And this was coming from an instructor at a college that is highly respected in the RV industry & has been doing it for 30 years. So, if you are looking I highly recommend you do it this year! Hope some of this helps you out!!!
Did the instructor say why the prices were going to go up 15-20%. ? Is that a normal yearly hike in RV prices or is it because it looks like this is bottom prices forRV?
Kinda glad we got our 2012 Shasta now

He said that the price is gonna go up more than it normally would. Just because the cost of goods & labor is rising so much. Really glad that I ordered mine this year!
