The sales numbers for recreational vehicles the first two months of 2012 speak volumes. But what's behind the numbers may say even more.

According to the Reston, Va.-based Recreational Vehicle Industry Association:

  • Shipments to retailers rose 31.8 percent in February above January's totals and were up 24.2 percent over February of last year.

  • The 24,600 units reported in the latest survey of manufacturers marked the best February in four years.
