RV shipments to retailers totaled 40,740 units in March, up 13.9% over the previous month and ahead of this same month last year by 11.5%, based on the Recreation Vehicle Industry Association’s (RVIA) latest monthly survey of manufacturers.

This was the largest single monthly total for all RVs since March 2006. Seasonally adjusted, the March total this year represented an annualized rate of more than 420,000 units, the highest run rate in more than 10 years.

Year-to-date, first quarter shipments have now climbed to 108,195 units, 11.5% ahead of this same period last year. On a seasonally adjusted basis, first-quarter shipments were running at an annualized rate of more than 430,000 units, 12.2% ahead of the pace reported for this same period last year.

Both towable and motorhome categories were reported at higher totals than this same three month period in 2015 with a greater unit increase for all towable RVs, largely conventional travel trailers, while all motorhomes improved by a higher percentage total, led by Class C motorhomes.
