Surging fuel costs aren’t stopping drivers from driving a new recreational vehicle, a report said.

While many might be trying to avoid a trip to the gas station at all costs, there were plenty of people at Graham Arena (Minnesota) on Friday last week to check out the boats and RVs on exhibit during the Home and Lifestyle Show.

The organizers told a local report that business has been so good that they’re running an entire event for the first time in two years.

“It seems like most of the younger generation has gotten into the outdoors the last two or three years with COVID, and so we’re seeing a lot of new people into the marketplace, anything outdoors,” Herb Howard of Universal Marine and RV told KIMT.

Howard said that the soaring prices of gas haven’t stopped the growth of sales since the beginning of this pandemic.

“We’re seeing a whole new generation of young people getting into camping, fishing, boating, kayaking.” Howard continued, “the gas price increase hasn’t affected it, not one bit.”

He said that gas prices have always been a major issue during his 22 years in business. Still, he anticipates RV sales to keep growing as more people learn to appreciate nature.
