SASKATOON, Sept. 13, 2011 /CNW/ - Today, Go RVing Canada released
provincial sales data for Saskatchewan and the year 2010. The new data
demonstrates that in 2010, Saskatchewan led the country in RV purchases
on a per capita basis. In addition, residents of the province were
almost three (2.87) times more likely to purchase an RV in 2010 than
Canadians in other provinces.

continued affordability in the marketplace and discovering the fun,
freedom and flexibility that an RV vacation provides.
"This highlights the degree to which Saskatchewan has become a leading
destination for RVers of all ages," said Go RVing Canada Spokesperson
Alana Fontaine. "More and more Canadians all over the country are

Saskatchewan and the month of March 2011, demonstrating that RV sales
in the province jumped an impressive 19.3 per cent this year over last.

increase in recent months with relatively high inflation, RV purchase
prices have remained stable at the record-low levels consumers have
been enjoying for several years.
"Affordability drives demand and RV prices have never been better for
Canadian families looking to experience the RV lifestyle without
breaking the bank," continued Ms. Fontaine.

families. Depending on the RV model, a typical family RV vacation can
be up to 75% less expensive per day than other forms of vacation
travel. According to a recent cost-comparison study conducted by PKF
Consulting, an RV trip is shown to be more economical when compared to
