RV wholesale deliveries posted a gain in August for the first time since March.
For the month, the market increased 2.5 percent to 36,500 units, a considerable rebound from a 9.3 percent drop in July.
It's the biggest increase since an 8.1 percent spike in February.
Despite August's gains, deliveries through eight months have slid 2.1 percent to 284,500.
Towable RVs increased 6.8 percent to 28,200 units in August, but motor homes fell 10.0 percent to 5,400. Their combined total for the month edged up 3.7 percent to 33,600 units.
Conversion vehicles slid 9.4 percent in August to 2,900 units.
Through eight months, towable RVs increased 2.4 percent to 215,800 units. Motor homes slumped 13.1 percent to 43,700 units. Their combined total is down 0.6 percent to 259,500.
Deliveries of conversion vehicles were off 15.3 percent to 25,000 units.
Towable RVs were propped up by brisk deliveries of travel trailers, which increased 18.8 percent in August to 17,100 units. Folding camping trailers, though, helped to drag the segment down, with a 16.7 percent year-over-year decline to 2,500 units.
