I hope everyone takes away from this thread, that people are all basically the same. They want the sense of adventure and freedom. The one hero was depicted by living in LA in a RV doing whatever menial jobs he needs to do to get by. Sounds suspiciously like Work camping, doesn't it.

I for one welcome the Chinese wanting to make their own RV's, because that means, the more well-off Chinese will look to American made RV's when they want to upgrade and get something luxurious. I can forsee a day when demand for US made RV's will be in the hundreds of thousands of units, all shipped to China. We seem to forget, every time Countries start to grow economically, they clamor for US made products.

You make an excellent point in that the Chinese will eventually want American RV's (I agree)

However my longer term concern is that the Chinese RV manufacturers will export ( more like invade or dump RV's)into to the American RV market low cost RV's that will put the American RV manufacturers out of business. (Although it may be 20 years or so before it happens)

I hope I am wrong.

The only thing that's new about Chinese Rving is the engine(s)

They are already the NO. 1 car manufacturer in the world since 2009! Doubt they will want our RVs other than to copy them(as the Japanese and Korans did before them) just like they are doing with everything else.

Don't worry about them exporting to the US they cannot keep up with their own car market much less RVs. Don't believe they will need us for much soon, other than food(which they are currently copying CAT and others for heavy machinery, etc.). Maybe someday we will wake up(if not too late already)!

They (the Chinese) have 3 times the population, so soon they will be the number one manufacturer of everything simply to meet demands of that huge population. As their economy grows, so will their lust for things foreign. This can only be good for us. As far as them flooding the RV market in the US, I'm sure they will try to get into our market, but they have two major obstacles to overcome. First, they will have to keep up with the demand at home. That will be no small task. Second, they RV's they bring in will be entry level at best. The good quality RV manufacturers here will still survive, and even expand to meet the growing demand of chinese upscale buyers.

We have nothing to worry about unless the RV manufacturers start to go the way of our own auto industry in the 70s. They made a substandard product because they were the only game in town.

Well, I googled "Chinese travel trailers for export"-

Here's a nice unit:

Off Road Heavy Duty Travel Trailer - China Off Road Heavy Duty Travel Trailer Supplier,Factory - Tangshan HouCheng Science & Technology Co., Ltd.

And according to the description, it not only has "ten brakes", it comes with "Jerry Can Holders for 9 Jerry Cans"

What more could the Average American RVer ask for?

You make that sound like a bad thing?? Maybe that's what the RV industry needs, cheap(price) units that may actually get better mileage, have better electronics and actually work as described right off the lot. Imagine not needing to tour the factory while they fix the 50 things you have already found wrong with your brand new rig.

We had a Daewoo car- ran fantastic, great mileage and less than 6k new. Toyota, Honda, etc.. Lasts longer lower maintenance for a better price. I'm all for American made if you actually get what you pay for.

In this case then, it's up to us the consumers. We have to choose who we purchase from. The state of Chinese purchasing of lower priced products that are believed to be of equal quality was brought about by the American consumer. I'm one of them too. We are the reason............................................ .................
