“In recent years, we’ve seen RV buyers get younger and more diverse. September is an exciting month for the RV industry as many manufacturers debut new units and features to appeal to these new RV buyers,” said RVIA president and CEO Craig Kirby. “With RVs available at nearly every price point and with features that allow people to work from the road and get off-grid, RVing remains one of the most affordable ways for people and families to travel and make lifelong memories.”
Towable RVs, led by conventional travel trailers, ended the month down 14.6% from last August with 23,941 shipments. Motorhomes finished the month down 28.3% compared to the same month last year with 4,130 units.
Park Model RVs finished August down 14.8% compared to the same month last year, with 380 wholesale shipments.
