With all the RVs being built?

With all the RVs being built do you think there will be a campground shortage in the near future?

The current production rate is much lower than it was prior to the industry crash 5-6 years ago. So I don't think there's that many more rigs on the road than there were 10 years ago. And I do see new campgrounds being built here and there, so I don't think a shortage is likely.

One interesting detail going on right now is the "oil boom" and all the RV's that are being used full time. I've seen this personally driving through certain towns in south Texas. This image is purportedly from North Dakota.



Texas:



The implications on the used market in future years.

Old RVs' including trailers & 5ver's eventually go the way of the truck and automobile. The get used for parts, destroyed, and rot away under an old tree. Old people eventually retire from Camping and younger ones take their place and begin.

sooo many families buy that impressive RV at the RV super show. Mom, Dad and 2.4 kids. two to three years later the kids get older and want Kona or Cancoon and the RV sits, and Sits and Sits. Finally Dad gets around to selling it and viola, that 16000 mile DP that sat for 5 to 10 years.
I think lots of new rvs are not used to there potential and end up sitting in someones side yard....

There will be no CG shortage. Been doing this since 1978. The question comes up whenever there is a boom in sales. I see no difference in CG occupancy from the late 70s to today.

I heard that Newmar was 4 months behind in production and that is a lot of RVs to soon be on the road

Newmar's production rate is minor compared to the industry overall. A four month backlog is pretty typical for them these days.

A backlog in itself doesn't necessarily mean very much, it could be that they simply know how to run a business (a small backlog is better then having unsalable inventory sitting on the lot.)

Newmar never has that problem. They only build to order. Four months seems like that's always their sweet-spot. Gives them plenty of time to order parts just for the units they're actually going to build.

Probably for everyone being built there's 2 hitting the graveyard.

Hate to say it but with the boomer generation growing the numbers are probably up now. As we get 10 - 15 years down the road I think the numbers will fall. I think this is an older group with the young having different interests. I could and have been wrong.
