RV Shipments Up Eleven Percent Through July

RV wholesale shipments to retailers continued to gain ground with totals through July reaching 254,636 units, up 10.8%, according to RVIA’s monthly survey of manufacturers.

Motorhomes have enjoyed the largest percentage increases this year seeing a 16% rise to 32,337 units.  Meanwhile the towable segment, led by conventional travel trailers, have produced the largest unit gains, reaching 222,299 units on 10.1% growth

 Seasonally adjusted, shipments through July this year were at an annualized rate of more than 408,000 units.

On a monthly basis, RV shipments were 4.6% ahead of last July at 28,350 units. The monthly total was down from last month as all vehicle categories reported fewer shipments than in June; however, a slowing in July shipments is not historically unusual.

RVIA’s outlook for the RV market projects that RV shipments will end the year above 405,000 units and increase again in 2017 to 411,000 units.
