Lose your home, buy a RV

In the next few weeks you are going to hear things like: "great news the economy is getting better. The RV industry is booming. Elkert,Indiana, home of the RV industry is back on its feet. The bad times are over."

Politicians will quote statistics showing how great the economy is doing, and citing the National RV Trade Association who released numbers showing sales rose 16 percent from July to August nationwide this year, and sales are projected to jump 26.5 percent next year with a backlog of new orders.

What they will forget to tell you, is that the RV industry may be booming because people are choosing to buy and live in an RV instead of a tent when they lose their home. In other words, the RV boom may be an indication of just how bad the economy really is. Of course this is great for Winnebago and others, but even in bad economies, there are always sectors that boom.
