Sales in the month of May, which were up 15.8 percent relative to the same period last year, accounted for the lion’s share of these outstanding overall results. The total sales amounting to 12,142 leisure vehicles set an all-time record for the month of May. Motor caravan sales for May of this year rose 16.4 percent relative to the same period last year, and the 8,104 new units sold set an all-time record for this period. The increase in caravan sales for the month of May was likewise exceptionally high, amounting to 14.5 percent. The 4,038 caravans sold during this period are the highest number sold since 2001.
“Caravanning is attracting an ever-growing number of Germans of all ages and from all walks of life, as this very special leisure-time activity enables holidayers to travel at their own pace and go where they please when they please,” notes Daniel Onggowinarso, Managing Director of the industry body CIVD. “This popularity is bound to continue apace in the coming months, and the sector appears to be headed for yet another record sales year”, concludes Onggowinarso optimistically.
