Type B motorhome sales increase

Retail sales of Type B motorhomes rose 29.1 percent in April, Statistical Surveys Inc. (SSI) has reported.

Roadtrek Inc., based in Kitchener, Ontario, continues to lead the way in U.S. Type B sales with a 38.8 percent market share in April and a 39.8 percent share year-to-date, SSI stated.

Pleasure-Way Industrise Ltd., based in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, was second with a 24.8 percent share in April and 23 percent share year-to-date.

Winnebago Industries Inc. was the leading U.S.-based Type B builder and in third place with a 21.1 percent share in April and 18.1 percent share year-to-date.

Winnebago’s ERA was the top-selling model among all the 24 models sold during the month by U.S. and Canadian builders.

SSI points out that the market for Type B motorhomes is a fraction of the total RV market. Year-to-date retail sales for the eight Type B builders surveyed total less than 500 units.
