Frank Hugelmeyer, president of the RV Industry Association said, “But the RV industry hasn’t peaked, and we fully expect that shipments above half-a-million units shipped will become the new normal in years to come.”
2017 RV Sales
HALF A MILLION shipments of RVs! That can only mean that RV sales are increasing! Whoever thought the industry was dying is clearly wrong. The RV Industry Association started taking statistics of sales about 40 years ago. The statistic for wholesale shipments has surpassed half a million with a total of 504,599 units for 2017. From 2016 to 2017, that’s a 17.2% increase. 2016 sold 430,691 units from manufacturers to RV dealers. But that’s not the only thing that has increased. For the month of December, 36,227 units were shipped which is a 9.9% increase over December 2016. It is also the best December the RV industry has had since recording these stats. RV sales are truly booming.
“It’s in tribute to all involved in our industry – from those who serve key roles on the manufacturing floors to the customers who visit dealer lots – that we’re able to announce today’s record-setting RV shipments,” said Frank Hugelmeyer
