RV Shipments Jump in February

RV wholesale shipments to retailers tracked by RVIA rose sharply in February, climbing 31.8% above last month and up 24.2% ahead of the February 2011 monthly total. 

For the first two months of 2012, RV shipments stand at 43,300 units, up 15.2% over the 37,600 units shipped in the same period of 2011. Shipments of towable RVs have improved 17% to 39,200 units while motorhome products have held their own with 4,100 units produced so far this year.

The 24,600 units reported in the latest survey of manufacturers marked the best February total in four years for all RV products. 

On a seasonally adjusted basis, February shipments were at an annual rate of more than 286,000 units, a gain of 12.9% over the January rate. While the annualized rate fluctuates monthly, this current rate is running ahead of the 265,200 unit projection for 2012 shipments by Dr. Richard Curtin in the Spring 2012 issue of RV Roadsigns, RVIA’s quarterly forecast of RV deliveries to RV retailers.

“With economic conditions improving, we are optimistic that shipments will continue to trend upward as we've seen through the first two months of the year." said RVIA President Richard Coon.
