RV Shipments Continue Positive Trend

RV wholesale shipments were reported at 24,400 units in May in RVIA’s most recent survey of manufacturers, continuing a 10-month positive trend as the RV industry continues its recovery.

May 2010 shipments were 84 percent higher than May of last year.  Overall, towable RVs continue to provide the greatest volume increase while motorhome totals reflect the greatest percentage gains.  On a seasonally adjusted basis, this month’s total shipments presented an annual rate of more than 262,500 units, an increase of 6 percent over last month.

Year to date, total RV shipments have now reached 108,900 units through May this year, up 91.1 percent compared to this same period last year.  All vehicle types have enjoyed growth in shipments this year with type A motorhomes continuing to experience the greatest percentage increase while conventional travel trailers have experienced the greatest unit increase.

The strong May shipment numbers mark a continuation of a months-long trend that reflects the positive RV market outlook provided by Richard Curtin in the latest issue of RV Roadsigns.  Curtin predicted substantial gains over the next two years.  Total shipments are expected to increase to 230,300 units by the end of this year and then rise to 249,700 units in 2011.
