Best-selling Class A Motorhome

Which company sells the most Class A motorhomes? There are not that many Class A motorhomes built each year. The Recreational Vehicle Industry Association tracks the number of units shipped and, for 2019, that number was a pretty modest 16,420 units.

I would be thinking about Class A motorhomes from companies like Newmar and Tiffin. Whenever I stay at Class A restricted RV parks, I typically see a high percentage of Newmar coaches — Dutch Stars — and Tiffin coaches — Allegro Bus.

The best-selling Class A motorhome is not a Newmar Dutch Star nor is it a Tiffin Allegro Bus. The best-selling Class A motorhome is not a model from either one of those brands.

There is a bit more competition in the motorized RV market. Not a lot more, but certainly more than is evident in the towable market.

In this market segment, the top three control only 77 percent of the market. The motorized segment includes Class A, B and C motorcoaches.

We have to dig a bit deeper to find out which brand of Class A motorhome is the bestseller.

Here are the manufacturers that build Class A motorhomes in North America. The list does not include low volume outfitters or the bus conversion companies as they would not be candidates for inclusion in the bestselling motorhome category.

  • American Coach
  • Coachmen RV
  • Entegra Coach
  • Fleetwood RV
  • Forest River RV
  • Holiday Rambler
  • Jayco
  • Monaco Coach
  • Newmar Corporation
  • Nexus RV
  • Thor Motor Coach
  • Tiffin Motorhomes
  • Winnebago Industries

Which one?

According to the most recent report from the RV Dealers Association: Winnebago.

The RVDA does not specify which model of Winnebago but here are all of them:

I haven’t seen very many Winnebago Class A motorhomes in my travels and it was a bit surprising to me to discover that Winnebago is the best-selling Class A motorhome in the market (Note: the data on the best-selling Class A motorhome is for 2018 which predates Winnebago’s acquisition of Newmar).

The Tiffin Allegro came in second.

Newmar was not in the top five although the top five bestselling Class A motorhomes are priced considerably lower than most of the models from Newmar and that is likely a factor in terms of sales volume. It can be very expensive to purchase a Class A motorhome from Newmar.
