Outdoor recreation is booming in the U.S. (it’s 2.2% of GDP,) and that includes RV travelers. According to the “RVs Move America Economic Impact Study,” the RV industry’s overall economic impact on the U.S. economy is $114 billion, which includes RV campgrounds and related travel, plus RV manufacturers, suppliers, sales, and service.
RV adventures are comfortable, kid-friendly, affordable, pet-friendly, and most importantly for many RV-ers, flexible. They attract a more varied demographic than you might expect, too. Your distinctive, eye-pleasing Scenic Byway, full of dramatic views along with places to stop and explore, is a perfect fit for such travelers. Are you ready for them?
Your hosts and speakers are Kevin Broom and Leslie McLellan.
