The boom in motor caravans and caravans after the Corona “lockdown” reached new heights in July. New registrations of leisure vehicles rose to an incredible 16,112 units. This is an exorbitant 85.6 percent more than in July 2019. It is also the best result ever measured for a single month. Since the beginning of the year, more than 70,000 recreational vehicles have, thus, already been newly registered.
Caravan registrations rose by an outstanding 61.7 percent and reached 5,169 vehicles. That constitutes the best July result in history. Looking at the calendar year 2020, the Corona-related slump has, thus, been almost completely made up for.
New registrations of motor caravans even doubled compared to July of the previous year. 10,943 vehicles are the highest figure ever achieved for a single month. This means that since the beginning of the year almost a quarter more motor caravans have been newly registered than at the same time last year.
