The Midwest RV Super Show came to a close Sunday in Elkhart, Ind., with exciting news for dealer participants: booming numbers for dealers and buyers.
“I know sales have been good. By the time we finish up the show today, there will probably be somewhere in the neighborhood of 50 to 60 units sold over the course of four days out here,” said Matt Rose, the show’s director, told ABC57.
This year’s turnout brought more than 4,000 people to the show at the RV/MH Hall of Fame grounds, exceeding last year’s attendance.
Rose said he believes the numbers soared because of the average RV buyer is changing.
“The average RV buyer is actually getting younger. We see a lot of families coming out, which is great, because they’re going to enter the RV market earlier and they’ll buy more RVs over the course of their RVing career, so that’s a great thing for the industry,” Rose said.
