Campervan Sales Continue Upward Trend
Campervans are in high demand in the rental market. Sales of these Class B motorhomes are strong as well. According to SSI, year-to-date sales for these small motorhomes thru November 2019 are up 4.1%. Industry leaders Winnebago and Erwin Hymer lead the pack with market shares of 45% and 20%, respectively. These sales results are contrary to 2019 performance for most other classes of RVs which are down into double digits. Furthermore, the overall industry dip comes on the heels of many years of strong RV sales growth since the Great Recession. Dealers are working to optimize inventories and optimistic 2020 will return to growth.
