Imagine if all the manufacturers paid close attention to our discussions regarding all the modifications we make to our rigs - how much and how quickly would the industry evolve?
I can hardly wait to see what the next generation of RV’ing will look like when it comes along.
The "RV" industry as a whole has been offering such upgrades, it's just the small glass market is behind (But not completely their fault) ....... Many large Rv manufactures have offered these upgrades for years.
The reason I say not completely the glass manufactures fault is, molded glass travel trailers as a whole have always been for the bare bones type campers. (That is changing somewhat) Granted there are several even more bare bones options out there.
The fiberglass market was for a different type of consumer. Not made for people looking for the luxury's/amenities of life to invade their camping time. But as with all good things, the world of glass is changing. So as more of us that like to rv and want more of the amenities/luxury items along with us on our journey. The more manufactures are going to have to respond.
It's only just now becoming apparent to people that they can actually "rv" with in an egg. (HELLO) and as gas prices, the economy changes, Eggs will become even more popular. But the segment of the growth has probably been more towards those of us who choose to rv in a smaller unit but still want some amenities of the larger rvs.
So as the wants and needs of the egg consumer is changing, the glass manufactures will begin to follow suit.
Having only been in the egg world a few years, I can't say for sure but would assume that more experienced egg'ers have seen a huge change in who their fellow egg camper
is as well as seen the product itself evolve.
