RVAA Headlines:
Message from the President: Getting Ready for San Diego!

Spring has finally sprung! I can't think of a better way to celebrate the season than by continuing to build momentum for the RVAA Executive Conference in San Diego this August.

Registration has been open for only a few days and so far, we have over 20 companies already signed up. I'm excited to see how that number grows in the weeks to come. We're expecting another big turnout this summer. Our host property, the Rancho Bernardo Inn, is a beautiful spot ideal for taking care of business, unwinding with friends and having a little fun too! 

Don't forget: Conference registration closes on Friday, June 9, so it is important to register early. (See below for more details about the Conference.)

Business is booming in the RV industry these days, including the aftermarket. It's great to see that 80% of respondents to our recent survey say their aftermarket net income has grown over the past year (see article below for more details). With so much going on in our space, you'll don't want to miss the Executive Conference.

If anyone has questions, please reach out to RVAA Headquarters for assistance.

Spring Regards!

Susan Carpenter
RVAA President
