MINONG, WI -- With outdoor recreational activities and road trips becoming more popular during the pandemic, Link RV Direct in Minong, WI, has experienced a surge in RV sales.
Mike Babcock, director of RV, said sales for the month of May were double compared to last year.
In the business' 16 years of operation, Babcock said this has been the best year yet.
"The way people vacation has changed," Babcock said. "They're canceling their Europe trips; they're canceling their hotel trips. And what better way to go still take your family on vacation than in an RV?"
Babcock said the uptick in sales was a surprise during a time when many businesses have faced hardships.
The RV dealership says it will maintain round-the-clock sanitizing during the pandemic.
