At the National RV Trade Show in Louisville, Kentucky earlier this month, RVIA President Frank Hugelmeyer and RVIA Chairman of the Board Bob Parish kicked off the show with insights on the current state of the industry and what a new administration in the White House could mean for the industry going forward.
The RVIA released a video to revisit the Outlook 2017 program, which also featured keynote speaker Captain Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger, who successfully piloted a doomed aircraft onto the Hudson River, saving all of the lives on board.
