Camping trailers and truck campers led the RV industry in terms of value growth year-over-year, as younger buyers enter the market in greater numbers. Camping trailers brought about 4% more money in the May-June period of 2018 compared to 2017, while truck campers brought about 7% more.
In the larger segments, standard hitch trailers performed on par with the 4-year average, recovering from early 2017 but still about 10% behind the 2015 peak. Fifth wheel trailers performed similarly to 2017, leaving the segment about 18% behind the 2015 peak.
Moving over to motorhomes, Class A and Class C units enjoyed a seasonal bump. Class As are bringing about 3% more money than 2017, but are well off their 2015 peak. Class Cs look relatively strong, with only the most recent period showing any notable decrease compared to previous years.
With the job market continuing to improve and discretionary income increasing, the demand outlook for motorhomes and campers is positive.
