RV Sales up

Article on RV sales:
RV revival prospects running hotter on cheaper gas

It amazes me how the price of gas can be such a big driver of sales (for both Autos & RVs). When prices are down people just run out and buy the big expensive stuff then when the prices inevitably rise back up again they are stuck.

(Note that our Axis purchase predated the current gas price drop. That also doesn't mean I'm hating filling up 50 gallons at <$2.00/gal either ! I actually love that the gas tank on the Axis is over 2X the size of the F-350 tank. Now gas stops are much less frequent--of course they also take longer LOL)

I think you misread my statement: I'm not hating filling up 50+ gallons as it means going longer between fillups.

I was so excited when gas prices were down to $2.17, I drove to the gas station 4 times to fill up three 5 gallon cans and filled up my Hurricane....figured it would not go below that price. I saved over $70.00 from the $3.84 price when I drove it home October 2014. Now the price here is down to $1.88! Oh well, the tank is full and waiting for Spring break for the drive to Naples!!

We just got back from a road trip to Southern California to visit family & friends.
Try almost $4.00 a gallon out there. Happy to be back in Colorado where gas prices are down around $2.60 a gallon.
