January’s survey of manufacturers by the Recreation Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA) showed total RV shipments to retailers jumped 10.6% over this month last year rising to 31,526 units. This was the largest January shipment total in 10 years and the second best start to a year since 1973. Powered by gains in five of the seven major vehicle categories, January wholesale shipment totals represented a seasonally adjusted annualized rate of more than 435,000 units, the highest such monthly reading since September of 1999.

All towable RVs, led by conventional travel trailers, rose 10% in January, reaching a total of 27,248 units which represents 86.4% of all RV shipments. All motorhomes totals grew 10.6% improving to 4,278 units in January, the best start for motorhomes in 11 years.
