The Recreational Vehicle Industry Association has released its first-ever economic impact study. It shows the RV industry generates an overall economic impact of nearly $50 billion, $9.5 billion of which comes from Indiana.

The report says the RV industry in Indiana has resulted in $1.5 billion in direct wages and more than 22,000 direct jobs. 

"This economic impact report confirms what we already know: RV manufacturers and suppliers in Indiana are absolutely critical to fueling economic growth and providing jobs to thousands of Hoosiers," said U.S. Senator Joe Donnelly. "I will continue to do all I can to support them and the families they support."
