New caravan registrations clearly up at the end of the year, motor caravan production continues to suffer from lack of chassis
New caravan registrations remain positive
At the end of the year, new caravan registrations in Germany are still positive: 794 new registrations mean a strong plus of 27.4 percent compared to the previous year. This is the fourth monthly increase in a row. With a total of 24,478 new registrations (-1 percent) in 2022, the segment is on a par with the previous year.
Motor caravan sector continues to suffer from lack of chassis
Despite high demand: the motor caravan segment closes the year with a minus in new registrations. 2,679 newly registered motor caravans represent a minus of 26 percent compared to the previous year. Over the entire year, 66,507 new registrations (-18.3 per cent) were registered. It is the third best result in the industry’s history and clearly tops the pre-Corona years. In particular, the industry-wide shortage of vehicle chassis caused motor caravans production to buckle, so fewer vehicles were delivered.
