Yah. That's the story. Rrrrrrrrrrrright.
...Domestic shipments of RVs to dealers have plummeted 22% in the first five months of this year, compared to the same period last year, after dropping 4% in 2018, according to the Recreational Vehicle Industry Association.It's all Trump's fault.
The RV industry's crisis shows how President Trump's trade war has backfired, hurting the industry he promised to protect.
Tariff-related price hikes have forced RV manufacturers to pass on costs to dealerships, which in turn the American consumer bears the brunt of the tariff, has slowed sales at dealers who are cutting orders and laying off workers....
Or--in RealityLand, where most of us live, one might have noticed the hundreds of unsold RV's piled up in dealer lots LAST SUMMER, which suggests that RV manufacturers just may have over-estimated demand. By about 20% or so.
Wait, wait!!! There is ONE mid-level drone who is certain it's Trump!!
..."The tariff price increases are what tipped the RV business — it started the landslide, no question," said Tom Bond, the materials and purchasing manager at Adnik Manufacturing, an Elkhart-based division of Norco Industries....OK, then. It's all Trump.
Or--just a thought--you could source all that stuff in the USA instead, you rummy.
