The RV Industry Association has released its 2019 industry profile, which provides a detailed look at RV production and shipment statistics as well as including historical comparisons of shipment date and unit dollar volume. The report also breaks down production by product type and shipment destination.
The RVIA highlights some key findings from the report, which include:
- Indiana overwhelmingly continues to lead the country in RV production, with nearly 83 percent of all RVs in the U.S. and Canada being manufactured there.
- Texas remains the top destination for RV shipments, receiving 10.3 percent of total wholesale shipments followed by California (8 percent), Florida (5.7 percent), and Ohio and Michigan (both at 4.4 percent).
- Wholesale RV shipments finished at 406,000 units for the year with a retail value of $17.5 billion. Despite the 16 percent fall in wholesale shipments, 2019 still finished as the fourth-best year on comparable record for the RV industry.
The RVIA says that for the first time, data focusing on Park Model RV shipments for 2019, as well as historical information back to 2010, is included in the report.
