The dollar exchange rate has been up at around a 1/3 more for us for a number of years now. That adds a huge premium to RV buyers in Canada. We bought our TT when the Can and US dollars were close to par. Today that would have added going on $10K Can on our purchase.

Seeing that most RVs are built in the US, are sales in Canada down much? Are dealers here eating some of that or passing it all onto buyers? When I drive by our local RV dealer, I see a LOT of shiny new RVs out on their lot. Maybe they're just languishing and not getting sold?

Having bought a used 3/4 ton truck in June, what we learned is that a lot of used trucks are being bought by US buyers due to the exchange rate and good used ones are harder to find here now.

Locally people seem to buying RV's and prices seem reasonable. Lately it is getting harder to get a last minute campsite, now you have to plan a little further in advance. Couple of years ago you could decide to go camping Friday morning and just go, not now???

Depends on what you consider Booming

the price of rv's in canada isnt the US + exchange, they have seperat pricing structures. yes we get ripped off up here nomater what they exchange rate is, same as normal vehicles and almost every other consumer goods. but I bought a new one 3 years ago and I keep seeing them fly off the lots out here so must still be selling good.
