G.R. Camper, Travel and RV Show sets attendance record

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.—Organizers of the Grand Rapids Camper, Travel and RV Show say Thursday’s attendance was up 20 percent, setting a new opening day record for the event.

Organizers say the jump in attendance reflects rising demand in the RV industry.  According to the Recreational Vehicle Industry Association, RV sales this year could top 335,000, the most in six years.  RVIA says improving consumer spending as well as housing and stock markets are fueling the increase, as well as low interest rates.

 The Camper, Travel & RV Show runs through Jan. 26.
