Every year about this time, the RV Industry hosts an open house in Elkhart, Indiana, the RV Capital of the World. About 85% of all American RVs are made in the area.
RV dealers from around the country attend the event to check out all the new model RVs and to place orders with manufacturers.Â But because of the pandemic this yearâ€™s event was cancelled.

The editors of RV Business Magazine (and website) jumped into action by creating a 2021 RV Model Year Guide, which it hoped would help dealers â€“ as well as consumers â€“ learn what was available in the newest RV models rolling off the assembly lines. The result is a 142-page reference that details hundreds of RV makes and models. Photos and floor plan illustrations are included.
â€śItâ€™s an approach â€“ reaching out to the wider industry as well as consumers with an array of new RV model year debuts â€“ that we never would have thought of if we hadnâ€™t been faced with a colossal obstacle like COVID-19 and if a number of front line trade groups, consumer clubs and website operators hadnâ€™t helped us out by posting or digitally circulating the Guide section,â€ť said RVB Publisher Sherm Goldenberg.
