Guaranty Opens RV Park in Junction City
RV Industry Growth Continues to Set Records
Junction City, Ore - Once a hotbed for recreational vehicle manufacturing, Lane County experienced rough times as the economic downturn forced industry changes. Fueled by a surge in sales across the county, Lane County is seeing growth in sales, servicing and manufacturing of recreational vehicles.
When asked about the new RV Park, Guaranty RV President Shannon Nill noted, "The Guaranty RV Park is conveniently located minutes from I-5 and offers several unique services for an RV Park such as factory authorized warranty repair and parts, café and grocery on site including growler fill station, as well as a mobile pet groomer. We couldn’t be more thrilled with how well it has turned out.”
The Recreation Vehicle Industry Association’s (RVIA) November survey of manufacturers noted RV wholesale shipments were the best November on comparable record. An increase of nearly 18% for the first eleven months of 2017. While towable trailers led the way, motorhome shipments increased 16.5% for the month and are up 14.5% for the period. A 2016 study of the recreation vehicle industry revealed the RV industry contributed 5,794 full-time jobs and $1.7 Billion to Oregon’s economy! President of the Oregon RV Alliance Brad Waring noted that, "much of the industry's growth is being fueled by a shift in the average age of RV purchasers. Over the last ten years the average age of an RV owner was 49 and today the fastest growing segment of RV customers is 35-44."
