Default 2020 Class B Shipments Set New Record

According to RVIA total Class B unit shipments reached 7,222 units, a new record high. That's a 70% increase over last year's total which was curtailed by the Roadtrek/Hymer NA shutdown. More importantly it's a robust 23% increase over 2018 despite the 6 week Covid production shutdown in March-April.

Although the RV industry experienced unprecedented demand in the latter part of 2020 the overall unit shipments for Class C units dropped 16.5% while large Class A units lost 26.7% compared to 2019. Class B was the only motorized RV category to sustain net growth for 2020.

Class B unit shipments by year:
2016 - 4087 units
2017 - 5249 units
2018 - 5881 units
2019 - 4248 units
2020 - 7222 units

That's fantastic news.

First, congratulations to all the purchasers of brand new units.

Second, for those wanting a pre-owned unit the chances of getting one will increase. More sales of new units today will mean more variety and later model choices of used units in the years to come.

Default 2020 Market Share totals

SSI has release the annual market share report for 2020 as follows:

SSI top three Class B by annual sales registrations:
Winnegabo Industries Inc. 49.9%
Thor: 13.9%
Forest River: 9.9%
They also released December only market shares as:
Winnegabo Industries Inc. 48.1%
Thor: 17.7%
Forest River: 10.6%
Those monthly figures seem to indicate a late-year surge by Thor, and a lesser extent Forest River, that otherwise would have been obscured in year-to-date cumulative totals.

Very interesting Rocky. If the late surge by Thor and Forest River continues then Winnebago's share would seem destined to decline through this year.

It's possible that, as the competition heats up, we might see unit prices decline a bit.
