RVIA Honors Thor Chairman Wade Thompson

Wade Thompson of Thor Industries received the RVIA Special Award. This prestigious award aims to recognize individuals who have made significant contributions to the overall success of the RV industry. “Thompson is a true titan of our industry,” said RVIA Chairman of the Board Carl Pfalzgraf, citing the industry leader’s early support of the Go RVing campaign, the respect he has earned among Wall Street insiders and business analysts, and his media savvy as things that have helped raise the stature of the RV industry. Pfalzgraf added, “with his keen business acumen, Thompson has grown Thor Industries into one of the largest and most-respected companies in our industry."

In accepting the award, Thompson said, "I've been in this industry over thirty years - more than half my life. Maybe the industry isn't so great now - we're supposed to be down 14% this year - but cheer up. It's not 1979. The sky is not falling. The industry will thrive and continue to grow - we've proved our mettle before and we will again."

Several other RVIA members were honored for their exceptional contributions to the association and the RV industry.

The Distinguished Achievement in RV Standards award was presented to Jerome Hoover, a compliance engineer with Monaco Coach. The award was established to recognize those members who have greatly impacted the enhancement of RV industry standards. Hoover has been actively involved in the RVIA standards program for 20 years. Pfalzgraf cited Hoover’s “dedication to serve and assist in the development of standards and policies, that has helped the industry build safer RVs.”

Ed Lee of Marshall Gas Controls was the recipient of The National Education Service Award, presented to recognize those who have been instrumental in the development of educational programs in the RV industry. Pfalzgraf praised Lee, saying, "As an active member of RVIA’s Industry Education Committee, he has played an integral part in the development of RV Service Technician Publications and had a key role in the RV Service Technician Certification and Job and Task analysis efforts."

RV Makers Adopt California’s Tough Formaldehyde Emissions Limits Nationwide

The nation’s producers of recreation vehicles (RVs) have embraced the same tough new formaldehyde standard that California has adopted, and will require it nationwide.

On June 12, RVIA's board of directors set an effective date for member manufacturers to begin using wood products that meet the California Air Resources Board’s (CARB) new formaldehyde emissions level, as a mandatory condition of membership.

Starting Jan. 1, 2009, RV makers that are members of RVIA will be required to build all units with wood products that comply with the CARB standard’s emission limits. By July 1, 2010, they must use wood that has been certified by an appropriate third party as meeting the CARB standard.

As a result of this schedule, RVIA will require its members to use CARB compliant wood nationwide a full 18 months before California phases in its requirement.

“We believe our adoption of the California requirement nationwide underscores our commitment to RV owners and their ability to use our products with confidence,” said RVIA President Richard Coon. “It also demonstrates the continuing commitment to the environment that our customers expect of the products that enable them to enjoy the outdoors.”

Formaldehyde is a naturally occurring chemical that is used to manufacture wood products commonly found in homes and RVs. When fully phased in, CARB expects the new standard to reduce formaldehyde emissions by approximately 57 percent from the wood products it covers: hardwood plywood, particleboard, and medium-density fiberboard.

Exposure to Wilderness Water Increases Risk of Contracting Waterborne Illnesses

Although wilderness water may appear to be clean and safe to drink, it is likely that ingesting it will result in illness caused by such pathogens as bacteria, viruses, protozoa, and parasites. Other methods of disease transmission include contact with the skin or mucous, the inhalation of aerosolized water, the ingestion of food, skin/soft-tissue or eye injury, the bite of insects, and human-to-human contact.

This report documents the factors that determine the risk of contracting a waterborne illness and explains that knowledge of the source of water exposure, length of symptoms, and incubation period for diseases will greatly assist in making an accurate diagnosis. A table presents some of the more common pathogens and their mode of transmission and symptoms.

Also presented are methods for disinfecting water found in the wilderness, including their advantages and disadvantages. For example, boiling water is the most reliable method of destroying pathogens; however, it is inconvenient and time consuming. In addition, chlorine dioxide is effective against all microorganisms, but to date this method has not been adequately tested in the field.

It is important that those involved in wilderness activities be knowledgeable about pathogens, waterborne disease symptoms, and methods of water disinfection in order to minimize the risk of contracting a waterborne illness.

The article is “Wild Water Everywhere, But Is It Safe to Drink (or Play in)? Better Safe Than on the Run from Waterborne Illnesses in the Wild” by Nancy Pietroski, PharmD. The article appears in Wilderness Medicine, Summer 2008 Issue, published by Allen Press.

Coachmen placing new emphasis on West Coast

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the top five growth states in the U.S. are in the West and South West. Equally impressive, 32.6 percent* of the United States new unit recreational vehicle registrations fall within the 11 states west of the Rockies.

In order to capitalize on their market share growth and momentum, Coachmen RV Group hired Scott Degnan as vice president of sales for the company's West Coast region. Physically located in California, Degnan will lead a dedicated West Coast sales team that oversees the sales of all towable and motorized Coachmen RV Group products in the western region.

The addition of Degnan and a dedicated western region sales team represents an aggressive series of moves by Coachmen RV Group to further expand its wholesale and retail sales. During the first four months of 2008, Coachmen showed considerable strength in national retail sales, with market share gains in nearly every product category.

"While we are pleased with our gains so far this year, our sales performance on the West Coast has not been what we've wanted," said Mike Bear, executive vice president for Coachmen RV Company LLC. "Through a dedicated West Coast Team, we will enhance the service that we provide to our current dealer base through aggressive sales training, inventory management and marketing analysis, as well as assure the appropriate focus on growing our dealer base."

Degnan has more than 20 years experience in sales in the RV industry and most recently was president of Alfa Leisure Inc.

RVRA Members Expect 2008 RV Rentals to Be Better Than 2007

RV rental companies anticipate 2008 to be better for RV rentals than 2007, according to a new survey of RVRA members. Those responding to the association’s annual survey report RV rental activity will be up an average of 20 percent this year.

“Most rental customers realize the increasing cost of gas is only a small percentage of the entire trip, and RV travel is still a great deal,” said RVRA Chairman Bert Alanko. “They are still enjoying an RV vacation, but taking shorter trips.”

RV rental companies are also adding more units to their fleets. The average rental fleet size for 2008 is 28 units, compared with 25 units in 2007. Dealers expanding their current fleet size are adding more Class C motorhomes and trailers.

The survey shows that 36 percent of RV rental customers are booking shorter trips, while 42 percent are booking their rental for the same amount of time as the previous year. Twenty-one percent of reported customers are booking longer trips. Survey respondents expect RV rentals by foreign visitors to make up 11 percent of all North American RV rentals in 2008, up 2 percent from 2007.

For anyone looking to plan an RV rental vacation this year, information and resources are available at www.rvra.org. This site offers an online directory that has a state-by-state listing of more than 300 rental companies across the U.S. and Canada. The site features consumer tips on renting -- including advice on selecting the proper unit. Consumers can also get a free DVD on RV travel by visiting the www.gorving.com website. The DVD contains useful introductory information on the type of RV units available.

Help The Federal Highway Trust Fund

Recent forecasts indicate a shortfall of several billion dollars to the Federal Highway Trust Fund in FY 2009, largely due to reduced driving and a decade-old congressional action that transferred more than $8 billion from the Highway Trust Fund to the General Fund.

RVIA Vice President of Government Affairs Dianne Farrell said of the situation, “A failure to ensure adequate money in the Highway Trust Fund could trigger funding cuts to states of approximately 34 percent. The resulting shortfall in state budgets could mean a serious delay – or even cancellation – of transportation infrastructure projects that are essential to the health of the RV industry.”

The Federal Aviation Administration extension bill being considered by Congress offers an opportunity to fix the Highway Trust Fund by restoring the $8 million that was removed. To help preserve the Trust Fund, RV industry members can contact their Congressmen and Senators and ask them to credit the Highway Trust Fund's Highway Account with the $8 billion that was taken from it in 1998.

"This revenue-neutral transfer would help to patch the shortfalls in the Trust Fund for 2009 and create a well-funded highway system that is critical to the RV lifestyle," said Farrell. "We're asking our members to email their federal legislators to prevent highway funding cuts that would undermine the network of safe, efficient roads that RVers rely upon." This message is also being supported by diverse groups like the American Highway Users Alliance, the American Public Transportation Association and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

To contact Members of Congress, go to
www.RVAct.com to customize the pre-written Congressional letter, or send it as is. For more information on this issue, call Clint Woods at RVIA at (703) 620-6003 ext. 318

Go RVing Goes Interactive

Recognizing the changing communications climate, Go RVing has launched itself into the social media universe and is continuing to increase its presence, engaging the consumer more interactively on GoRVing.com and popular websites including Facebook, and Yahoo’s Instant Messaging.

Visitors to GoRVing.com can now get ideas and inspiration for a family vacation or getaway with friends while playing “Hit the Road,” the interactive travel game added to the website to give consumers a virtual preview of what they can experience when they hit the road in an RV.

Players earn points by traveling state by state in a virtual RV as they choose destinations, while information about attractions in the area appears on the screen. If the player is interested in physically visiting the destination, they click on “Driving Directions” and Mapquest is engaged.

“Hit the Road” allows players to earn bonus points by playing three extra mini-games. “Interstate of Mind” is a true/false trivia game with questions about the state the player is currently traveling in. “Crank it Up” is a race against the clock to open a folding camping trailer, and “Flight of the Pumpkin” is a silly points-building virtual slingshot.

“Go RVing is keeping pace with America’s growing interest in online games and virtual travel planning,” said Gary LaBella, RVIA vice president and chief marketing officer. "The ‘Hit The Road’ game is a terrific way for families to plan for a real-life RV adventure before they even leave home. It's edu-tainment.”

The same new interactive games housed on the Go RVing website are also available on the popular free Yahoo! Instant Messenger (IM) service. Yahoo users can also access customized conversation screen images that depict RVing scenes, view Go RVing TV ads, read descriptions of RV types, and download popular recipes from GoRVing.com.

Go RVing has also unveiled a “fan page” on the popular Facebook site, serving 50 million users. Would-be and current RV enthusiasts can gather to learn about RVing, link to the Go RVing website, view photo albums of RV trips and the Go RVing ad campaigns, watch video postings and communicate with each other via the comment wall.

Internet users flock to blog pages for conversation and information. A newly introduced blog on GoRVing.com is being authored by well-known travel author and RVIA spokesperson Brad Herzog as he and his family take their annual summer RV roadtrip. The blog includes photos posted by Brad and his wife Amy along the way. Readers are encouraged to post their stories, comments, photos and videos of their own family RV trips.

“Hit the Road,” Facebook and the Go RVing blog are all accessible through links from the homepage of GoRVing.com.

General RV Opens New Dealership in North Canton

 

Look to RVs for Affordable Vacations, Despite High Fuel Costs

With fuel costs hovering around $4 a gallon, many Ohio families are looking for more affordable ways to vacation this summer. The new General RV Center in North Canton reminds you that RV vacations remain economical, even when you factor in higher fuel prices. In fact, a recent study by PKF Consulting found that fuel prices would have to triple for RVing to be more expensive than other forms of travel.

RV family vacations are, on average, 26 to 74 percent less expensive than travel by personal car, airline or cruise ship. Many RV parks are vacation destinations in their own right, offering something for everyone -- swimming pools, playgrounds, game rooms, boating, fishing, nature trails, planned activities and more.

According to online bookings at GoCampingAmerica.com and reservation statistics from Friend Communications, total campground bookings are up nationally about 23 percent from January to March 2008 versus the same period last year. RV shipments in Ohio have risen in the last year, totaling 9,930 in 2007.

"These numbers show that camping continues to be a strong and viable vacation option even in this uncertain economy," said Linda Profaizer, National Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds president. "People still have a great desire to get outdoors and travel. The statistics show they are turning to camping and RVing as a getaway."
