Thu Oct 27, 2016

Park model RV builders shipped 288 units in September, a boost of 11.6 percent compared to the same month last year, the Recreation Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA) reported.

While September was the fourth month in a row to see a boost over last year, the total is still 1.2 percent lower than shipments to date for 2015, thanks to a slump from February through May. So far this year 2,865 park model RVs have been shipped, compared to 2,900 by this point last year.

For the month, Arizona received the largest number of park models, followed by Texas, California and New Jersey.
