In recent years, the turbulent economy and changes in the environment have caused RV makers to rethink their business model. As gas prices rise and consumers become more money conscious, as well as environmentally friendly, new and different kinds of RV models have entered the market. From lighter machines with increased gas mileage to RVs designed for eco-friendly users, there are now types that suit all needs and styles.
In the article “As economy changes, RV shoppers look for new models,” Briana Wipf of The Great Falls Tribune writes, “Aafedt [owner of Time Travel RV] noted companies that have adapted to the economy and needs of customers for fuel economy have thrived in the past several years. Companies that haven’t made those changes to their RV design have suffered, some even going out of business.” For a RV company to survive, they must be able to adapt. Adaptability is as American as apple pie. It is now the lifeblood of the industry.
With a flood of new RVs on the market and consumers realizing that they can purchase an RV designed to their specifications, customization has become key. With different parts and accessories, RV owners can fine-tune their vehicle to fit their individual requirements. From RVs meant for braving the wilderness to smaller models designed for camping and traveling around town, RVs serve an almost endless amount of purposes.
The idea of customizing something and making it personal has always been popular, and that trend has now carried over into the world of RVs. You can find RV owners from all lifestyles. From elderly couples who have transformed their RV into handicap accessible machines to survivalists who have made their RVs into bunkers capable of withstanding even the harshest winters, the possibilities are infinite.
No matter what model of RV you own or are thinking of purchasing, you can refine it and shape it to suit any purpose you have in mind.
