Best Half-Year for Caravanning Industry
New motor caravan registrations continue to reach new heights
The outstanding half-year result was driven by new motor caravan registrations. These increased by 23.0 percent compared to the same period last year and reached a new record for this period with 48,728 vehicles. Last month also delivered a top result: 9,608 new registrations are 5.0 percent more than in June 2020.
New caravan registrations below previous year due to delivery problems
The situation in the caravan market is somewhat different. New registrations fell by 4.7 percent to 14,111 in the first six months. The month of June was also below the previous year’s figure with 3,435 vehicles (minus 3.8 percent). Problems in the supply chains are primarily responsible for the decline, since the pandemic is still having a strong impact on the availability of components and raw materials worldwide. Manufacturers have many vehicles that are practically finished but cannot be delivered because a certain part is missing.
