Saskatchewan Leads the Country in RV Purchases for 2010

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.

These numbers clearly show that Canadians are taking advantage of 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 discovering the fun and flexible travel options that RVing provides, and the best part is, it is extremely affordable."

Earlier this year, Go RVing Canada released provincial sales data for 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. While consumer prices in most other industries have been on the 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.

RVing remains an incredibly affordable vacation option for Canadian 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 a traditional week's vacation for a family of four, when the costs of flights, car rental, hotels and eating out at restaurants are considered.
