The recreational vehicle industry has had its best February since the economic downturn began, producing 6 percent more units than the same month last year.

Recreation Vehicle Industry Association figures released Monday show manufacturers produced nearly 23,300 towable RVs and more than 2,800 motor homes last month.

Association spokesman Bill Baker tells The Elkhart Truth it was the industry's best February since 2008.

Most RV manufacturers have operations in northern Indiana.

The industry suffered during the recession, sending the unemployment rate in the Elkhart County area spiking above 15 percent in December 2009.
