Ford Chassis Motorhome Sales Up
When it costs as much as most new houses, your motorhome better be built on a chassis or van that can last as long. That’s why consumers are buying more motorhomes built off of Ford Class A chassis and Class C van-based motorhomes.
Motorhomes can cost up to $150,000 for the big Class A types like your typical Winnebago and, despite that large investment, sales rose up to twelve-percent for year-to-date through May.
Class C motorhomes, which are built upon the Ford E-series Cab-Chassis vans, were up by fourteen-percent in a similar timeframe. Within the market, Ford’s sales are outperforming the market according to Ford.
Within the sales numbers released by the Ford, Class A chassis sales are up seventeen-percent and Class C sales are up sixteen-percent through May.
These increases lead Ford to increase production of its stripped chassis by 33-percent in 2014. We’ll have to wait and see if the new Transit van and cutaway will continue those sales numbers in the Class B and C segments.
