Jul 9, 2024

Curt Richardson, the RV Industry Association’s Director of Inspection Services, was recently featured in RV PRO Magazine’s 2024 RVeterans issue. 

Throughout his 35 years (and counting) on the Standards department, Curt has played an instrumental role in overseeing inspections and tracking RV safety rules and regulations. He is a dedicated, welcoming Association leader who is always willing to share his wealth of knowledge on industry standards. 

Read Curt’s profile in the latest RVeterans issue below:

“As Director of Inspection Services for the RV Industry Association, Curt Richardson manages and supports a team of full-time, in-field standards inspectors, the section program and all standards committee activities. 

He represents the industry as a principal committee member on both CMP-7 for the National Electric Code and the National Fire Protection Association 1192. Curt manages the inspection services provided to the RV Industry Association member manufacturers, which includes monitoring the team’s performance quality, reviewing inspection reports, managing administrative documents, providing continual training and technical support, and developing and administering career improvement incentives. 

Curt has been a constant in the RV Industry Association Standards Department for over 35 years, doing everything from plant inspections to directing the updating of over 500 safety-related RV standards through the many standard setting approval processes. 

His peers describe him as never too busy to help a member with a question or explain a standard. They say that his dedication to constant betterment of industry standards has led to improved safety across the entire RV industry. 

Over the past five years, the RV Industry Association Standards team has seen transitions as veteran team members retired. Curt has taken on the responsibility of supporting and mentoring every new team member to ensure a smooth transition and transfer of knowledge. 

His efforts have not gone unnoticed, as his coworkers describe him as ‘excellent at his job’ and ‘one of the kindest people’ they know. They report he genuinely wants to help people and works hard to answer every inquiry he receives the same day he receives it.”

The RV Industry Association’s Standards department is its greatest member benefit. With its team of professional, full-time inspectors, the Standards department promotes the enhancement of safety by monitoring adherence to the standards adopted by the Board of Directors for the construction of RVs and Park Model RVs. The team conducts more than 2,000 inspections of member company RV manufacturing plants annually.

Congratulations, Curt, and thank you for your incredible contributions to the RV industry!
