The RV industry has continued to grow steadily through the first half of 2016. While towable RVs lead the way in total volume, motorhome shipments showed the largest percentage gain with the market segment up 16.4%.
So who are the top Class B RV manufacturers?
According to the latest report from Statistical Surveys Inc.
