ELKHART COUNTY, Indiana: A U.S. recreational vehicle (RV) sales boom has resulted in the highest-ever annual manufacturing output for the industry, which is centered in northern Indiana.

According to RV Industry Association data, factories shipped nearly 560,000 RV’s by the end of November, already higher than the previous annual record, with production during the entire year expected to reach more than 600,000 RVs.

In November, factories shipped 49,000 vehicles, a record number for the month and a 15 percent increase over November 2020.

“Demand for RVs remains incredibly strong, driving RV manufacturers and suppliers to continue to build a record number of RVs month after month for the past 13 months,” said RV Industry Association President Craig Kirby, as quoted by ABC News.

Also, towable RVs accounted for nearly 44,000 of November’s wholesale shipments, along with some 5,000 motorhomes.

According to the association, in recent years Indiana factories have manufactured some 80 percent of U.S. RV’s, with several thousand people working at RV manufacturing and supply factories in and around Elkhart County.
