RV Shipments Up 11% In First Quarter

The good news for the RV market keeps coming with wholesale RV shipments climbing 11.5% through the first quarter of the year to 108,195 units, according to RVIA’s March survey of RV manufacturers.

Monthly RV shipments to retailers totaled 40,740 units in the month of March this year, up 13.9% over the previous month and ahead of this same month last year by 11.5%. This was the largest single monthly total for all RVs since March 2006.  Seasonally adjusted, the March total this year represented an annualized rate of more than 420,000 units, the highest run rate in more than 10 years.

Both towable and motorhome categories were reported at higher totals than this same three month period in 2015. Towable RVs reached 94,154 units on 10.6% growth and were led by conventional travel trailers, which jumped by 14.6% to 70,344 units.  Motorhomes rose to 14,041 units, a 17.4% increase. Type C motorhomes were up 24.7% to 6,965 units and type A motorhomes increased 11.2% to 6,171 units.
