For the second straight month, and the fourth time this year RV shipments are up compared to 2019. In fact July 2020 outperformed July 2019 by more than 53 percent. Industry experts believe the huge surge is because more people are seeing motor homes and trailers as a safer COVID friendly alternative to flying and staying in hotels.
Monica Geraci with the RV Industry Association tells The Elkhart Truth that there is even an outside possibility that overall 2020 shipments could catch up to last year, even with almost the six-eight weeks of lost production.
Officials say fifth-wheel’s continue to see the biggest jump in year over year shipments.
