The demand for the travel trailer and motorhome never decreased. Even in the midst of the low sales that defined 2009 there was high attendance at RV shows across the nation.
Phoenix, AZ (Vocus) April 14, 2010
Pedata RV Center cites industry experts forecasting that 2010 will be a year of recovery for the RV industry. Richard Curtin, economist, estimates that 2010 RV shipments will total 215,900 units. These estimates indicate a more than 30% increase in comparison to 2009. Richard Curtin is Director of Consumer Surveys at the University of Michigan. Curtin also predicts that towable shipments will increase by 43.8%. The greatest unit growth is expected amongst the travel trailer category (a projected 31,500 unit increase). The highest percentage growth is predicted for fifth wheels (59.8%).
Gerard Pedata of Pedata RV Center responded, “The demand for the travel trailer and motorhome never decreased. Even in the midst of the low sales that defined 2009 there was high attendance at RV shows across the nation.”
The current positive forecasts generated by economists are based on the surprisingly strong sales during the winter season. The positive forecasts include both motorhomes and travel trailers and indicate the RV industry is firmly on the road to recovery. The recovery began in August of 2009 when wholesale shipments showed an increase in comparison to the previous year. The positive movement continued through the remainder of 2009 setting the groundwork for the recovery in 2010.
Pedata RV Center offers an online directory of their full inventory with a wide selection of RVs for consumer purchase. Low overhead costs allowed the company to thrive during the tough year 2009 became and the company is seeing the “recovery of 2010” firsthand as more consumers are not just looking, but looking to buy.
