Motorhome shipments declined again in June, but by a smaller percentage than was the case earlier this year, according to data gathered by the Recreation Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA).

The number of Class A motorhomes shipped from manufacturers to dealers during the June was down 12.1% to 2,900 units, when compared with the 3,300 units delivered to dealers during June 2000.

However, June represents an improvement for the Class A market when viewed from the perspective that Class A shipments were down 27.8% during the first half of this year, to 17,100 units.

Meanwhile, Class C motorhomes followed the same pattern.

Class C motorhome shipments were down 14.3% in June to 1,200 units and Class C deliveries declined 20.8% during the first half of this year to 7,600 units.

An exception was the small category of Class B motorhomes. Class B deliveries were down 50% in June to 200 units and Class B shipments were down 35% during the first half of this year to 1,300 units.
