We did a story a month or so about how in the world of RVs, small is getting big. And the 2017 RV Business RV award of the year also went to one of these tiny units!
Looks like we aren’t the only ones noticing this trend as this Bloomberg News article shows.
“Shipments of towable recreational vehicles have increased by one-third in the past three years, according to the Recreational Vehicle Industry Association. They now make up 87 percent of the RV market.
This pint-size RV trend coincides with the tiny-house movement and a crowd of digital nomads adopting the #vanlife. More important, RV makers are downsizing to towables after a boom in sales of big trucks and SUVs. In the past five years, Americans have purchased 11.7 million new pickup trucks and 3.3 million large SUVs like the Cadillac Escalade and Dodge Durango.”
