    Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “RV manufacturers, through changes in design and material, are focusing on improving the fuel economy of RVs. The next-generation RVs are compact, light-weighted, and aerodynamically-advanced with much higher fuel economy. Upcoming towable RVs, which constitute over two-thirds of the RV sales in North America, have highly innovative designs with lightweight and durable building materials. Such RVs can easily be towed using small and mid-sized SUVs.”
    According to the report, as per the IRS rule, a towable RV with basic sleeping, cooking, and bathroom facilities can be used as security for a loan. As long as the towable RV meets the IRS standards, irrespective of how it is used, one can claim the towable RV as a second home. It provides consumers with a tax break according to the federal tax law. As per the law, an individual can deduct mortgage interest on both the main home and a second home. Tax savings depend upon the monthly loan repayment, the tenure of the loan, and the interest rate. The annual vehicle registration is calculated based on the weight and value of the towable RV. In some states of North America, taxes on personal property are absent. There is also a one-time deduction for the portion of the sales tax paid during the purchase of a new towable RV.
    Further, the report states that increased dealer interest in RV auctions is hindering market growth.
