RV shipments slip for fourth consecutive month in November 2018

After running at break-neck speed for the past several years, it appears the RV industry is tapping its brakes. For the fourth consecutive month, shipments from factories dropped compared to the same month a year prior, declining 20.3 percent in November, according to the latest figures released by the RV Industry Association.

But at the same time, Grand Rapids-based Statistical Surveys reported that sales of most models remained somewhat ahead of last year’s blistering pace through October, suggesting that dealers might simply have been clearing out excess inventory over the past few months.
