Considering RV Industry Statistics: Units Shipped in 2012

Data collected by the RVIA (Recreational Vehicle Industry Association) regarding the units shipped in 2012 indicate optimism for the industry in 2013.

Used RV sales dealers and new dealerships alike will see the 2012 units shipped data as a potential reason for inventory expansion. Some will increase the number of used RV sales offered while others will consider branching out to provide potential buyers with access to additional models, RV types, etc.

Featured facts and statistics from the RVIA 2012 units shipped data follow:

2012 averaged an 8.4% increase in units shipped when compared to the previous year.

Units shipped in 2012 reached approximately 273,600.

In August 2012 alone, RV manufacturers shipped 24,460 RV units which is an increase from the same time in 2011.

Individuals and experts conjecture as to the reasons behind the increased number of RV units shipped in 2012. Many will adamantly believe that they have identified the sole reason behind the shift. In reality, it’s not that cut and dry. There are several reasons that contributed to the overall growth in the industry including:

  1. Economic Growth
  2. Increased Availability of RV Financing
  3. New Designs and RV Features – Positive Consumer Response

The 2012 data is indicative of good things to come in 2013. The RVIA or Recreational Vehicle Industry Association is a national trade association. They represent close to 300 RV manufacturers and RV component/part suppliers. Companies represented produce approximately 98% of all the recreational vehicles built in the US. The RVIA’s relationship with RV manufacturers makes their data collection process extremely manageable. Many industry experts look to data collected through these channels when considering how best to approach company growth and changes within the industry.
