Retail registrations of Class A and C motorhomes totaled 1,853 in June, a 35.3% decline from June 2008, Statistical Surveys Inc. (SSI) reported today (Aug. 17).

Class A registrations totaled 1,057, a 30.6% decline from a year ago, while Class C registrations totaled 800, a 40.6% decline from a year ago.

The Grand Rapids, Mich.-based firm disclosed that its June report was incomplete, however, as the states of California and Minnesota “are experiencing delays in processing.” SSI will place the correct data into the correct months when it is received, the company stated.

By vehicle class, Fleetwood RV Inc. led the way in the sale of 190 Class A motorhomes for an 18.0% market share. Winnebago was second with 171 units sold and a 16.2% market share.

Winnebago was first in Class C sales with 167 sales and a 20.9% market share. Thor Industries Inc. was a close second with 157 unit sales and a 19.6% share.
