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 .

How do you get away from it all when your RV literally has it all?
That’s not a dilemma that seems to bother many buyers these days. As new homes increasingly come with high-end furnishings and all manner of creature comforts, so too do recreational vehicles.
We’re talking multiple big-screen TVs, soaking tubs, clothes washers/dryers, touchscreen navigation and magnetic induction cooktops.
From 45-foot motorhomes to basic pop-up tent campers, more than 300 are packed into 10 buildings at the Spokane County Fairgrounds and parked outside for the 29th annual show, sponsored by The Spokesman-Review. Six dealers are displaying discounted models across 170,000 square feet of indoor space.
This is not just for dreamers and gawkers. Around 13,000 people are expected to attend, and those who buy will spend roughly $10 million for around 150 RVs, organizers say.
