As more and more Americans work to decrease their daily consumption, the benefits of downsizing both on the environment and on their wallets is becoming hard to ignore. But taking the leap into a smaller living space comes with its own unique set of challenges like having to eliminate unnecessary junk and opt for smaller appliances and furniture. But tiny home and RV residents shouldn’t have to sacrifice quality for size, and Stampede and Furrion wholeheartedly agree.
“With approximately 1 million Americans living in RV’s full-time, an aging generation of Baby Boomers and an emerging generation of families are choosing to downsize and live in compact living environments that empower them to hit the road and see the country through the windows of their custom designed recreational vehicle (RV) on vacation,” Stampede President & CEO Kevin Kelly said.
“Since 2005, RV ownership has grown from 7.9 million households to over 10 million today,” he continued. “We believe that the North American outdoor and mobile living market is going to continue grow over the next decade, creating a huge opportunity for manufacturers and resellers who can meet the growing consumer demand for custom designed AV and appliance solutions that enable them to live the way they want to live in smaller places with more time spent outdoors and on the road — connected to their technology, devices and appliances.”
Furrion offers a wide range of compact-living consumer products to make any RV feel like home including outdoor televisions, consumer electronics, solar energy solutions, and kitchen appliances—some of which are currently on display at CES and will be available exclusively through Stampede.
“Teaming up with Stampede marks a significant expansion of our long-term sales and market development programs,” says Furrion Co-Founder and CEO, Aaron Fidler. “We have worked hard to design, engineer, and manufacture the next-generation of innovative consumer products that offer new value to customers across the traditional recreational vehicle, home, hotel and marine markets. Stampede’s business development team and reseller network will help to take these new products to the broadest range of markets and grow our consumer business.”
