2021 annual Class B manufacturer market shares:
40.5% -Winnebago
27.6% -Thor
...
Thor has been steadily growing their Class B lineup, with new models from the Entegra, Jayco, and Tiffin divisions released near the close of 2021. We'll likely see further market growth this year, possibly even taking over the #1 position traditionally held by Winnebago Industries.

This is interesting, thanks. What's overall growth looking like in the Class B market relative to other classifications?

Overall growth for 2021 vs 2020 within motorized RVs was:
Class A - 29.1% increase
Class B - 91.5% increase
Class C - 24.7% increase
By comparison non-motorized RVs (trailers, pickup campers, etc.) grew 39.6% during the same period.

Class B has been by far the fastest growing RV category these last five years. Originally that didn't mean too much because the total numbers and market share started small. However Class B is now close to the sales of Class A and seems likely to grow further.

Market share 2021 - motorized RVs:
Class A - 27.3%
Class B - 24.6%
Class C - 48.1%

Yea... we passed the Class A rigs...

And that rise in Class B units is with Rapido only doing a fraction of the numbers of the old Roadtrek company. (an intentional decision on their part to start small and ramp up slowly)
