Elkhart Tops the Nation

April 1st, 2013

RVBusinses informs MHProNews Elkhart County, Indiana led the nation in job growth for the period Sept 2011 to Sept. 2012  for the largest U. S. counties, with 6.9 percent versus the national rate of 1.6 percent, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. While Elkhart hosts several component suppliers to the manufactured and modular housing industry, it is definitely home to MH’s sister industry, the recreational vehicle (RV) business, producing 83 percent of all North American RV’s, says the Recreation Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA). Approximately half of all employment in the county is related to RVs, which saw shipments grow 13.6 percent last year.
