RV Industry Experiencing Massive Growth

The RV industry is currently undergoing massive growth since the beginning of the COVID19 Pandemic. From 2009 to 2019 there were over 20,000 RV units produced each year in Australia. In 2020 it has been suggested there were well over 33,000 units produced.

Some RV manufacturers have withdrawn from capital city shows. Australia's biggest RV manufacturer Jayco, will be noticeably absent from major east coast RV shows this year. The Victorian based RV manufacturer has cited booming pandemic-driven sales and the lengthy Victorian lockdowns which have seriously impacted many Victorian businesses.

The big questions with all this massive growth are obvious. Where are the new parks to accommodate all these new vehicles?

In addition, for those older parks that had been designed for tents and 15’ caravans, when will we see improved and expanded site sizes to accommodate modern vehicles of various sizes to meet customer expectations?

In response to the 2020 COVID19 lockdown, last year your board offered an extension to membership due dates by an additional 6 months for members who accepted this generous offer.

To avoid confusion, please wait for your membership renewal notice to arrive before paying membership fees.

Your extended 6 months membership expiry date has been activated and is current in our system. Your new membership card will be issued to commence from the new extended renewal date.
