IDAHO FALLS, Idaho — With RVs already in the driveways of many homes in eastern Idaho, one would think the local market is already saturated and sales at local RV dealerships would have slowed.
But in fact, the opposite is true — RV sales are growing in eastern Idaho and local dealers say 2017 looks to be a good year.
John Hollist, a sales representative at Smith RV, said as local residents grow up taking trips in their parents’ RVs, naturally they want to buy their own RV when they have their own families. He said for many it’s about having a certain type of lifestyle, according to a story by East Idaho News.
