US Demand for Recreational Vehicles to Reach $16.6 Billion in 2021


Cleveland, OH, September 15, 2017 — US demand for recreational vehicles (RVs) is forecast to reach $16.6 billion in 2021, according to Recreational Vehicles: United States, a report recently released by Freedonia Focus Reports. Rising disposable personal income levels will support gains. In addition, sales stand to benefit from population growth among the age cohorts that are most likely to buy RVs.

Travel trailers are expected to account for the majority of value gains and remain the largest product segment over the forecast period. The availability of a broad range of models across many size and price points will boost sales as the industry makes efforts to expand the appeal of towable recreational vehicles to a broader demographic.

These and other key insights are featured in Recreational Vehicles: United States. This report forecasts US recreational vehicle demand and shipments in US dollars at the manufacturers’ level to 2021. Total demand is segmented by product in terms of:
