The projected shipment total this year is 361,400 RVs, which would represent a 3.9 percent increase over the estimated 2014 total.
Richard Coon, president of the Recreation Vehicle Industry Association, told attendees at the National RV Trade Show, “This is a great time to be part of the RV industry. We’ve recovered from the recession with five consecutive years of growth, and we’re going to make it six in a row in 2015.”
The strongest expected growth this year is with travels trailers and fifth-wheels, with a predicted increase of just over 4 percent. Motorhome shipments are expected to go up by 2 percent.
