Wouldn't it be great to be able to follow RV News and stay tuned to what is happening in our Industry? A good example is the new requirements by the ADA for swimming pool "lifts" for handicapped people.
I've mentioned this law that is being implemented and very few RV'ers have any idea about it! In a nutshell, it is requiring all campgrounds to provide a permanently installed lift at the side of a pool so a handicapped person can get in and out of a swimming pool.
This device was allowed to be portable, but now the ADA has determined that it must be permanently installed. The lift device itself costs between $4,000 to $6,000 - plus installation.
What this means to the smaller family owned RV Parks and Campgrounds is they will probably close their swimming pools to everyone - rather than incur the additional expense of installing a lift device.
Fortunately, the pool "lift" requirement rule just got delayed until Jan 2013!
The purpose of providing News here, is so everyone is "aware" of what is happening in our Industry and how it may impact you!
We also have two excellent news services for the RV Industry listed here with their direct links
No relation - just a great RV B2B Site
This News page will be a daily feed through Google to give you more RV-Insight to the happenings of RV dealers, RV Manufacturers, RV Campgrounds and, of course, RV Owners!
We will also give you the opportunity to be your own "reporter" and tell us something positive (for a change) that might have been missed on the wire services. There will be a comment section after the actual RV News feed for you to use to provide a story and pictures, if you happen to have some!
We hope you enjoy and find this useful!
Do you have a story about something happening in the RV "World"?
