Ever more leisure vehicles registered in Germany
As the holiday form of caravanning is steadily gaining new followers in Germany, the number of vehicles registered in the Federal Republic is also continuously rising to new heights. As of the cut-off date on 1 January 2021, the total number of vehicles on the road was just under 1.4 million. That is 8.5 percent more than a year ago. The stock of caravans grew by 3.4 percent to 722,516 vehicles, while the number of motor caravans, which the Federal Motor Transport Authority keeps in its register, skyrocketed by a whopping 14.5 percent to 674,697 vehicles. If the trend continues, next year, for the first time, there could be more motor caravans than caravans registered in this country. “The capacities of motor caravan pitches and camp sites have risen steadily over the decades, but have not everywhere been able to keep up with the growth in the number of vehicles in use. This results in bottlenecks in particularly popular regions and during the peak season. As an industry association, we advocate for the creation of additional capacities and emphasise above all the enormous economic potential that motor caravan tourism offers municipalities and investors in rural areas and structurally weak regions,” explains Onggowinarso.
