I ’ m not sure that I can remember a time when things were so busy for the Australian RV industry . As more and more people emerge from various states of lockdown , manufacturers are shifting into high gear in an effort to keep pace with demand .
As you ’ ll read in this issue , Caravan Industry Victoria has even entered into a partnership aimed at creating 150 new jobs . The idea is to help its manufacturing members reduce bottlenecks and improve delivery times , which have blown out to as far as 18 months for some .
For RVers , it ’ s no-doubt frustrating to have to wait so long . Of course , the secondhand market is thriving as a result .
The industry , it appears , has joined the covidrecovery effort . In Queensland , at the mid-October RV show , there was even a pop-up clinic where show-goers could get themselves vaccinated . Not bad at all .
All of this activity means that you , the RVer , needs more than ever to educate yourself before committing to a purchase . This means asking plenty of questions and preferably buying from reputable , established manufacturers .
Whatever else , one thing is certain : the months ahead are going to be busy and exciting for manufacturers and RVers .
