Default New stuff afoot at ARV

Surprised none of you have commented on this development at ARV. It's going to have a pop-top.

.

James of FitRV said something new is coming,
but he wasn't privy to saying what.

Good quality pop-top van could sway me to contact Advance RV.

At Sportsmobile, the powered pop-top adds about $10,000 and is only available on the low roof Sprinter (ie. you pay more for less van). Of course, it greatly restricts the bathroom, shower, upper cabinet storage, etc.. It will be interesting to see what ARV does with it though.

They built essentially a sports/recreational package on a 144" WB Sprinter for the first time for a customer. Maybe they now see the potential market.

I invested in a 14 foot high door garage condo. I don't need a poptop now.

The outlook for the US economy looks very promising, already 3 trillion $ gain since the election in the stock market which equates to more disposable income for retirees. More people working and growing. Good times for the RV market ahead. The positive cycle has started.

Hymer has one overseas... Recon does this... GTRV... Sportsmobile... and a couple more that I have seen online.

Lots of companies jumping on the Metris for a pop-top conversion. A bit too small for me with the dog... I did consider it.
