Mon Jul 3, 2017

CLEARWATER, Minnesota - The gleaming new campers and motorhomes rolling into the St. Cloud/Clearwater RV Park are as common as mosquitoes at a Minnesota cookout.

“These five are all brand new,” says Scott Shoen as he sits in the midst of the campground, turned new RV showroom.

Schoen and his friends are among those fueling record sales for the RV industry.

“I think seven of our friends bought new ones this year,” Schoen says as he points to a new fifth-wheel camper. “That one just got picked up at PleasureLand yesterday.”

It’s part of the trend that’s bringing nothing but happiness to PleasureLand’s sales manager Vinnie Binfeld, according to a story by KARE 11.com.
