Evidence RV 'LifeStyle' is growing, according to Thor

Interesting validation that more and more are choosing what's loosely referred to as an RV Lifestyle... 13% growth overall in Thor industries.

Interesting piece. although I can't argue the % I can attest that I have seen an increase in ownership (and rentals) among many of our friends and associates. (many of us used to be boaters, now getting into the RV lifestyle - so much more to see!). I can also relate to the rental option first. Although we own a coach we are considering flying to Alaska and renting an RV there - vs driving ours all the way out there. Although that is something we'd love to do - it would add a week to 10 days onto each end of the trip. Looked at the cost and it actually more economical to fly/rent - and we don't have the luxury of the extra time (yet)

Thor is racheting up their TV presence--also was a CBS info/doc/ad for them. If only Cramer or CBS would air the ThorAce video from YouTube, if you haven't seen it before, check this link:



Sadly funny, and the masses keep buying....
