RV Shipments Race Ahead

RV shipments to retailers raced ahead in October, climbing 29.3% ahead of September totals and 16.6% above the same month last year, according to RVIA’s latest monthly survey of RV manufacturers.

Year to date, total shipments have now reached 277,703 units, 12.8% ahead of the 246,228 units shipped in the same ten month period last year.  This latest surge in shipments all but assures totals for the year will be the best in six years and provides an optimistic view of further gains in 2014.

In the month-to-month comparison of October 2013 versus October 2012, double digit gains were reported in all but one vehicle category allowing totals to reach levels not seen in more than eight years.

On a seasonally adjusted basis, October shipments were at an annualized rate nearing 380,000 units.
