4 Stocks Set to Gain Amid Robust Demand for RVs
The COVID-19 pandemic renewed interest among consumers for recreational vehicles (“RVs”). This is because the pandemic-imposed travel restrictions to curb the spread of the virus, forcing people to cancel their vacation plans.
Even after the gradual easing of restrictions, the risks of availing public transport like flights prompted many first-time buyers to opt for RVs to go camping around the country or enjoy a vacation. Notably, this spark in demand for RVs looks set to continue this year as well.
Per a report by the RV Industry Association, RV shipments are expected to reach record highs in 2021, highlighting how the appeal of RVs and the outdoor lifestyle have been gaining steam among Americans.
Markedly, the report mentioned that 2021 RV shipments are expected to range between 523,139 and 543,572 units with the most likely year-end total being 533,356 units, up 23.9% from last year’s shipment of 430,412 units. Notably, the report highlighted factors like easing supply-related constraints, original equipment manufacturer plans to expand capacity and consumer demand outpacing the low inventory levels, contributing to the record-high projections for 2021.
In fact, 2021 has already started on a positive note for RV shipments as Americans continue to resort to them for planning their vacations and keep on adopting this lifestyle for a safer getaway. Notably, per another report by the RV Industry Association, total RV shipments for the month of February rose 30.1% on a year-over-year basis, marking the best February RV shipment total on a comparable record.
