Rising gas prices will have it's inevitable and predictable impact on RV sales and use. Historically low fuel (corrected for inflation) prices that has fueled the boom in sales will tamp demand and slow new RV sales.

The coming years do not bode well for the industry in general.
Plants with the best work ethic and efficiency will survive.

Don't look for a Chrysler style bailout for the RV industry.

Hmmm; that was obviously adapted to current events.
Here are the original Lyrics by Tom Paxton


Oh the price of gold is rising out of sight
And the dollar is in sorry shape tonight
What the dollar used to get us now won't buy a head of lettuce
No the economic forecast isn't right
But amidst the clouds I spot a shining ray
I can even glimpse a new and better way
And I've devised a plan of action worked it down to the last fraction
And I'm going into action here today

CHORUS:
I am changing my name to Chrysler
I am going down to Washington D.C.
I will tell some power broker
What they did for Iacocca
Will be perfectly acceptable to me
I am changing my name to Chrysler
I am headed for that great receiving line
So when they hand a million grand out
I'll be standing with my hand out
Yes sire I'll get mine

When my creditors are screaming for their dough
I'll be proud to tell them all where they can all go
They won't have to scream and holler
They'll be paid to the last dollar
Where the endless streams of money seem to flow
I'll be glad to tell them what they can do
It's a matter of a simple form or two
It's not just remuneration it's a liberal education
Ain't you kind of glad that I'm in debt to you

CHORUS

Since the first amphibians crawled out of the slime
We've been struggling in an unrelenting climb
We were hardly up and walking before money started talking
And it's sad that failure is an awful crime
Well it's been that way for a millennium or two
But now it seems that there's a different point of view
If you're a corporate titanic and your failure is gigantic
Down to congress there's a safety net for you

CHORUS

This is what really happened, The dealers had more buyers than they had units. So instead of ordering 5 they would order 10 . But they might only had 4 or 5 buyers, the manufacturers would up production to fill the orders for the dealers. So when the market slowed down the dealers had extra inventory. So then the dealer would not order new units with high inventory that’s what caused the RV industry slow down. I’m in the RV parts business And it has slowed for me also, but we are steady with our orders.
