The RV industry is anticipating 2022 to experience a surge in demand from consumers, which means Indiana‘s huge RV industry will continue to be active. According to the RV Industry Association (RVIA), production of motorized and towable units this year will reach 613,000. This is an increase of 1.9 percent over 2021.

RVIA Spokesperson Monika Geraci shared in an interview with local report the factors that are driving the demand.

“Obviously, the pandemic has had an influence. But when we’re asking what was the [main] reason you bought it, it’s the love of road trips. It’s wanting to spend time outdoors,” said Geraci.

She said that while restrictions on travel forced some families to buy an RV, a customer survey revealed that it was not the top issue.

“It was third from the bottom. It wasn’t the driving reason for people to be buying RVs,” said Geraci. “People really have rediscovered the great outdoors since the onset of the pandemic. There’s been this reset in people’s just what they value, and getting outdoors is one of those things that has really become a priority for people.”

The surge in U.S. recreational vehicle sales has brought about the highest annual production record for the sector. The trade association doesn’t think that the demand will slow anytime in the near future.
