Burlington, Ontario, December 5, 2022 – The CRVA reports that RV shipments into Canada declined for the 3rd quarter ending September 30th 2022, but remain up by nearly 10% for the year.

The decrease reflects market factors arising from supply chain issues in 2021 and seasonal fluctuations in the pandemic and post-pandemic periods. Despite the decrease in the 3rd quarter, the Canadian RV Association is forecasting that shipments in 2022 will still be one of the strongest in recent history.

According to Statistical Surveys, RVDA of Canada reported that Retail Activity during the 3rd Quarter totalled 12,601 units compared to the wholesale shipment figure of 10,269.
