RV sales up despite gas prices

May 26, 2006

Albany -- These vehicles get lower gas mileage than most anything else on the road, but many people are still buying and traveling in RVs.

It can cost more than 100-dollars to fill up one of these gas guzzlers. The folks who sell RVs say that's a good deal if you consider what you can save by not paying for airplane tickets and hotel rooms.

"RV sales is way up, going up, people still buying motorhomes, it's one of the better ways to see the country," said Jim Thomas of John Bleakley Motorhomes.  

RV travelers say gas prices can sometimes be a factor in how often they travel. These RVs will be on display on Westover Boulevard until Memorial Day.
