I wonder when we will start seeing a similar drop in new car sales? Prices now are WAY to high.



Give it a little time, as in months. 4 to 6 maybe. We're already in a recession despite what Mumbles claims.


I think I agree, although unlike RVs whose mfgs and dealers are now again flush with inventory on a recreational “luxury “ commodity, vehicle inventory new and used is still ridiculously low.
I think it’ll take longer to see vehicle prices normalize, unfortunately.

It’s funny to see the RVers get all weirded up about RV sales.
Just looking at total sales data, it doesn’t even make sense that more than 300-400k RVs a year is normal. So comparing to the previous 2 years is pointless.

Shall I list the reasons? Lets start with SSI, food stamps, medical cards, free or subsidized housing, food banks, and there is more. If you know how to work the system the last thing you need is a full time job....
Also Social Security and Medicare, our two largest income transfer programs. Lots of old folks would probably be back looking for work if we cut those! I agree this has little relevance to RV sales.

"Divided we will fall"
Is this a political statement, or is it simply argumentative,....or both?
IMO it's a waste of time to pretend that we can solve these problems here. Let's just stay united by using RVing as the glue. It's just a suggestion, I'm not a preacher. I'm a senior citizen who knows some very important things about driving a motorhome safely.

Nice spin....I'd bet a few bucks he wasn't referring to the intended recipients and those that SHOULD be collecting the SSI they paid into....
Thanks for playing!
