Wholesale Shipments Forecast to Grow 30% in 2010

Wholesale RV shipments are expected to total 215,900 units in 2010, according to Dr. Richard Curtin’s latest projection in the Spring 2010 issue of RV Roadsigns, RVIA’s quarterly forecast of RV deliveries to RV retailers.


The gain to 215,900 units would be a 30 percent rise over the 2009 year end total of 165,700 units. It is also a gain of 6 percent over Dr. Curtin’s most recent forecast delivered in Winter, 2009.  Curtin attributes the rising shipment totals seen in late 2009 and early 2010 to the restocking of dealer inventories as well as an improving trend in RV sales to consumers.


“There will be some economic conditions, such as lagging job and income growth and lingering credit constraints, that could slow the pace of progress,” said Curtin. “But, the industry is firmly on the road to recovery with the expected gains in RV shipments next year to be shared by travel trailers as well as motorhomes.”
