rv-pro.com June 2018 • RV PRO • 35 Reflections on the Changing RV Business "As a whole, the RV business is still the RV business," says Bobby Sherrod. But he also acknowledges that it's changed. "It used to be more territorial. Now, with the Internet, people can buy from long distances. So, it's more of a challenge to keep people in their local areas to buy so they can be properly serviced and taken care of." Other customer demographics have shifted as well. "25 years ago, it was more a retired-age group of people; now it's a lot of young married couples buying recreational vehicles. And it used to be more seasonal. Now it's year-round and more people are buying RVs now than ever have bought RVs." As for the future, it's still looking pretty bright through Bobby Sherrod's eyes. "I feel like right now our economy is real strong; interest rates are still fair and I think the RV business will continue to be real strong." Besides, he adds, "We feel God is taking care of us; that He sustains us. He has met all of our needs and we move forward. This is just a little hiccup."
