The data is for new sales but that is a very small percentage of the Class B vans you will see on the road. Roadtrek still has something like 30,000 units on the road from all years they have been in business. Winnebago and Airstream total on the road must be much less so it is not surprising you see very few compared to the brands that have been in the Class B business a long time...

Surprised that you do not list Leisure Travel Vans. In my opinion the best quality of any conversions. Just my opinion.

I don't think Leisure makes any class B vans any more, do they?

.

Ever since they discontinued the Freedom a few years ago (short Sprinter w slide),
LTV is a strict Class C shop.

Easier to build.
Bigger market.
More profit.
What's not to like?

Default 2017 Class B Totals

Doesn't look like this has been updated in a while so I'll try to follow Marko's format for the 2017 Class B totals:

Overall Class B shipments were up 28.4% for a total of 5249 units in 2017:
http://www.rvia.org/UniPop.cfm?v=2&OID=11557&CC=2016
Market share breakdown for 2017 according to SSI was:
Winnebago Industries Inc. 35.6% market share.
Erwin Hymer Group North America 29% market share.
Thor Industries Inc. 16.7% market share.
SSI: Class B Sales Show 26.5% Increase For 2017 | RV Business

Note there is a slight discrepancy in reported growth rates because RVIA tracks unit shipments while SSI reports sales.

It is pretty cool to see an entire RV market jump by that much.

.

Some analyst said the deliveries cannot be sustained.

Winnebago's stock took a dive.


But the price is still high.

With a 25% proposed tariff on steel I would expect a steel van to jump in price soon.

Shame on you for revealing that regardless of who benefits from tariffs, it's the consumer that always ends up taking it in the shorts.

Vehicle shipments January were posted: link.

Class Bs were down 7.4% compared to January 2017. I don't think we've seen that in a while.
