Since January of this year, title transfers for motor caravans in Germany have risen by an impressive 10.4 percent over the same period last year, to 39,293 vehicles. The figure was virtually the same for caravans during the period: the 39,290 caravan title transfers that were registered represent an increase of 0.8 percent over the first half of last year. Demand for used leisure vehicles in general and motor caravans in particular is expected to rise to remain high in the coming months.
“Caravanning is winning new adherents in Germany every day – a trend that is attested to by the high demand for used leisure vehicles in our domestic market. In some cases, supply even exceeds demand, given the fact that caravan and motor caravan owners derive tremendous enjoyment from using their leisure vehicles and are reluctant to part with them, despite the high resale value of this means of transportation,” notes Daniel Onggowinarso, Managing Director of the trade association CIVD.
