Crises continue to weigh on production of recreational vehicles
Caravan below previous year’s level
New caravan registrations for the January to July period were down 3.1 percent compared to the same period last year. A large part of this was due to the drop in registrations in July, when 2,797 caravans were registered, a decline of 18.8 percent.
Motor caravans continue to lack chassis
New registrations for motor caravans fell by 22.7 percent in July compared to the previous year. A total of 47,690 new vehicles were registered in the first seven months. This means the sector missed the record figures of the past two years, but is still well above the figures from 2019. Despite the increased brand diversity in base vehicles, the sector continues to lack vehicle chassis.
