The Recreation Vehicle Industry Association's (RVIA) "2012 Industry Profile," which provides a statistical portrait of RV production and sales from last year, has been published and is now available to the industry.

The publication offers a detailed look at RV production and shipment statistics, including historical comparisons of shipment figures and dollar volume.

It also contains production breakdowns by product type and shipment destination, according to a news release.

An analysis of the production highlights and a demographic profile of the RV consumer are also included in the publication.

Key findings from the 2012 Industry Profile include:


  • Wholesale RV shipments reached their highest annual level since 2007 at 285,700 units, a 13.2% increase over the previous year.
  • The total retail value of those shipments neared $11 billion ($10.8 billion), a 20% increase over the $9.03 billion total in 2011.
  • Indiana continues to lead the country in RV production, manufacturing 83% off all RVs in the U.S.
  • Texas is the top destination for RV shipments, receiving 8% of the total. California (5.87%), Michigan (4.98%), Florida (3.52%) and New York (3.19%) round out the top five.
