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 .

The New England Recreation Vehicle Dealers Association has announced that April is RV month in New England and the association is running a contest.
To celebrate April RV month, NERVDA is giving away $500 toward any product or service at any NERVDA Dealer/Member in New England. The contest runs for the month of April and the winner will be chosen May 1.
Throughout April, people will see:
-An increase in dealer and member promotional activity on the NERVDA website and the Facebook page.
-There will also be several newsletters published to let people know of special events, dealer open houses and interesting news about NERVDA dealers and associate members.
The idea for this promotional activity came from one of the association's most committed and supportive dealers, Scott Silva. Silva owns Cold Springs RV in Weare, New Hampshire. During a recent visit to his dealership, the association saw the great success of the Boston RV & Camping Expo in January. Silva suggested a campaign similar to what is seen from car dealers, like the "Ford Dealers of New England" or your "Boston Area Chevy Dealers."
