(Press Release) In the February survey of manufacturers, RV wholesale shipments to retailers accelerated to 35,929 units this year, a 13.9% increase over last month and a 12.1% increase over this same month one year ago. Increased employment and greater consumer discretionary income have been the driving force behind recent consumer spending increases lifting RV shipments totals along the way. This month’s total was the best February in 39 years and represents an annualized rate of more than 425,000 units.  This would be the best such annualized rate since late 2005.

Through the first two months this year shipments have reached 67,455 units, an 11.4% gain over this same two month period last year.  Continuing a trend established a number of months ago towable RVs have increased by the largest unit totals while motorhomes have reported the greatest percentage gains over the previous year.
