Caravanning boom continues in October
Motor caravan registrations reach an all-time high regarding the month of October with 1,531 newly registered vehicles. This means an increase of 15.6 percent compared to the same month last year.
Due to the expiration of type approvals, caravans had to be registered in October by the latest in 2014 and 2015. That led to an uncommonly high number of new registrations of caravans and, thus, to a distortion of the statistic. Therefore, the figure for October 2016 (826 vehicles mean a loss of 40.4 percent compared to 2015) looks disappointing only at first sight. The number of new registrations of caravans almost lies level with October 2013 (841 caravans). Regarding the past 12 months, caravan registrations accomplished an increase of 3.9 percent.
