It is amazing what daily habits can say about a person. For example, chewing on a straw while drinking soda can be a sign of repressed anger, while rolling eyes to the side means that person is lying. Profiles have gone a step further and can actually guess someone’s personal details of the things they own.
One of the most interesting aspects of this type of guesswork is what RVs say about the people who own them. For instance, if you are an RV owner, you’re probably around 48 years of age, married with at least two children, and have an average household income of $47,000.
That is a significant amount of information from coming from something as ordinary as owning an RV. That is mostly general information, and can get more specific with added information. For example, if someone owns an RV, it has been said that they are probably living in Florida, Georgia, Ohio, North Carolina, British Columbia or the areas near the borders of these states.
Noted industry authority Moix RV Supercenter says RV dealers gather these numbers of all of their transactions to get a better idea of who their customers are, and what they can do to offer better products and customer service.
In gathering the average age and family structure of RV owners, dealers can stock on the vehicle types that most appeal to them during the seasonal vacation months. Those months being April, June, July, August, and September, which comprise the summer season, where school is out and holidays abound.
The practice is a common one, but restricted to the dealings customers have with their dealers. Nobody is taking a close look at your private files to get this information. So, do not be surprised if you find something on the RV lot that looks perfect for your family, because odds are it is.
