RV A/C information

So my g'son is doing some type of paper for a school project and he calls on Grandpa (as I have a camper) for advice (actually answers). Two questions here: 1) Home many different manufacturers of RV air conditioners are there? I know of three, Dometic, Coleman, and Atwood. 2) How many RV's were manufactured in the U.S. in 2013? We tried a search under RVMA (Recreational Vehicle Manufacturer Association--direct from a tag on my TT) with no luck. Thanks

RV Shipments and Sales Data
In February, RV manufacturers shipped 30,826 units, an increase of 11.5% from the same month last year – the largest February total in eight years. Shipments in 2014 are expected to total more than 335,000 units, which would be the highest total since 2007.
In 2013, the RV industry shipped 321,127 units, a gain of 12.4% over the previous year. This was nearly double the total in 2009, and marked the fourth consecutive year of growth since the end of U.S. recession.
Shipments history. In 2012, RV manufacturers shipped 285,749 units, an increase of 13.3% from 2011, and the highest total since 2007. In 2011, manufacturers shipped 252,300 units, an increase of 4.1% from 2010. 2010 shipments reached 242,300 units, an increase of 46.2% from 2009. 2009 shipments totaled 165,700 units; down 30.1% from 2008 because of the economic downturn economists have dubbed the Great Recession. Manufacturers shipped 237,000 units in 2008, down 32.9% from 2007 due to the recession.

Thank You "camaraderie" for that information. I see one thing I did wrong: I looked under RVMA website for info and you used the RVIA. I'll make a note of the RVIA site
