The Recreation Vehicle Industry Association commissioned an Economic Impact Study on the RV industry, released on June 7, 2016. The study found that the RV industry contributes about $49.7 billion in economic output or 0.28 percent of the Gross Domestic Product. Through its production and distribution linkages, the industry impacts firms in 426 of the 440 sectors of the United States economy.
Nationwide, the industry is responsible for 216,170 jobs, both directly and inderectly, creating an economic impact of $37.5 billion. The full study results, along with each individual state and congressional district's economic impact is available on the website by clicking here .

The Yosemite National Park website gives would-be campers advice that should only boost business for the Memphis-based luxury campground company called RVC Outdoor Destinations.
"Be aware that nearly all reservations for the months of May through September and for some other weekends are filled the first day they become available, usually within seconds or minutes after 7 a.m.," the park warns.
Yosemite's popularity -- the rugged park in California draws more than 4 million visitors a year -- is why RVC Outdoor last year bought and started a multimillion-dollar redevelopment of a distressed commercial campground 20 miles outside the park's busiest entrance.
