The trade fair highlight of the caravanning industry in Düsseldorf: from August 27 to September 4, 2022 (Preview Day on August 26).

CARAVAN SALON will once again live up to its position as the leading trade fair for the caravanning industry. From 27 August to 4 September 2022 (Preview Day on 26 August), 736 exhibitors will present motor caravans, caravans and campervans in a wide range of price categories in 16 halls and on the outdoor exhibition area.
CARAVAN SALON is the leading trade fair for the industry, as it covers the market almost completely. The continuously growing demand for caravans and motor caravans has led to many manufacturers expanding their product portfolio. For this increase in products, there are also more and more layouts and configuration options.

Wide choice of basic vehicles

Due to the growing demand for recreational vehicles over the years, more and more brands are entering the market for base vehicles. For example, the previous market leader Fiat Ducato and the identical Citroën and Peugeot models have long been joined by models from Ford, Iveco, MAN, Mercedes, Renault and Volkswagen.

Trend towards compact motor caravans continues

Whether fully integrated or semi-integrated motor caravans, alcoves or campervans, demand for all types of motor caravans is at a record high. However, the campervan has a special role to play. It is the fastest growing segment. Every second new motor caravan is now a van. One of the things customers appreciate about compact vehicles is that their size makes them even easier to drive and suitable for everyday use. The stagnating supply chains have a special effect on the statistics: Due to the shortage of vehicle chassis for classic motor caravan types, the ultra-compact models among the campervans – generally without sanitary facilities due to their size – are currently even more strongly represented in the registration figures: For them, the availability of base vehicles, in comparison, is somewhat more positive.

Innovative lightweight solutions for weight reduction

The many available and popular vehicle features entail greater weight. In addition, motor caravan base vehicles are also becoming heavier due to legal, safety-related regulations. At the same time, drivers who obtained their passenger car driver’s license after 1999 are only allowed to move vehicles up to a maximum of 3.5 tons. The same permissible total weight applies to car-caravan combinations. It is therefore important to stay below this weight limit. In order to keep both caravans and motor caravans agile despite the many equipment extras, manufacturers are continuously breaking new ground in the design of recreational vehicles. For this reason, the CIVD and its European umbrella organization ECF are campaigning in Brussels for an increase in the permissible gross weight to 4.25 tons.
