A few days ago an RV service advisor told me.....

A few days ago an RV service advisor told me that the corporate rep expects the sales frenzy to continue for 2-3 years.

I was astonished......2-3 years? Hard for me to believe.

Salespeople tend to run hot or cold and not much in between. I'll believe it when I see it. I'd like to know what the CEO thinks.

Since the election virus is over, it’s all gonna depend on economic recovery. If it booms it booms, if it busts it’s gonna crash hard.

Inflation is starting to creep up. That means interest rates will go up, so discretionary spending, like RVs, will go down.

I do agree the day of reckoning is probably 2 years out. Just takes time for the impact to ripple through the economy.

I'm seeing used 2021s for sale around here already by private sellers. You either love it or not but best to find out on the cheaper used end first.
The media has hyped RVing up beyond reality.

I personally expect to see the RV market crash sooner than later given the way people at least in my area are acting more and more like life as normal every day, seeing people wearing masks is now by far the exception, forget social distancing, people are dining out, staying in motels, etc. The only thing that is not really back to normal yet is international travel and the cruise industry. When those are allowed to go back to normal I suspect we will see some significant promotional rates for cruises and travel packages to try to lure the customers back as soon as possible, though of course some of that infrastructure is gone, cruise ships have been scrapped, resorts shuttered, etc. Combine this with the ever increasing gas prices, lack of camping destinations, etc. and I suspect by the end of the year this boom will be over.

Actually I would like to see the prices climbing. Then you would get more on your rig when ready to sell it.

Air travel over Memorial Weekend was at 75% of Pre-Pandemic Levels

Cruise Ships are Launching again

Actually, due to pent-up demand, I think the travel and cruise industry rates will remain high. Have you priced a cruise lately? I've been pricing a cruise for fall of 2022 and it's about 30% higher than it was a year ago.
Most of the cruise ships that were scrapped had no or few balconies, or were very old and were going to be sold off in the next few years anyway. After the Diamond Princess fiasco last year, who wants a cabin with no balcony?
I think the RV craze will continue at least for another year, maybe two.

Peeps that went out on a limb and purchased an RV they probably could not afford will be asking themselves next year "why did we do this"?

Making huge monthly payments on something you use occasionally will grow old fast. The used market will expand. The recession will worsen, and folks will be back at work 40+ hours a week with no time for RV vacations.

That's what my crystal ball showed me today.

I'm inclined to agree.....especially after these newbies realize it's not as glamorous as they thought with all the maintenance and crowded campgrounds.
