Fake news. Dealers lots are full around my county.


Same in Reno for many years now including present time. More hype (ly) marketing propaganda from the business and news press as usual.

Yesterday, we traveled 100 miles each way to have a service recall repaired on our TOAD - passed three large RV dealerships on the way. All three were packed full side x side with RV's from small TT's all the way up to MH ... another one of anything had NO room to fit into the lot. Nope, plenty of RV's on lots - no shortage. Drove I-75 in Central Florida.

Like I said it's a location thing. Come out to the PNW and try and find the most popular models. Several of the lots around me only have junker types like Salem Cruise Lites. All the big name brands are barely their like Montana, Cedar Creek, Solitude. Looks like the big dealers are getting the bulk while the smaller dealers are getting the left overs. Guessing it may be tough to get deliveries out to the west coast as well.

Agree. Drove down the I5 corridor and most lots were low.
I wonder how many of those full lots people are seeing, are full of ordered units finally arriving and others waiting on parts for repair.

There are no lots near me so I have no idea how many RV's are setting on them. All I know is that I could use a different used one and they are hard to find around here. When you do find one the prices are crazy these days.

Regional maybe. I drive an average of 3800 miles a week from Maine to Florida, and as far west as Denver. I pass a few RV dealers and most are chock full to the point they could not cram another on the lot. Furthermore you have to be a special kind of sucker to buy one of these things in the current market. Overpriced by at least 30% if not 40%, and the construction quality is down at least 50% from the previous terrible quality prior to 2020. But it's your money.

They’re always overpriced by 30-40% which is why everyone gets one-third off, and if the quality was lower than 50% they would just deliver a bunch of parts and we would build them ourselves. But welcome to the forum! I look forward to seeing those full lots myself when we head south next month. Although I don’t know where people are going to use them after they drive off the dealership lot ‘cause everything’s full up.

Been to an RV dealer in the last 12-18 months? They're getting MSRP or basically whatever they want, the days of one third off are over for the foreseeable future. In fact prices are 30%-40% higher than they were just a year ago due to manufacturer price increases that have been coming regularly, sometimes every month. They're also low grade junk across the board and you have to be a special type of fool to consider buying one at present.

Here in Alberta the rv lots are practically empty with new units, what they do now is put all their used stock as well as customers units that are in for repair up by the main highway and roads so it looks like they full.

Same goes for some car dealerships specially their lots are empty.

Everyone like rv manufacturing plants, automotive plants, appliance plants all must be waiting on the same 50 cent computer chip!
