A decade of records – over 78,000 new motor caravans registered
A new record every year – that sums up the past decade in the motor caravan market. In 2020, too, new motor caravan registrations reached a new record of 78,055 vehicles. Compared to the previous year, this means an outstanding growth of 44.8 percent. In the past three years alone, new motor caravan registrations have almost doubled.
Caravan registrations with best result in over 25 years
Caravan registrations also recorded a more than respectable result despite the pandemic-related slump in the spring and a sharp decline in economic output in 2020. A total of 29,148 vehicles were registered between January and December – the highest number since 1994. The 8.2 per cent increase represents the seventh consecutive annual rise.
“Caravanning stands for diverse and self-determined holiday planning and is therefore attractive to more and more people,” says Daniel Onggowinarso, Managing Director of the caravanning industry association CIVD. “This is all the more true under the current conditions. With a motor caravan or caravan, you travel individually and only with people from your own household and are largely self-sufficient thanks to your own living, sleeping, cooking and sanitary facilities. The pandemic has accelerated fundamental and long-term developments in tourism such as sustainability, regional and individual travel or the trend back to nature. Because of the special suitability of caravanning for these customer needs and the current situation, the growth in new registrations should continue in 2021,” says Onggowinarso.
