U.S. Reps. Dennis Ross, R-Fla., and Jackie Walorski, R-Ind., have formed the Congressional Recreational Vehicle (RV) Caucus.

According to a Ross news release, the caucus was created to educate members of Congress on issues that impact the RV industry and highlight the importance of this American tradition for the tourism industry and the economy.

“As a young boy, I traveled the country in the summers with my grandparents in their 1960 Airstream, which I now have and have worked hard to restore to its original beauty. Now as an adult, my wife, Cindy, and I have taken our sons, Travis and Shane, on countless trips by motorhome, stopping in each of the 48 continental states,” said Ross. “The RV industry pumps billions of dollars into our economy and encourages families to take advantage of everything our great states have to offer. I’m glad to help start this important caucus that highlights the contributions of the RV industry.”

Added Walorski, “In Northern Indiana, Hoosiers are proud to be known as the 'RV Capital of the World' as this powerful industry continues to manufacture quality products, create jobs, and enrich American tourism,. With over 80% of North America’s recreational vehicles built in Elkhart and LaGrange counties, it is critical that this industry remains relevant and continues to produce new products and technologies for recreational vehicles. I am pleased to introduce this caucus alongside Rep. Ross to support the RV industry and ensure its prolonged success for the benefit of American families.”

All members of Congress are welcome to join the Congressional RV Caucus.
