Recreational Vehicle Dealers
Companies in this industry sell new motor homes, new travel trailers, and used recreational vehicles. Major companies include Camping World, General RV Center, Giant Inland Empire RV, La Mesa RV Center, and Lazy Days' RV.
Worldwide sales of RVs are expected to reach $77 billion by 2026, according to Globenewswire. The Asia Pacific market is the largest holding around 47% among other markets such as North America and Europe.
The US RV dealer industry includes about 2,600 establishments (single-location companies and units of multi-location companies) with combined annual revenue of about $26 billion.
Demand is driven by consumer income and population demographics. The profitability of individual companies depends on effective marketing and inventory management. Large dealerships have advantages in breadth of product line, repair center capability, and marketing efficiencies. Small dealers can compete by providing superior customer service or securing favorable locations. The US industry is fragmented: the top 50 companies account for about 50% of industry revenue.
