RV makers fret about government fire sale

March 8, 2007
Recreational vehicle companies in northern Indiana and elsewhere are lobbying the federal government to not dump on the market as many as 41,000 surplus RVs left over after Hurricane Katrina.

The extra RVs are equivalent to about a third of the industry’s sales last year and could create a glut, according the Washington Post.

The South Bend Tribune quotes industry sources as saying most of the buyers would likely be in the South, where the RVs are stored, but that the sale will likely affect the industry no matter how the Federal Emergency Management Agency disposes of them.
