Below we take a look at the places that have the most RV manufacturers (it’s not all Elkhart!) as well as where popular manufacturers and brands like Forest River, Grand Design and more, make their RVs.
Previously we listed RV manufacturers and broke them down by fifth wheels, travel trailers and motorhomes (Class A, Class B, and Class C). In doing so, we were able to collect a lot of information about the location of RV manufacturing operations and below we’ll slice that data a few ways to get a better understanding of where RVs are made. The methodology used was simply to get the most in depth list possible of RV manufacturers, along with their location. This resulted in a list of 91 RV Manufacturers in the USA to work with, though there are likely more that make up the 280 total manufacturers reported by Bish’s here and the 604 RV manufacturing (likely including suppliers) reported by IBISWorld here. Then location counts were divided by the total count of 91 to get the percentages in the charts below. Location data was taking either directly from company websites or from Google Maps. Let’s get to it.
