Motorhome sales continue to slide

After eight years of record RV sales, the industry has quit tooting its horn due to a recent downturn. Industry leaders believe sales will bounce back next year, but that remains to be seen.

The overall U.S. motorized RV market dipped 19.3% year-over-year for the first two months of 2019 as both Class A and Class C RVs reported double-digit retail sales declines.

According to the latest report from Statistical Surveys Inc. (SSI), Thor Industries Inc. was the motorized sales leader through February with a 38.4% market share, ahead of Forest River Inc. (22.7%) and Winnebago Industries Inc. (11.8%).

Class A motorhome sales were down 11.2% for the two months as Thor topped the segment with a 32.6% market share. REV Recreation Group held the No. 2 spot with a 15.2% share of the market followed by Tiffin Motorhomes Inc. (15%) and Forest River Inc. (14.8%).

Class C sales declined 25.4% through February.

Thanks to for alerting us to this information.

It would be interesting to see these figures by manufacturer rather than over all decline and who had what percent of the market. For example, how much did Thor decline? Tiffin? Etc, just a thought.
