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 .

Keystone is unveiling dozens of new floorplans at RV Shows during the winter show season, many of which are completely never-before-seen models.
Here are five that have been drawing record crowds at shows. Included among each is a virtual 360-degree tour.
RV of the Year Finalist, this Outback features a patent-pending automotive front windshield, auto-leveling and one-of-a-kind front kitchen with wrap around dinette beneath the windshield. A rear fold-down exterior storage rack and BAL 7-point auto leveling system are also standard on this Outback.
Passport Ultra Lite 2520RL
You won't believe you can get all this in a easy-to-tow trailer that weighs less than 5,000 pounds. The trailer screams comfort and convenience and features a large bathroom and loads of storage. With this Passport, you can pack up and go on a moment's notice.
Alpine 3650 RL
This luxury fifth wheel has one of the coolest kitchens in the RV universe. With high-end Furrion appliances, your choice of 18 cubic-foot RV or Samsung refrigerator, dishwasher in the kitchen island and one-of-a-kind range hood, the kitchen of this Alpine can become a favorite hangout.
Enjoy the life-sized camping experience of this new Laredo travel trailer. The rear island kitchen offers a massive amount of storage and counter space. The DUAL refrigerators deliver a combined 16-cubic feet of cold space that can be used together or individually. This Laredo also features a King Bed, something not commonly found in a travel trailer. Outside, you'll enjoy a huge patio with two awnings and a 40-inch TV. Another bonus is that like all Laredos, this model offers One-Touch Auto leveling to make setup a breeze.
When Montana introduced the automotive front-windshield fifth wheel year one year ago, it earned RV of The Year accolades. This new front windshield model with a soaking tub in the front bath is equally as impressive.
