Plus 40 percent – March saves first quarter
A decisive contribution to the strong first quarter was made by a huge increase last month – plus 40.5 percent compared to March 2020. Both vehicle segments developed extremely positively. New registrations of motor caravans shot up by 52.4 percent to 10,801 units and caravan registrations also increased by a very good 10.5 percent (3,120 units). In total, this makes 13,921 newly registered leisure vehicles and means a new all-time best for the month of March.
Hope for timely opening of dealerships, campsites and motor caravan pitches
“The business environment has not been particularly favourable so far this year, so we are all the more pleased that new registrations have turned so strongly upwards again in March,” as Daniel Onggowinarso, Managing Director of the caravanning industry association CIVD, sums up the situation with satisfaction. “Demand was already at record levels in previous years, but has been given an additional push by the Corona pandemic. That’s due to the fact that, with a caravan or motor caravan, one can travel individually, self-sufficiently and, thus, with little contact to other people. This makes caravanning one of the safest forms of holiday in these times. We, therefore, urgently hope for a clear opening strategy and perspective for caravanning tourism in Germany,” says Onggowinarso.
