The Recreation Vehicle Industry Association commissioned an Economic Impact Study on the RV industry, released on June 7, 2016.

Folding Trailers Building Niche in Industry

Mon Mar 20, 2017

The small A-frame foldout trailer will never capture a huge slice of the recreation vehicle market, however, those who have them, love them.

Over the past decade — in large part due to consumer demand for more fuel-efficient trailers that could be towed easily with a typical family vehicle — RV manufacturers have been turning out a greater variety of smaller, lightweight rigs, according to a story by the Farm Forum.

These lighter towables, in combination with a stronger economy, has resulted in eight solid years of RV industry recovery since a low point during the 2008 recession, according to the Recreational Vehicle Industry Association, an RV trade group.
