NEW YORK — RV manufacturers have made up more ground since being sideswiped by the Great Recession, and production of the rolling homes is expected to return next year to levels seen before the economic downturn hit, according to ABC News.
Overall recreational vehicle shipments from manufacturers to dealers – a key measure of consumer demand – are expected to increase by nearly 4 percent to 361,400 units in 2015, the Recreation Vehicle Industry Association said Tuesday. ABC News reported shipments totaled 353,400 units in 2007, the last year before sales tanked along with the economy.
ABC News reported shipments to dealers’ lots in 2014 are forecast at 348,000 units, up 8.4 percent from the prior year, the group said. The momentum carried into the last half of this year with the strongest third-quarter shipments since 2007, the group said.
