RV Shipments Maintain Strong Momentum

RV wholesale shipments tracked by RVIA totaled the best February in 39 years at 35,929 units, a 12.1% increase over February 2015 and a 13.9% increase over January’s monthly total.

Increased employment and greater consumer discretionary income have been the driving force behind recent consumer spending increases, lifting the cumulative total for RV shipments through the first two months of the year to 67,455 units. This marks an 11.4% rise over the 60,539 units shipped during the same time period last year.

Continuing a trend established a number of months ago, towable RVs have increased by the largest unit totals while motorhomes have reported the greatest percentage gains over the previous year. For the year, towable RV shipments have increased to 58,391 units on 10.8% growth while motorhomes have gained 15.9% to 9,064 units.

On a seasonally adjusted basis, February RV shipments were at an annualized rate of more than 425,000 units, the best rate since late 2005.
