The Recreation Vehicle Industry Association’s (RVIA) most recent survey of manufacturers shows that RV wholesale shipments slowed in July with total shipments down 9.1% from July 2010 totals and off 32.6% from last month. While July is usually lower for shipments than June, due largely to the ending of the summer season and effects of model year change-over, shipments in July this year were also impacted by concerns for a slowing economy and uncertainty of future government policies, according to RVIA. Year-to-date, RV shipments are running 4% ahead of the same time last year (162,000 units through July 2011 as compared to 155,800 units through July 2010).
