rv-pro.com July 2019 • RV PRO • 71 to get back to our design objective, which is four months. So, four months after you place your order, you receive your van. But that's going to require us to expand production. We've sold 40 vans and have delivered 10." Tezza predicts that by the 2020 buying season, ModVan will have this sorted out, and start to sell to dealers in the spring of 2020. "We are spending this time looking into how many orders we can take, how we can expand our production capacity, and how many RVs we could have ready by 2020," he says. Meanwhile, Tezza predicts the future is bright for vehicles like the CV1 – multipurpose vehicles that are smaller and more efficient, are focused on user experiences, and appeal to a wider audience than the typical RV. "The RV industry is a $50 billion industry, but the CV1 isn't actually competing in that number. Most of the people we sell our camper vans to are not interested in buying an RV; they are put off by them," he says. "What we're talking about here is way bigger. It's the $500 billion market currently represented by min- ivans, SUVs and pickups. "We're adding to the RV market rather than trying to compete with other manufacturers for a piece of the pie," he adds. "We're trying to add ... to the pie." The ModVan CV1 comes equipped with the comforts of home, including a sink, a two-burner cooktop and a small refrigerator.
