Recreational Vehicles: THOR Industries Drops Inventories Due to High Demand

THOR Industries has lowered its Recreational Vehicles (RV) inventories due to high demand in North America.

So far, dealer inventory levels continue to decline materially relative to current sales levels based on strong retail demand for RVs.

Why is this happening? According to THOR Industries, it is because of the following: the perceived safety of RV travel during the Covid-19 pandemic, a strong desire to socially distance oneself, and the reduction in commercial air travel and cruise ships, as well as the underlying desire of many to return. to nature and relax with family and friends.

As of July 31, 2021, the inventory levels of its North American distributors were well below optimal storage levels, which has led to an increase in orders and the backlog of orders from distributors.

THOR’s RV North America order book as of July 31, 2021 increased $ 9.084 million, or 215.5%, to $ 13.299 million, compared to $ 4.215 million as of July 31, 2020, with the order book of Tiffin Group included in the July 31, 2021 totals that represent 767 million, or 8.4%, of the increase of 9,084 million.
