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 .

Republican Senators Working to Abolish CFPB

Thu Feb 16, 2017

While there appear to be some in the Republican Party who simply want to reform the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, there are at least two Republicans on Capitol Hill who want to kill the agency altogether.

In recent weeks, the sharks began to circle the CFPB, as Republicans set their sights on changing the way the agency functions, including making significant changes to the CFPB’s leadership structure and eliminating the CFPB’s controversial complaint database, according to a story from the Housing Wire.

But those efforts pale in comparison to a pair of matching bills introduced Tuesday in the House of Representatives and the Senate, which would abolish the CFPB entirely.
