RV Industry Association Reports Its Best July On Record

RV Industry Association

The Recreational Vehicle Industry Association is reporting its best July shipment numbers on record. 


According to the association’s monthly survey, manufacturers had shipped more than 44,537 units by the end of the month – a 3.5 percent increase from last July. 


The association says this is the ninth straight month of record RV shipments as people search for pandemic-safe ways to travel and get outside.


“The RVs built by people in our industry have allowed millions of RVers to create lasting memories with friends and family this summer,” RVIA President and CEO Craig Kirby said in a release. “This new shipment report shows the continued demand as more and more people see RVs as the best way to experience the great outdoors and live an active outdoor lifestyle.”
