The Recreation Vehicle Industry Association(RVIA) pegs 2015 RV shipments at 380,000, joining RVIA's estimated 9 million-plus already on the road.
The question remains: Who's going to repair them???
According to the U.S Department of Labor & Statistics, there's an estimated 8,000 to 10,000 service techs in the RV industry. Through April 2015, however approximately only 2,381 have gone through the training needed to be certified--signifying they have demonstrated the knowledge and ability to satisfy established standards in RV diagnostic and repair procedures.
