June 2020 RV shipment graph

RV shipments are looking good once again after the shutdown caused by COVID-19 caused a slow spring.

ELKHART — RV shipment data showed clear improvements in June, as the industry benefited from the number of travelers avoiding planes, trains and hotels during the COVID-19 pandemic, an industry organization said.

The RV Industry Association’s survey of wholesale shipments shows that June 2020 was the best month for the industry since October 2018. The industry shipped 40,452 units last month, which is a 10.8 percent increase compared to the 36,525 units shipped in June 2019.

RV shipment numbers from the RVIA show that the improvements in June were mostly due to increases for towables, while motorhome shipments as a whole were down compared to June 2019.
