Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- About 8,000 people are visiting Louisville this week for the 54th National RV Trade Show.

The industry's largest RV whole sale event is back at the Kentucky Exposition Center. It runs until Thursday.

"The RV industry is on a roll," said Bill Baker, senior director of communications at RVIA.. "We are going to end this year at 420,000 units. That's a big jump over the 370,000 units of last year and looking forward into 2017, we expect industry shipments will top 430,000 units. That would be a really sizable increase. One of the best in 40 years."

Organizers say smaller, light-weight RV's are a popular purchase this year.
