The deadline to complete the RV Rental Association (RVRA) survey gauging the current state of the rental market in terms of fleet size and makeup, consumer preferences and the impact of peer-to-peer rentals is Friday.
RVRA is asking dealers take a few minutes to complete a 21-question survey to assist in promoting RV rentals to media outlets and within the industry. The results will also be used to expand consumer understanding of RV rental travel options.
This online survey is being conducted through the RV Retailer Intelligence program, a service of the RV Assistance Corporation (RVAC) a wholly-owned subsidiary of RVDA. Individual responses will remain confidential.
An aggregate report on the results will be released this summer. No individual company responses will be released.
RVRA, a unit of RVDA, is a national association of companies that rent recreation vehicles to consumers. For results of last year's survey go to www.rvda.org
