Phoenix, AZ (Vocus) April 29, 2010 — Pedata RV Center sees surge in snowbird business. Most RV parks and resorts that cater to snowbirds are reporting higher occupancies this winter in comparison to last year (National Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds). Some are attributing the surge to economic conditions while others are attributing the surge to savvy campground/RV resort owners knowing their market and attracting the snowbird group with a wide variety of entertainment options.
Pedata RV Center’s Gerard Pedata responds, “It’s good to see more snowbirds this winter filling up RV parks. RV park owners and operators are getting much more creative with their activities catering to the baby boomers.”
Economical factors suggested as reasons for the surge include:
1. Strong Canadian dollar
2. Stronger economy
3. Moderate fuel prices
4. Improving stock market
Creative activities/entertainments often offered at popular RV campgrounds/RV resorts that draw the snowbird crowd include:
1. Theatrical and/or choral groups
2. Potter, sewing, silver smithing, ceramics, oil painting, etc.
3. Pilates, tai chi, yoga, dance classes, etc.
4. Lawn bowling, softball, volleyball, etc.
5. Classes on politics, music, etc. taught by college professors
RV Campground and Resort visitors appear willing to pay higher prices for campground hosted events. Many cite their desire to stay at an all inclusive location instead of paying a lower price for their lodging and paying money into the surrounding area for entertainment. RV campgrounds/resorts are far more likely to hire professional entertainment for on-site programming than they have been in years past.
Pedata RV Center sees an increase in snowbird business every winter, but has noticed a drastic increase in the number of snowbirds filtering through the Valley this winter in comparison to the last few years. Pedata RV Center sells RVs with their full inventory available for viewing online 24 hours a day (Class A, Class C, Class B, Fifth Wheel, etc). They also provide a wide variety of industry specific information to ensure that consumers in the market for an RV are aware of the various options and features available in the industry.
