Recreational vehicle sales surge amid pandemic

With the COVID-19 coronavirus making its way across the globe, many businesses have suffered from a lack of patronage. Small businesses are particularly hard hit with many even closing their doors for good. There is, however, one industry that has seen an increase in business. Camping and sports stores have seen a surge in business. In fact, some companies are reporting an increase of 30 - 35 % in recreational vehicle sales. Why are people flocking to buy RVs amidst the coronavirus outbreak? Let's take a look at why this industry is flourishing so well.

About COVID-19

Rv sales BC

COVID-19 is a contagious virus that primarily has attacked the elderly, those with reduced immune protection, or people with underlying conditions. The symptoms of COVID-19 range from mild to severe and may include high fever, cough, and shortness of breath.

The CDC has also warned that some people may spread the virus with no symptoms. In other words, they are asymptomatic. This increases the risk for those with underlying conditions and the elderly.

Surge In Recreational Vehicles During Coronavirus

The coronavirus, namely COVID-19, is a deadly virus that has been ravaging countries across the globe. This pandemic has put a halt on air travel, entertainment venues, and vacationing to a large degree. Consequently, people have had to find alternative methods for traveling, vacationing, and still feeling safe. Here's where RVs come into the picture.

A recreational vehicle offers a secluded vacation place on wheels that is both safe, virus-free, and comfortable. You have full control of who enters your space, so you can ensure the safety of you and your loved ones. In addition, you will also be able to sanitize any interior areas as you see fit if someone does come into your RV. Whereas when staying in a motel or flying on a plane, you don't know for sure if the area is properly sanitized.

Also, when traveling in other ways, you are forced to be in closer contact with others who may have the virus. With your own private recreational vehicle, you can promote social distancing inside or just allow your own personal family. You have all the control, which provides you with a feeling of safety.
