2 Recreational Vehicle Stocks to Buy as the Summer Approaches

The recreational vehicles industry is expected to thrive in the post-pandemic world with its rising popularity among millennials and increasing commercial usage. Against this backdrop, recreational vehicles stocks REV Group (REVG) and LCI (LCII) could be strong bets this summer as vacationers gear up for outdoor experiences.

The recreational vehicles (RVs) market is growing as people return to road trips and camping as a getaway from the pandemic and bustling city life. Moreover, the rising commercial usage of RVs and the proliferation of peer-to-peer rental services among millennials are expected to foster this market’s growth. The RV market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of over 10% from 2022 to 2028.

RVs are becoming increasingly popular among Americans, and over 11% of households own them. And over 1 million households in the United States live in RVs full time. In addition, RV manufacturers are focusing on developing customized RVs with advanced technologies, which should bolster growth in the coming years.
