5/18/2011 - The following is an RVDA press release.  (RVDA is the national association representing RV retailers. The association’s members include RV dealers, RV rental operators, and RV AfterMarket sales and service locations   Link to RVDA website 

RVDA will present the association’s Dealer Satisfaction Index (DSI) Quality Circle Awards to top-performing manufacturers at a special all-industry dinner at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, NV, on October 5, during the 2011 RV Dealers International Convention/Expo.

Now in its 18th year, the DSI survey began in April. Dealers have until July 1 to rate the brands/manufacturers they carry on eight factors of importance to dealers. Those areas include: sales support, sales territory, vehicle design, vehicle reliability/quality, competitive price/value, parts support, dealership warranty support, and overall dealer communications.

“It’s very appropriate to present the Quality Circle Awards in conjunction with the 2011 convention,” said RVDA Chairman of the Board Tim O’Brien of Circle K RVs in Lapeer, MI. “The dinner will offer an outstanding opportunity to celebrate and recognize excellence in RV manufacturing and business practices along with dealers and the entire RV industry.”

To qualify for the Quality Circle Award, brands/manufacturers must receive at least 15 dealer responses and score 80 percent or higher in overall dealer satisfaction.

 RVDA held the award ceremony the day before the opening of the Louisville Show in previous years. There will be a separate registration charge for the special all-industry dinner. More details on the dinner will be available as the convention approaches.

Results of this year’s DSI will be presented at Partners in Progress Brand Committee meetings during the convention on October 3 and 4. Only dealers carrying a particular manufacturer’s brand of products may attend brand committee meetings.

She approached him. &lsquo;I don&rsquo;t want to bother you or interrupt your meal,&rsquo; she said. &lsquo;Would you mind taking a picture with me on your way out?&rsquo; He told her that would be fine, and Sarah walked back over to me. Styles still looked uneasy. The woman next to him had her hand on his knee and was kissing his cheek. Styles had been the subject of fevered romantic speculation since his break-up with Taylor Swift in January, and the two dozen paparazzi waiting outside would love to have this shot, which, Sarah later told me, could easily fetch $15,000 in the United States and maybe double that in Britain.

SOME OF THE LATEST COMMENTS ABOUT RVING NEWS ITEMS:
(See also general comments further down this page)
Re: RV industry bubble - just like housingPatty O CamperI enjoyed reading the interview with Randy Potts, the new CEO of "Winnebago". His comments confirmed the feeling I had about the economy and it's impact on the RV Industry. I also noted he ignored the interviewer' s question about "how president Obama could help the RV industry" the question was stupid. The best thing government can due for the economy in general is to back-off on all the regulations that have strangled the American spirit of self-reliance. The crash in the economy was the result of government involvement in the housing industry. Insisting that banks loaned money for real estate to people who could never make the payments....all in the name of "equality". Banks started to fail, the housing market went into a depression and all because too many unqualified mortgage holders failed to make their payments. During this crisis the government continues to print money every week reducing the value of our currency on the world market and fueling inflation in this country. It is good to see Winnebago isn't in line for any government handouts like too many members of our dependent society seem to be. Reduce regulations, build the Keystone pipeline and the price of fuel for our RV's will go down....and get the ethanol out of our gasoline....it is reducing gas mileage and destroying our motor vehicles!9/2/2014 8:56:00 AM

Re: Getting Your Kicks at Age 66, the RV LifeCHUCK AND LIZWe were full time RV'er for 7 years while I was still working. My job included travel so the RV was perfect. Retired now (67) but have COPD and require oxygen. Bought a house as a home base. Have the house concentrator and bottle charger in washer/dryer compartment. Have a rented backup portable concentrator in living room. We still love our RVing and getting older may mean moving a little slower, but no reason to stop. Just make sure you got your meds and a way to get refills.5/25/2014 10:04:00 AM
