As a benefit to members and the overall RV industry, the RV Industry Association maintains handbooks that provide greater depth and detail regarding the adopted codes and standards for manufacturing RVs and Park Model RVs. These handbooks provide key information about the manufacturing requirements set forth in the industry’s adopted standards and the RV Industry Association’s enforcement positions.  They include drawings, schematics, tables and supplementary text.  Moreover, they serve as excellent training references for manufacturing and production personnel. 

The handbooks are maintained by the RV Industry Association’s Standards Steering Committee and its technical subcommittees, with input from state agencies that have RV and Park Model RV enforcement programs,  to address updated editions of the  standards, new or changes in products and technologies or revised enforcement positions  Companies and individuals can submit suggested changes by completing the Formal Proposal to Amend the Standards Handbook and submitting it to the RV Industry Association’s Standards Department.

Additional copies of the handbook can be purchased in the RV Industry Association store.
