RV sellers expecting a good year in 2013

Posted:

RV sellers are expecting 2013 to be a good year.  That's what they're saying after high attendance at this weekends Annual Valley RV and Camping show in South Bend.  People poured into the Centruy Center in South Bend this weekend to check out all the newest campers.  Don Lowery said, "we've been camping for 30 years so it's nice to see the new things that are out there, may even buy a couple things you just never can tell."  Don Lowry and his wife already have an RV at home so they came just to look.  But Don said he could be persuaded to buy if there's something he really likes.  "It's all about price and what they have in them."

But Rosemary Kovacs and her husband are definitely in the market for a camper trailer.  "We wanted something we could disconnect from so we could drive our vehicle separate from our RV," said Kovacs.  Sunday was their second day at the RV and camping show.  "We were interested in something, we went home and talked about it and came back today to put in an application for one," said Kovacs.  And they're not alone.  Great Lakes RV Center President, Rob Reid, said, we've had some good success at selling at the show." 

Reid said they use this RV show as a spring board to see how business will be the rest of the year.  "I think it's gonna go very well, we'll probably do better than we did in 2012," said Reid.  Reid believes this because of people's behavior at the RV show.  "we've had a lot of good buying enthusiasm."  And the numbers of people at the show, "there's a lot of people coming in and out of here and I think Friday we had a record setting day for Friday."

Reid said it's because a lot of people are planning trips for this year.  Exactly what brought Rosemary Kovacs and her husband to the show.  "we've been thinking about going on a trip this summer to Tennessee and going to see the smoky mountains," said Kovacs.

Great Lakes RV Center says they'll have an even better idea of how business will be this year in a couple weeks.  That's because people will check RV's out at the show, think about it, then buy a few weeks later.
