Most segments of the recreational vehicle market are performing at least as well as last year, with a few segments notably ahead. Starting with travel trailers, standard hitch units saw a pronounced bump in the July-August period, and are otherwise performing similarly to last year. Fifth wheel trailers took off in the spring, and continue their hot streak through the current period to come in ahead of 2018 by 7.6% year to date.
Looking at motorhomes, Class A units started the year strong, then pulled back moderately in the second half. This segment’s year-to-date average is on par with last year, although, comparisons turned negative in recent months. The Class C market continues to moderate, with a relatively strong summer tempered by less positive results earlier and later in the year. Year-to-date, this segment is bringing 1.8% less money than 2018.
Camping trailers and truck campers have been mixed, with camping trailers bringing 1.8% more money year-over-year, and truck campers underperforming last year by 1.5%.
Looking ahead through the end of the year, consumer-focused economic measures should remain strong. As such, expect trends within each segment to continue with typical seasonal movement.
