Be most accounts, the 2023 RV Industry Power Breakfast, which took place Thursday, May 11, at the RV/MH Hall of Fame in Elkhart, Ind., was one of the best ever in the 12-year history of the industry-wide program facilitated by RVBusiness.
The event once again featured a slate of notables, including Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb and nationally recognized economist Peter Morici. The event also included an industry panel featuring RV Industry Association (RVIA) Executive Vice President James Ashurst and RV Dealers Association (RVDA) President Phil Ingrassia, who will be joined by their respective association chairmen, Forest River Inc.’s Kevin McArt and central Indiana dealer Nathan Hart of Walnut Ridge Family RV Sales. Also addressing the breakfast crowd was KOA President and CEO Toby O’Rourke, who challenged the RV industry, as part of the “camping ecosystem,” to become obsessed with improving the customer experience.
