A substantial portion of these extremely satisfying sales results was registered in the month of July, during which 8,680 new leisure vehicles were sold. This represents a 14.9 percent rise over July of last year. Sales of new caravans climbed 8.6 percent, to 3,196 units. With 5,484 new vehicles sold, sales of new motor caravans rose by a staggering 19 percent, an all-time record for the month of July. Thus, the German caravanning industry is on track to set new sales records this year.
“The continued sales growth in the German market for both the motor caravan and caravan sectors attests to the tremendous popularity of caravanning amongst Germans from all walks life of and in all age groups,” noted Daniel Onggowinarso, Managing Director of the trade association CIVD. “Germans who own or lease motor caravans or caravans love the fact that this kind of holiday enables them to set their own course freely and flexibly as they motor around Germany and elsewhere in Europe. This popularity is bound to continue apace in the coming months,” Mr. Onggowinarso predicted.
