Both shops I been to lately had almost no inventory, and a recent price hike has happened, supply and demand.

Boats and boating have been crazy since April.

Used boats are selling for 50% over value.

I had a friend tell me RVs are doing the same thing.

Yepper, my son-in-law works in the RV industry specifically in the high end motor home division and he said their company across all divisions canít keep up with the orders. Apparently people donít want to really stay in a motel/hotel but my trip over to Ravenna Ohio a couple of weeks ago appeared to have most rooms booked.

For a ďstay-at-homeĒ pandemic there was lots of people out and on the road. I believe people are tired of being confined.

Car dealers here have the lowest inventory levels I've seen... don't forget Covid shut down a lot of those types of industries..... maybe will change shortly as I understand most are now up and running.
Demand for cars and real estate is up significantly..... don't know about bikes, but the shops around here seem to have quite a few of the faster sellling ones.
