The Canadian Recreational Vehicle Association is very pleased to report that RV Wholesale Shipments into Canada for the 2nd Quarter ending June 30th,2021 totaled 16,250 units compared to 4,471 in 2020, representing an increase of 263.45% over the same period last year.
Total RV Wholesale Shipments into Canada YTD for the period ending June 30th were 30,102 vs 13,105 units for the period in 2020 representing an increase of 129.70%.
It should be noted that shipments for the 1st and 2nd Quarter during 2020 were significantly lower due to the COVID pandemic. However, comparing the figures to the last 6 years, 2021 is the second highest over the period.
According to Statistical Surveys, RVDA of Canada recently reported Retail Activity for the first 6 months in 2021 totaled 30,376 units and when compared to the wholesale shipment figure of 30,102 would indicate that Canadian Dealer’s Inventory levels have not expanded as we anticipated.
The Canadian RV Association is hoping that with increased production and seasonally adjusted retail activity in the 3rd and 4th quarter, we will see RV Retailers able to replenish their inventory levels. We expect that demand from Canadian RV enthusiasts will remain strong throughout the rest of 2021.
