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 .

Last year inTech entered the RV industry from the motorsports industry with the development of the Flyer - a line of lightweight adventure trailers that were simple in design, yet rugged for real world use. The Flyer’s all-aluminum, all-tube, fully welded cage frame was different than any other micro-lite on the market, and has been met with interest from tent campers and outdoor enthusiasts.
Rich Schnippel, who heads up the inTech’s RV division, has announced that inTech RV is going to be unveiling what he calls “the next generation” of ultra lightweight, the Luna.
“The Luna is different than anything the ultra lightweight market has ever seen before,” Schnippel says. “We’re not reinventing the wheel or anything, we’re more or less just perfecting it. I had spoken with a lot of people at different RV shows that explained the typical teardrop trailer was just too confining, so we came up with a better mouse trap…it was that simple.”
inTech’s Luna features all-aluminum cage construction, a full fiberglass front cap with a wrap-around tempered glass windshield and stylish fenders and rear bumper – providing a look and feel of a 21st Century trailer. The unique exterior profile provides this micro-sized camper with a much larger interior feel, while the massive front windshield and two 48-inch wide windows on each side of the camper allows campers to feel connected to the outdoors.
The Luna is loaded with features and options. Available features include Dexter Torsion Axles, 10,500 BTU Basement A/C with Heat Pump, 40-inch LED TV, AM/FM/CD/DVD, 3-Burner Gourmet LP Stove, Stainless Steel Microwave Oven, 12V/120V Refrigerator, LED Lighting, Aluminum Wheels, Enclosed LP Compartment, Frameless Windows and more.
inTech will be debuting the Luna at the upcoming Elkhart RV Open House in September at the RV Hall-of-Fame Complex.
“inTech gives our dealers a larger protected territory than they’re used to receiving from other manufacturers,” Schnippel says. “Our customers are willing to travel to see our trailers and we’re not looking to put a dealer on every corner, we believe that devalues the exclusiveness of our product.”
