According to the Recreation Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA), RV
manufacturers expect that shipments to dealers will drop by
approximately 11 percent in 2007. This comes following record numbers
for 2005 and 2006.
RVIA reports that manufacturers expect to ship 341,900 motorhomes
and trailers in 2007, down 11.3 percent from the 385,500 they expect to
ship this year and the 384,000 they shipped in 2005.
The industry’s sales to FEMA and others due to Hurricanes Katrina and Rita had inflated sales recently.
