Run on leisure vehicles in June – catch-up effect for caravans
In June, the caravanning industry experienced a real run on its products. A total of 12,726 recreational vehicles came onto the streets for the first time – a new record for the month of June. This represents a whopping increase of 49.6 percent compared to the same month of last year. New registrations of motor caravans rose by an outstanding 65.4 percent. With 9,154 first-time registrations, the past month was the best June in the history of this vehicle segment. Caravan registrations rose by a strong 20.0 percent compared to June 2019 to 3,572 makes. In May, the caravan market had recorded a minus of 15.8 percent. “Our assumption that the catch-up effect for caravans will set in somewhat later and more slowly has been confirmed,” explains Onggowinarso. “The turnaround has been achieved. With the reduction in VAT, there is an additional incentive to purchase a leisure vehicle in the second half of the year. We are optimistic for the next six months,” says the association’s managing director.
