Committee Week Marquee

RVs Move America Week is the time when RV industry colleagues come together to showcase the strength of the industry in meetings with federal policymakers across Capitol Hill, while collectively building a strategic road-map to help define future growth of the industry. 

RVs Move America Week consists of RV Industry Association committee meetings and the annual advocacy event on Capitol Hill where members meet with Congressional and Administration officials, forge relationships beneficial to business and discuss current issues affecting the industry. From increasing membership in the House and Senate RV Caucuses to gaining support on a variety of industry initiatives, this critical contribution to the Association’s advocacy efforts leaves a compelling imprint on federal policymakers. This year an updated RVs Move America Economic Impact study will be released on Capitol Hill in conjunction with the House and Senate RV Caucuses. 

Our 2018 advocacy event was the largest ever, with 120 members holding 170 meetings with members of Congress, their staffs and Administration officials. As the impact of RV industry continues to grow, its influence in Washington allows for the future success of the industry and we thank our members for participating and celebrating in these efforts. 

Check out how the RV industry is making a difference on Capitol Hill in the video below.
