RVIA President and CEO Craig Kirby recognized the upcoming U.S. Thanksgiving holiday with a message to association members today.
Kirby said he is grateful for everything RVIA members and the RV industry do to support millions of RVers enjoying the great outdoors.
“With Thanksgiving upon us and the holiday season about to be in full swing, I wanted to send a note of thanks to our membership and the industry for all that you do to bring joy and build lasting memories for our RVing family,” Kirby said. “This summer, I had the pleasure of taking an RV trip with my family from Virginia to California. It was incredible…and what really made it special were the wonderful experiences we enjoyed together.”
Watching other RVers enjoying shared experiences while traveling is also special, he said.
A survey released by RVIA last week showed that over 15 million Americans plan to travel in RVs between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Eve.
“That is an astonishing number. Spending time with family and friends is an integral part of the holiday season, and whether RVing for a family vacation or traveling by RV for a holiday visit, these moments together form lasting memories,” Kirby said. “Regardless of the season, our products help to deliver those unforgettable moments. We truly are in the experience building business.”
