More than 50,000 new motor caravans registered for the first time ever
Sales of new motor caravans last year exceeded the record set in 2018, reaching 53,825 units – a very robust increase of 15.1 percent. 2019 was the ninth consecutive year that the German motor caravan sector achieved record sales. Sales of new motor caravans have more than doubled over the past five years.
New Caravan sales reach highest level since 1996
Sales of new caravans rose as well last year, the sixth consecutive time this has occurred. The 26,941 new caravans sold, which represent the sector’s best sales performance since 1996, represent a sales increase of 10.7 percent over the prior year.
“Caravanning holidays make it possible for people to set their own agendas for their leisure time and open up myriad new options. Which is why setting off on holiday in a caravan or motor caravan is a highly popular option among a growing number of Germans of all ages and from all walks of life, regardless of whether they are travelling alone or with their family,” notes Daniel Onggowinarso, Managing Director of the caravanning industry association CIVD. “The more than 80,000 new motor caravans and caravans sold last year far exceeded our already optimistic forecasts for sales in 2019. Against this backdrop, we are confident that we will be seeing a significant sales jump in the coming year as well,” Mr. Onggowinarso said.
