When buying a motor caravan or caravan, many of our customers are fulfilling a lifelong dream which they have planned and saved for, for many years. This may now be delayed but, seen against the background of a lack of alternative travel options, we do not think that buyer considerations will be affected by the acute corona pandemic in the long-term.
In addition, it should also be ensured that the German economy does not come to a long-term standstill as a result of the major negative impact. If the situation continues to dramatically worsen, the government must do all it can and introduce further suitable measures, besides those already introduced, for example reduced working hours, tax deferral and bridging loans, and do so as quickly and as unbureaucratically as possible.
