RVIA Economic Impact Study

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 .

Don't Forget RVIA Show Update in Elkhart Tomorrow

Wed Feb 28, 2018

“While it's been just a short month since the decision, the announcement has created quite the buzz across the industry and has resulted in much excitement around the idea of a totally new annual RV event,” says RVIA President Frank Hugelmeyer. “At the same time, the new direction has generated quite a few questions. To be honest, that is to be expected as there are many questions that still need answers.”

“One of the biggest questions is regarding the event location and dates, and our staff is currently investigating options that will be reviewed with RVIA's Tradeshow and Events Committee soon,” Hugelmeyer says. “In addition to speaking to our members, we have also reached out to key stakeholders and our partners in the dealer community. We've had a series of meetings with individual companies and dealer groups, and I will be presenting our vision to the RVDA board in March.”

RSVPs can be made today with Beverly Whitley at bwhitley@rvia.org.
