RV Technical Institute

The RV Technical Institute in Elkhart trained about 300 service technicians in 2020 and is expected to certify another 400 to 500 in 2021.

ELKHART — While many industries suffered in 2020, the RV industry was about as busy as ever, taking advantage of the number of people wanting to travel without the risks associated with planes and hotels amid the pandemic.

Even though manufacturers shut down for weeks during the spring, each of the following months for the rest of the year surpassed the same month in 2019. And while December’s shipment numbers have yet to be released, 2020 is already a better year than 2019, with a total of 390,030 wholesale shipments through November.
