RV Industry Taking Steps to Ensure Its Success for Years to Come

Below is an excerpt from a story on Motorbiscuit.com

Most people have experienced large disruptions to their lives during the pandemic. One silver lining is that some people were able to discover new enjoyable activities. Some people turned to RVing, either buying or renting an RV during 2020. Building on this surge in the popularity of motorhomes and campers, the industry is working to continue its success for years to come.

By September 2020, the RV Industry Association was projecting that shipments would pass 400,000 wholesale units in 2020 and more than 500,000 units in 2021. That would be an estimated 4.5 percent increase from 2019 to 2020, despite shutdowns during the pandemic, and a projected 19.5 percent increase from 2020 to 2021.

“The RV industry has experienced strong consumer growth over the past 10 years, but the recent soar in consumer interest in RVing driven by the COVID-19 pandemic has led to a marked increase in RV shipments to meet the incredibly strong order activity at the retail level,” RV Industry Association President Craig Kirby said. “This new forecast confirms what we have been seeing across the country as people turn to RVs as a way to have the freedom to travel and experience an active outdoor lifestyle while also controlling their environment.”
