Makes sense 37M versus 332M population.

Thank goodness Canada traditionally punched above it's weight when it came to class b production.

So I'm new to all this but it seems like part of the decline in RT market share is just that there are more brands and models offered to buyers today. And many potential buyers, put off by the prices elect to do a conversion on a used van with only some of the features and a lower price point like the #vanlife crowd.

My impression is that the decline in Roadtrek sales is a supply issue rather than demand. You can't sell what you aren't producing. The new Roadtrek company has substantially less manufacturing capacity and covid created substantial supply chain and other barriers to production. I have not seen any new Roadtrek's sitting unsold on dealer's lots.

Certainly it's true that Winnebago is having supply chain issues as well, as are most manufacturers today. And that folks who attended the big Hershey RV show reported high prices and short discounts adds credibility to your post.

Default 2021 - 8 month YTD beats annual record

RVIA reports that Class B unit shipments for the first 8 months of 2021 exceeded all prior annual records:

2021 Jan-Aug: 8,675 units

Previous annual shipments:
2016 - 4087 units
2017 - 5249 units
2018 - 5881 units
2019 - 4248 units
2020 - 7222 units

So two-thirds into the year and we've already beat all prior annual records. I had previously speculated we might possibly exceed 10,000 units this year. That now seems conservative, perhaps 12,000 is possible?


Footnote - Class B shipments for the month of August beat the big Class A units by 13%. Granted it's just for a month but I don't recall seeing that happen before.
