“According to the company, that amount of range will accommodate 54 percent of new RV buyers who prefer to make trips under 200 miles.”

125 miles maximum…I prefer making short trips too but to really see this country that’s not workable mileage.

I think they are confusing
- 54% of trips are under 200 miles
versus
- 54% of campers never go more than 200miles.

I can certainly believe the first. Lots of people I know do weekend trips and a lot of those are under 200miles.

But most of those same people will take a trip or two per year that goes well beyond 200 miles.

Of course, it's the marketing department, so it may not be confusion so much as intentional misleading.

The first EVs were also limited to less than 100 miles. Now most go 230 to 400 miles.
Once they start building..... then the improvements start coming.

Airstream has gotten into it too.

Apparently this can help park itself, and help with towing on the highway.
So, by spending huge amounts of money, you can get back to what everyone used to do.

My favorite Dilbert cartoon has Dilbert spending a week in the Marketing Department for orientation. On his first day, the marketing manager tells him "what you see here will look like outright criminal fraud, but it's not, it's just marketing." [emoticon]

Nah, there are plenty of folks who buy an RV to go out 3-5 times a year to party near their house. I'm not sure how they justify the expense, but it's not my money. I've put just under 10k miles a year on my tow since I got my fist trailer, but I know that puts me in the top 1% of owners.
