Technological Advances Improve Construction And Efficiency For Outdoor Activities


Technology is making outdoor recreational activities better and less expensive, according to industry experts.

Every year, people come to Kearney's RV, Boat and Sport show to see the newest innovations in boating and camping.

Organizers say technology has advanced the construction of RV's and campers with stronger materials that are lighter to transport, while bigger outboard boat motors offer more bang for the buck.

"We hear about technology all the time, primarily in electronics, but what's interesting is that technology goes with campers, goes with all the outboard motors in boats," said show promoter John Gerber. "They're being built better, they perform better, and are more economical."

Organizers of the show say these technological advances also make these products more durable.
