Class A Industry Trends - Larger or Smaller

I've posted before asking about CG trending in regard to their space sizes - are they upgrading for the bigger rigs now more prevalent on the roads.

The other side of that question is: What are the RV manufacturers demonstrating in their actual production lines - Larger rigs, Shorter rigs or pretty much more of the same?

Are there are RV dealers, industry employees, etc. on this forum that either have the inside skinny or can more clearly see which way the industry in trending?

Hard to say, because opinion depends on what influence one has had. I think some people are going to gas because there is a much better choice of shorter rigs say in the 30-34 length. And with fuel costs so high, many seem to be downsizing to the diesel MBz.

They are also getting better at fitting larger beds, etc. into the smaller MHs. Ours is almost 35 ft. And I can't see why we'd want larger. The younger generation seems to want to rough it a little more than us older folks.

We're 68 and 67, in mid Feb we traded our '41 Dutch Star for a 45' Magna, so I guess we're upsizing!

We're similar to you two. Growing younger ever day (even with all of the new pains) and moving up to a larger rig!!!!!!!!!!!!

At the upper end, bigger is more popular and even 40 foot models are scarce in product brochures. But there is increasing interest in 30-34 foot sizes in the low and mid price ranges for both gas and diesel and the manufacturers who serve that market are building coaches to suit. And they are packing more features and amenities in them as well, so the prices keep going up even though they remain much less expensive than the big guys.

one thing for sure, there are more and more dp in the 33'-37' range... lots of competitive pricing as well.
