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 .

Michigan May Give Rare Veto On Trade-In Law

Mon Aug 28, 2017

LANSING, MICH. - Gov. Rick Snyder's rejection of a speedier tax cut for people who trade in their car for a new one is provoking disappointed lawmakers to seriously consider something that has been done just three times in the last 66 years — a veto override.

A month ago, the Republican governor turned down legislation to accelerate the sales tax break. He cited "additional financial strain" for the state and said the bills conflicted with a previous compromise to phase in tax relief for those looking to offset the cost of an automobile or RV with a trade-in, according to a story by Sun Herald.

Now GOP leaders are weighing whether to enact the law anyway, a move that could complicate other legislative and gubernatorial initiatives in the final 16 months of Snyder's tenure. The legislation won bipartisan approval 37-0 in the Senate and 88-19 in the House, which is more than the two-thirds support legislators would need for an override.
