Membership in the RV Industry Association provides companies with access to research, resources, and reports unavailable anywhere else. But even more importantly, membership means having the expertise of a talented group of standards, government affairs, research, and marketing professionals who serve as an extension of your own staff. Here we will share how to get the most out of your membership by first detailing what makes up the RV Industry Association and then explaining the specific ways you can maximize your membership.
The RV Industry Association is the leading trade voice of the $114 billion dollar RV industry, representing approximately 450 manufacturers and component and aftermarket suppliers who together produce 98 percent of all RVs made in the United States, and approximately 60 percent of RVs produced worldwide. It is the collective voice of these members that make the association so impactful and beneficial to each member.
There are three main pillars that make up the Association:
- Association Signature Programs: Consisting of self-regulation and industry standards, state, federal, and international advocacy, events, media relations, and market data insights and trends.
- Go RVing: Reaching millions of potential new RV consumers each year, Go RVing is charged with attracting new consumers to RVing and conducting consumer research and insights. Go RVing’s research and innovative campaigns ensure that the appeal of RVing is shared with a growing and diverse audience that is primed to be your future customer.
- RV Technical Institute: With the mission to improve the RV Consumer experience and grow the pool of trained RV service technicians, the RV Technical Institute has the only industry-wide certification and is the gold standard when it comes to RV tech training.
These three parts of the Association work together to promote and protect the RV industry and our members.
While there is a lot of information and content that can be accessed without logging in as a member on the RV Industry Association website, to fully access the tremendous amount of resources, research, and reports a member login is required.
