A new report shows that shipments from RV manufacturers are increasing, despite supply chain issues. It is a good sign for RVers looking forward to hitting the road as summer approaches.
According to a 2022 report by the RV Industry Association, manufacturers determined that RV shipments to dealerships increased 11.5% compared to this time last year.
According to a report, the increasing shipments reported is a good sign for people involved in the RV industry, many of whom had to adjust to a new normal like supply chain shortages.
Arizonans use RVs to have a much-needed getaway from triple-digit temperatures during the summer. Fortunately, for dealers like Rowley White RV in Mesa, the supply chain will be in their favor, according to a report.
“It is just kind of explaining the situation at this point. At first, it was difficult, and people didn’t understand, but as they deal with this everywhere they go, they realize, so that helps, and as things come back around, we are fulfilling those orders,” said Brad White, owner of Rowley White RV.
At Discount RV and Auto Sales, owner John Tennis said he’d seen an increase in consumers looking for used RVs.
“The bigger RV places, there is no inventory, so people are coming from all over, looking for RVs. There is no supply,” he said.
He adds that it’s still hard to get his hands on inventory, but all that may change as the supply chain bounces back.
