RV Shipments Jump 13% in 2012

The RV markets saw significant growth in 2012 with wholesale shipments finishing the year at 285,749 units, an increase of 13.2% over the 2011 total of 252,407 units, according to RVIA’s December survey of RV manufacturers.

This is the highest annual total for RV shipments since 2007 when 353,400 units were produced.

Towable units ended the year at 257,551 units, also a 13.2% gain over the 227,577 towable RVs shipped in 2011. Motorhomes had their best year since 2008 with totals climbing to 28,198 units, an increase of 13.6% over the 24,830 motorhomes shipped last year.

The 285,749 total also bettered the year-end projection of 277,300 units provided by Dr. Richard Curtin in the Winter 2012 issue of RV Roadsigns, RVIA’s quarterly forecasting newsletter.

“The industry was able to capitalize on an improving economy and strengthening consumer confidence to post substantial gains in 2012,” said RVIA President Richard Coon. “We anticipate this moderate growth continuing in the coming year.”
