DiPietro Rocks in Elkhart, Indiana this week . . .
I got the easy assignment this week – sitting home with Covid while John had to do double-duty at the annual Elkhart Dealer Open House. He is working almost non-stop covering everything that manufacturers are showcasing to dealers this year. We will see some of these new and exciting products at the Boston RV & Camping Expo, January 13-16.

Brinkley RV, a new company from the original founders of Grand Design RV, showed their first prototype of a luxury mid-profile fifth-wheel.
John even found time to co-emcee the RVWA breakfast meeting on Tuesday morning. John and Jessica Rider, Managing Director of RVWA entertained a large audience of industry women, and men, who are fully supportive of the RV Women’s Association and their many programs.
John also spent time with our media friends at RV Business and Woodall’s Campground Magazine, comparing notes and discussing the highlights of the week-long event that is the highlight of the RV industry each September.
