RV sales highest since recession

From today's Dayton Daily News

RV sales see highest increase post Great Recession |

Recreation Vehicle sales are at the highest they been since the Great Recession began, according to industry experts, who cited stabilized fuel prices and low interest rates for the increase.

The iconic Airstream, built an hour from Dayton in the small Shelby County town of Jackson Center, has seen the same renaissance.

Airstream president and CEO Bob Wheeler said his company has seen a 50 percent increase in sales in the past year due to an expansion into markets his company left during the recession, an expanded ad campaign, and new products rolled out in the past year.

“Our typical customer isn’t affluent. They’ve saved up for the best and they believe our products will be around forever,” Wheeler said.

While most of that growth has been on both coasts, Wheeler said Ohio ranked fourth out of 50 states in total sales in 2013 and eighth in total sales in the past 12 months.

Due to the sales increase, hiring at the company is up 26 percent, according to Wheeler.
