May 2024: mixed picture for new registrations

After a good result in April, in which both vehicle segments recorded double-digit growth rates, the May figures were rather mixed: at 2,505 units, the number of new caravan registrations was 10.1 per cent below the comparable figures for the previous year. With 10,285 new registrations (-0.6 per cent) in the year to date, the sector is therefore slightly below the level of 2023.

In contrast, new motor caravan registrations continued to develop positively with 8,635 units and a slight increase of 2 per cent. In the period from January to May, the motor caravan segment remained well above the pre-corona level with a total of 37,766 new registrations (+9.8 per cent).
