Fleetwood ranked top Type A seller

Fleetwood RV, Inc., is the leading manufacturer of Type A motorhomes in calendar year 2009, according to Statistical Surveys, Inc., a reporting service based in Grand Rapids, Mich.

Statistical Surveys has been tracking the RV industry since 1987. In that time, Fleetwood has been recognized as the top Type A motorhome brand for 22 of the past 23 years. In calendar year 2009, Fleetwood RV held 18.4 percent of the Type A motorhome retail market share.

“This year’s achievement is extra special for Fleetwood RV,” said John Draheim, president and COO of Fleetwood RV, Inc. “It is a true testament to all of Fleetwood RV’s dealers, customers and associates who we were able to maintain our number-one market share position throughout the challenges of the past year ….”
