Our Sales have been going up. Last month we delivered about 30-35 units. I will have to ask my supervisor to be sure. I am taking the day off but can try to remember to ask tomorrow.

There was an article on the news the other day that RVing is on the upswing. However, the article went on to say that the people fueling the increase was the younger families and not the retired or soon to be retired couples like in the past.

Poor economy, increased RV sales, that's a great thing for the industry. Less money to spend means purchasing less expensive units like towables which fit in nicely with younger families and their needs. It's what we did when we young, not because we had a lot of money, rather, just to get away from the rat race for a couple of weekends a month. Glad to see the current generation thinks the same, there's hope for the world yet.

Although wholesale sales are up considerably, it will be interesting to see how they retail. Many dealers are just now repalcing inventory as it was slowly depleated over the last year to 18 months. That, coupled with dealers struggling to get banks to floor inventory, left mighty slim pickins at many dealerships.

Yacht sales are up also. We just sold a 42ft catamaran in less than 45 days!
