“This is a great time to be in the industry,” said Faulkner when RV Dealer News spoke with him upon the news of his induction earlier this year. “We’re going to have unbelievable growth in the future. … For the next 20 years at least, it’s going to be tremendous. That’s why I’m still in this business. I’m having too much fun to leave.”
Located in Elkhart, Indiana, the RV/MH Hall of Fame is now comprised of 409 members.
