The COVID-19 pandemic has caused a shortage in the recreational vehicle supply, a report said.

Canada’s Prince Edward Island (PEI) RV dealers claim that demand is rising as vacationers are opting to travel closer to home. However, delays in manufacturing have reduced quantity by at least 30 percent.

The report mentioned Norm Bryenton who is the general manager of P.E.I. Home and RV Centre located in Charlottetown. He said that the region is experiencing similar trends happening across North America.

“We are a small family-run dealership, most customers would come into our lot and see this lot typically full of RVs. This year, in early spring, our lot was packed. By the first of July, we were down to three units, total.”

A larger portion of RV sales during the pandemic consists of younger families, he added.

The increase in demand is especially strong for compact RVs which are towable by smaller rides.

Bryenton anticipates that supplies will remain limited next year.
