, and RVIA has been laying the groundwork for future stories that will appear in high-profile outlets in the months ahead, the association reported in a news release.

Some of the highlights from the summer months:

  • National Public Radio aired a story about a reporter’s eight-day trek through Oregon and California in a rented RV.
  • ABC World News Tonight broadcast a story about how RVing is becoming more popular with American families. RVIA worked extensively with producers on the story.
  • The Associated Press published a story about how RVers adapt to fluctuating gas prices. The report includes information from RVIA’s vacation cost comparison study, as well as a mention of new fuel-efficient motorhomes now on the market.
  • Financial Times reported on the RV industry’s continued growth in shipments despite a sluggish economy and jittery consumer confidence.
  • An story from a Today show contributor told how Americans love RVs for the “much-needed, uninterrupted family time.”

In addition to these stories in national outlets, RV stories have appeared in dozens of local media markets. For a more comprehensive look at RV media coverage, please visit RVIA’s online newsroom at
