RV Shipment Post Best August Since 1977

RV wholesale shipments to retailers tracked by RVIA rebounded strongly in August after a lower-than-expected July report.  Monthly shipment totals for August were 35,946 units, a rise of 26.8% over last month and 31.5% ahead of August 2015.  This was the largest August total since 1977.

Year-to-date totals have reached 290,582 units, an increase of 13% over the 257,089 units shipped during the same eight-month period last year.  Motorhomes posted that strongest percentage growth (16.8%) with 37,128 units shipped.  The towable category boasts the larger volume increase with shipments reaching 253,454 units on 12.5% growth.

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.
