Total RV shipments for 2021 ended with a record 600,240 wholesale shipments, as per RV Industry Association’s December 2021 survey of manufacturers.

This surpassed the 2017 total of 504,599 shipments by 19%.

“For decades, the RV industry has been growing, with more and more people turning to RVs as the perfect way to experience the great outdoors. While the demand for RVs has been amplified over the past two years, the pandemic also created several obstacles and challenges for our industry,” said RV Industry Association President & CEO Craig Kirby.

“But through their hard work and innovation, our manufacturers and suppliers are rising to meet these challenges, building a record 600,000 RVs this past year, sending more RVs to dealer lots across North America than ever before, and allowing more people to experience the joys of RVing.”

Last year’s total RV shipments rose 39.5% over the 430,412 units shipped in 2020. Towable RVs, led by conventional travel trailers, closed 2021 over 39.6% against 2020 with 544,028 wholesale shipments. Motorhomes finished 2021 with an increase of 37.8% compared to 2020 with 56,212 units while Park Model RVs finished the year up 5.7% compared to 2020, with 3,923 units shipped.
