RV Shipments Continue to Rise through 2018 Inching Slightly Above 2017 Level

RV wholesale shipments are expected to reach 505,900 units by the end of 2018, a slight increase over the 504,599 units shipped in 2017, according to the new quarterly projection from Dr. Richard Curtin in the RV Industry Association’s spring issue of the RV RoadSigns forecasting newsletter.

This anticipated growth would mark the ninth consecutive year of expansion for the RV market, eclipsing the previous record of five years set from 2002-2006.

“RV shipments have experienced incredible gains year after year for nearly a decade, and this new industry data indicates the total number of shipments will continue to hover near or exceed the half-million-mark next year,” said Frank Hugelmeyer, president of the RV Industry Association.
