RV dealers have been seeing a spike in purchases now that summer is coming and states are starting to ease lockdown restrictions.
Marathon Coach, an RV maker, predicts its sales will be 30% higher this year compared to last year, according to Marathon Coach president and owner Steve Schoellhorn. 
Airstream saw an 11% increase in RV sales between May 1 and May 21 compared to the same period last year, according to Airstream CEO Bob Wheeler.
Interest is so high, Airstream has been struggling to keep up with customer orders, especially because many factories were shut down for at least 40 days.
