Just like the housing bubble, there was a bubble in the RV industry

6/28/2011 - The following extract from an article is by, and reproduced from, DONNELLE ELLER DesMoinesRegister.com
 Link to full story 

Winnebago's new CEO - Randy Potts, 52, an Iowa native who has worked in manufacturing since graduating - follows Bob Olson, who remains the board chairman.

Potts has spent nearly 28 years at the northern Iowa motor home manufacturing plant, working his way up from a senior tool designer to vice president of manufacturing to president in January and CEO last week.

Potts talked with The Des Moines Register on Thursday as the White House announced President Barack Obama would visit Iowa on Tuesday to discuss the future of manufacturing.

Q. What would you like President Obama to do to help the manufacturing industry?

A. It's saddening to see how many manufacturing jobs this country has lost. But with globalization of economies, the world is a much smaller place.

  
Manufacturing jobs that involve a lot of labor, especially unskilled labor, will just keep going to cheaper sources. There's nothing our government can do about that. Protectionism has failed. We all have to learn how to adapt in a changing world.

Q. What are important economic factors for Winnebago? Is it jobs, retirement funds?

A. It's a multitude of factors. Just like the housing bubble, there was a bubble in the RV industry. ... The industry has a long history of working on either side of normal, but sales spiked to 70,000 units in 2004. Looking back, the RV industry was overbuilding. Once the economy came undone, sales plummeted. The consumer base went from 70,000 to 20,000. But the dealer network was stocked with inventory for that higher sales level. Manufacturing was stacked up for the higher sales level. It took a long time to work itself out.

When will we get back to normal?...:

A lot of people ask when we'll get back to normal, but we don't know. We simply don't know. Nobody knows.

We'll continue to gain market share. We'll take business away from our competition. But it's a bigger piece of a smaller pie.

We need to look for long-term sources of revenue. The towable trailer manufacturer we purchased in Indiana (SunnyBrook RV) is a good sampling of what we have an appetite for.

Q. Will workers, analysts, others who follow Winnebago see a big change between your leadership and Bob Olson's?

A. Bob was faced with a bottom falling out. He dealt with that very well. Many competitors went bankrupt. We survived and are strong. I'm looking ahead at a different chapter. We're figuring out where we're going to be in five years.

What we have to do now is more strategic. ... Winnebago is over 50 years old. The culture of this company, the product, quality, everything about this company has taken years to evolve. We can't be reckless. We have to be very careful.

Re: RVing with Your PetCoryWe travel with 2 senior Goldens and a young one... It is very important that our Fur Babies stay cool, I would have not thought to leave a key with the camp host or a note... We usually don't lock the door when we leave them... And a ramp is very important to have to help get them in and out so the steep stairs don't hurt their hips.

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.
Re: Getting Your Kicks at Age 66, the RV LifeJodiAfter reading this article-I am reminded of how wonderful the RVing life is. My husband and I were RVers for 7 years - We never regretted a minute that we spent travelling around and seeing the country. I agree with the writer that when you pull into an RV park - you can make instant friends if you want to. Most people are basically friendly and helpful.
Re: RVing with Your PetKayI have 2 older dogs who are big (84 pounds each) and I'm new to RV'ing with them. Can someone tell me the best way to travel with older dogs? What to look for in a campsite and what ramps are best? They both have hip dysplasia. Thanks!

Re: Retail sales heat up with new Super C RVs from Thor Motor CoachSuper C Motorhome FanThese new Thor Motor Coach Class Super C Motorhomes looks fantastic, the PowerStroke diesel engine is the best choice for mpg, power, and quality.

Re: Solar Keeps Rising: Stoltzfus RV and Marine Goes Green With SolarShannon ScottsFor the past 3 weeks I have been asking Dometic and Atwood for the efficiency rating (Coeffiency of Performance (COP)) for their heat pump/AC units for my 2002 Carriage. No one, Dometic nor Atwood, will give this data to me. Stating it's unavailable. This date is basic data. All one needs is the input in Watts and the output in BTU per hour when the heat pump is operating without a electric heat strip. It seems that they are trying to hide something. The new heat pump technology is the world most efficient way to heat anything (space or water) period if you have a source of electric (generator or say a fuel cell). If everyone who wanted to buy a heat pump demanded this information then they would have to provide it. The standard GE heat pump at about 9,000 BTUH((Window and PTAC) has a COP of 2.9 to 3.7 resectively at 47 degrees F. That means that for every 1000 watts of electricity used you could get more than 10,000 BTUH of heat. To compare to a stardard electric heater the same 1000 Watts would only produce 3413 BTUH of heat. The COP drops when the outside temperature drops because the heat pump compressor has to work harder to harvest the available ambient heat in the outside air. Are the RV AC/Heat Pump manufacturers trying to hide the fact that they are selling people very low COP heat pumps compared to standard house units out there where as they might have to increase the COP to really compete? PS If anyone out there has access to this data please post it here. Thanks.
Re: Rand McNally and RVDA Dealer and Service Location AppfmprdwgJust purchased 2012 Jayco Seneca 38 foot. Cummins diesel and Freightliner chassis. Lots of power, mileage is a true 10mpg.

Like the Idaho cross-fostering project, the reintroduction has suffered major setbacks. In 2003 only 68, a third of the birds released, survived after 10 years. Attention has now turned to perhaps the most ambitious hi-tech intervention ever mounted for the whooping crane. It drew first breath in the early 1990s, when two small-plane pilots trained a group of captive-reared Canada geese to follow their light aircraft on a migration route from Ontario to sites in Virginia and South Carolina. The plane and pilots took the place of wild adult geese that would, in a normal context, guide less-experienced birds on such a journey. Juvenile sandhill cranes then became the focus of an interim project, before the organisers finally embarked on Operation Migration.
