We have always tried to keep up with technology which has really paid off because we streamlined workflow and cut costs right as the economy started to get really tough.

Everyone in the RV industry has been hit hard by this economy and the tough times have been a lesson in survival.
The RV industry peaked in 2006 with 390,500 units shipped according to RIVA (Recreation Vehicle Industry Association) but has been in decline since then dropping 9.5% to 353,400 units in 2007 and 32.9% in 2008 from the previous year to 237,000 total units shipped.
"When we started to experience a slow down in 2007, we started looking for ways to stay on top. We have found that you really do have to be sharp and malleable survive," says Clint Ethington of Pedata RV Center. "We have always tried to keep up with technology which has really paid off because we streamlined workflow and cut costs right as the economy started to get really tough."
Ethington credits staying on top of internet marketing and implementing ESF (Electronic Sales and Followup), an Internet application, as tools that have helped the RV dealer stay current. "It's pretty interesting what the internet can do for a business these days."
