The RVIA staff and several of the RVIA members met with former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, who suggested that the association "identify the most burdensome and stupid federal regulations that RV businesses have to deal with," according to the RVIA survey.

These regulations could be anything from the EPA to CFPB to OSHA. For example, motorhomes being regulated as commercial vehicles under greenhouse gas regulations, or the RV industry being swept into some of the of the early warning reporting requirements that are geared for the automotive industry.
