Strong catch-up effect since June in both vehicle segments
Since the beginning of the year, 53,881 motor caravans in Germany have changed hands. This is 12.9 percent more than in the same period of the previous year, despite a sharp drop in April and May due to corona. In contrast, the number of caravans transferred to new owners fell by 6.2 percent compared to 2019 to 46,482 vehicles. Looking only at the past two months for which numbers are available the figures rose sharply by 34.6 and 21.4 percent respectively compared with the respective month last year due to catch-up effects. “The Corona pandemic hit the market between March and May, particularly for caravans, which are more sensitive to economic cycles than motor caravans. However, this vehicle segment also managed to turn the corner with a massive increase in June and July. We are confident that the positive trend in both vehicle types will continue in the coming months,” Onggowinarso said optimistically.
Ever more leisure vehicles registered in Germany
Since the vacation mode of caravanning is constantly gaining new supporters, ever more German motor caravans and caravans are on the roads.

Roughly 590,000 motor caravans represent a strong increase of over 10 percent. About 700,000 caravans are 3.5 percent more than in 2019.
