The production level of caravans and motorhomes is higher than ever before.

Demand for German-made caravans and motor caravans at a record high

Demand among customers for German-made motor caravans and caravans remains high. This situation prompted German motor caravan and caravan makers to ramp up their production once again last year – in this case to a total of 124.288 units. This represents a 1.0 percent increase over 2018, and an all-time record for the German caravanning industry.
