RV Technical Institute coming to Elkhart

An RV Technical Institute is coming to Elkhart.

It’s part of an initiative being funded by RV trade associations with the goal of bringing more trained technicians into the industry.

An initial $10 million has been set aside to start the headquarters and training facility in the RV capital of the world, according to RV Business.

A recruitment campaign will also begin in hopes of attracting new technicians so that local businesses can shorten RV repair times for customers.

With the industry now selling more than a half million RVs a year, officials say increasing service efficiency is of the utmost importance.
