RV dealers have high hopes for 2013

Posted:

The "RV Capital" hosted it's first ever Spring Hall of Fame RV show.

All weekend six of the area's dealers showed off the newest RV's of the season. Dealers say there was a steady crowd all weekend long and they look forward to the start of another season.

"We've had a great show. The traffic has been phenomenal, the weather was terrific Friday and Saturday, a little bit of mist Sunday, but it didn't dampen anybody's spirits and we had great traffic on Sunday as well. The buyers are definitely out for the RV's this season," says Barry Hyser, a dealer from Tiara RV. 

While the RV industry has had some ups and downs over the last few years, there are high expectations for 20-13.

"We're expecting a record breaking year this year. Projections continue to rise for 2013. A lot of the models that people are looking at out here are 2014 models already and sales have been extremely well this weekend," says Matt Rose, Director of Recreation Vehicles. 

This was the final show of the spring because now dealers are heading into the summer months which is the busiest time on the lot.
