Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, RV companies — especially those that sell camper vans — have experienced a rise in sales, demand, and waitlists.
And it’s not just the big legacy makers like Airstream and Winnebago seeing a spike in demand.
Smaller makers like Advanced RV — a custom Mercedes-Benz Sprinter conversion company — are also experiencing success during the road travel boom.

Like other road travel vehicle makers, Advanced RV’s sales grew throughout 2021, and have generally been increasing since the company was founded a decade ago, Mike Neundorfer, Advanced RV’s president, told Insider in an email.
As the team continues to grow, so has its client backlog, which now extends back about two years.
But Neundorfer says the Ohio-based company’s success is only “somewhat affected” by the rise in RV ownership amid the pandemic, he told Insider in 2021.
