This section of the analysis will detail the economic climate, the RV dealer industry, the customer profile, and the competition that the business will face as it progresses through its business operations. Currently, the economic market condition in the United States is in recession. This slowdown in the economy has also greatly impacted real estate sales, which has halted to historical lows. Many economists expect that this recession will continue until mid-2010, at which point the economy will begin a prolonged recovery period.

Among RV dealers, there are 3,000 companies that sell new and used RVs. This is a $10 billion dollar industry that has its most prominent sales centers located in the Southeastern portion of the United States and within the Midwest. Among RV dealers, sales have skyrocketed over the last five years as more baby boomers move into retirement. It is a classic retirement present to purchase an RV for nationwide traveling. Each year, gross receipts have increased in excess of 9.7%. This growth has outpaced the general economic growth by 6% per year. This trend is expected to continue as more baby booms move into their retirement age. However, it is interesting to note that the number of establishments operating in the industry has only increased 6.7% over the same study conducted by the US Economic Census. This is a mature industry, and the expected future growth rate will equal that of the economy in general. As the current economic climate in the United States is difficult, the Company may have issues with top line income.
