Won't be this spring. With the media pushing the virus so hard. Camping will still be the way to go.


I don't know about this being the media's fault.... it might be tge overflowing ICUs and morgue?

I feel very fortunate that back in April, I was able to locate the 5th wheel that I wanted and could get it at 30% off MSRP. I had to go 4 hours away from my home to get it but it was worth it. Especially since I've read a lot about inventory being low all over the Country. I was very fortunate indeed!

30% off msrp days are gone. The best I can get is about 18% off on a Grand Design Reflection. The dealers a definitely in the drivers seat and if you don't want it, no problem they'll just wait for another buyer.

Folks, if you think all RV lots are empty, drop in at Springfield IL, The old gander mountain store lot there is full to the brim with RV's for sale.

Gee haven't read about the morgues being over run. The percentage of deaths by covid have dropped because the Doctors have learned better how to treat it. It actually has a 99+ percentage of survival. Yes even one is too many. But that isn't a bad stat

Terry,
Google search "mobile morgues" and you will find a lot of places. Pueblo CO. here in Colorado is one. Very sad. [emoticon]

If "one is too many", what is the 3,000+ Covid-19 related deaths reported yesterday? Getting worse not better as people act like "It is just the sniffles". I have lost four acquaintances and that is too many for me.
