The RV industry in Canada is booming, according to a recent study by the CRVA on the economic impact of recreational vehicle (RV) manufacturing, sales, tourism, and rentals. The study found that the RV industry provided Canadians with approximately 66,000 jobs and added over $4.7 billion to the national economy in 2017. Beyond just jobs and the national economy, however, the study also reported that RV owners supplemented the tourism industry in 2017 with over $2.1 billion dollars of extra revenue.
The study’s findings reinforced the important role the RV industry plays in supporting Canada’s economic growth. One of the core components in the study was the estimation of the economic impact of RV sales, a fact which local BC RV dealers are thrilled to hear. One of Vernon’s most established dealers, Mike Rosman RV Sales, noted, “it certainly is a thrill to hear that RV dealerships are doing their part to strengthen the local and national economy. Mike Rosman RV prides itself on providing full-time employment to locals, and to offering fair market prices on all RVs sold”.
Among the benefits of the study, which include better knowledge about the allocation of funding to support RV tourism in Canada, this data could also be used to help stimulate the already-booming industry to grow further. In a tourism-heavy province such as British Columbia, it is important for consumers to hear the degree to which BC RV dealers contribute to the local economy. Data like that from the CRVA empowers consumers to feel good about buying Canadian-manufactured RVs from local dealerships, and encourages them to use those RVs to travel and camp within Canada.
