RV Shipments Continue to Cruise

RV wholesale shipments to retailers tracked by RVIA continued to steadily climb with shipments rising to 246,483 units through August, a gain of 9% over the 226,125 units shipped through the first eight months of 2013.

The monthly total for August shipments was 5.8% above this same month last year at 26,441 units.  As with recent months, towable RVs reflected the largest unit gains while motorhomes grew by the largest percentage gain.  Motorhomes represented 15% of all shipments in the month of August this year, which represents the highest percentage of motorhome shipments in any single month since December of 2007. 

This total also represents an annualized rate of 350,000 units.  This tracks with the latest projections for the market in RVIA’s Fall 2014 issue of RV Roadsigns, the association’s quarterly forecasting newsletter compiled by Dr. Richard Curtin of the University of Michigan. Wholesale RV shipments are expected to reach 349,900 units by the end of 2014, a gain of 9% above the 2013 total of 321,200 units. Shipments are also expected to edge higher in 2015 to 361,700 units.
