SUMAS, Wash., Oct. 2, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — RVT.com, a leading online classified source of RVs for sale in the U.S. and Canada, reports that its RV shopper traffic hit record levels in September 2019 and that it is entering the fourth quarter of 2019 delivering the highest level of consumer leads and connections to RV dealers in the site’s 18 year history.
RVT.com received more than two million consumer visits in September, up 5% from the same month one year ago. In addition, vehicle description page visits totaled almost four million, up 20% from September 2018.
“The RV industry has tripled in size over the past 10 years, and even though shipments of new units have slowed a bit from last year’s record pace, we are still seeing some increase in demand for new and pre-owned RVs,” said RVT.com Director Shawn Friesen. “RVT.com’s record level of consumer leads, which continues to outperform last year’s historical high, indicates that interest in the RV lifestyle is still strong, and also that our efforts to attract more in-market consumers have been successful.”
Friesen also announced that RVT.com has kicked off its annual Winter On Us promotion, where dealers can sign up for new ad products and receive three free months (December 2019-February 2020). Dealers must sign up by November 15, 2019.

Designed to significantly boost the exposure of RV inventory to the millions of consumers that shop RVT.com, the packages come in three formats and for various dealership sizes and budgets: Premium, Ultimate, or Ultimate National.
In addition, RV dealers that purchase the Winter on Us package before the close of RVDA’s 2019 RV Dealers Convention/Expo in Las Vegas on November 15 will automatically be entered into a drawing to win their entire purchase. The drawing will be held at 3 p.m. PT on Nov. 15, 2019.
