The following report comes from WTVF in Nashville, Tenn., the site of a large regional RV show that just ended Sunday.
It’s going to be another big year for road trips.
This year, at least 600,000 RVs, an all-time high, are expected to be available for purchase, according to the RV Industry Association. Camping spots at National Parks are also expected to fill up months in advance.
The RV Super Show returned to Music City Center in Nashville Jan. 21-23. This is the 17th time the show has come to the convention center, and this year it spanned 100,000 square feet.
“There’s stuff that if you just wanted to go to your closest campground and spend a weekend, or you wanted to go across the country to a National Forest you’ve never been to and want to do something with your family… there’s things for everything,” said Jordon Nelson of BK Productions.
A dealership at the show, Bankston Motor Homes, said when the pandemic started, interest in RVs skyrocketed.
“Bottom line that’s why the RV industry is booming right now,” said Eddie Sisk. “Even in the small trailer up to the big rig, everyone is wanting their own place to stay.”
