Five Percent Growth Projected for RV Shipments

Wholesale RV shipments are expected to total 265,200 units in 2012, according to Dr. Richard Curtin’s latest projection in the Spring 2012 issue of RV Roadsigns, RVIA’s quarterly forecast of RV deliveries to RV retailers.

The gain to 265,200 units would be a 5.1% increase over the 2011 year-end total of 252,300 units. Curtin says growth will be driven by gains in conventional and fifth wheel travel trailers with motorhomes also posting a small increase due to improving economic conditions.

“RV sales will benefit from stronger economic growth, increased job opportunities, and easing consumer credit,” Curtin said. “Importantly, the private sector will be responsible for the moderate rebound as the growth rate in spending by federal, state and local governments will decline.”

RV Roadsigns is published quarterly and available to RVIA members at this password-protected link.
