German motorhome, campervan and caravan manufacturer, Knaus Tabbert, closed its 2020 financial year with sales of €795m (£696m), which was slightly better than its forecast.

It said that sales increased during 2020 by 2% compared to 2019, which “completely made up for the Corona-related revenue shortfall in April 2020 despite renewed restrictions in the fourth quarter”.

The total number of leisure vehicles it sold in the past financial year was 24,349 compared to 25,729 in 2019.

This reflects the company's focus on the sale of high-quality and higher-value motorhomes and campervans rather than on caravans. Indeed,the company sold a record number of motorhomes and campervans – 4,627 – last year, compared to 4,289 the previous year. The Weinsberg models CaraBus and CaraTour were particularly popular.

It also has 18,487 pre-ordered vehicles already for the 2021 season.

"2020 was an absolutely exceptional year in the history of Knaus Tabbert. We are very pleased that we were able to increase revenues and earnings," says Wolfgang Speck, CEO of Knaus Tabbert. "Looking ahead to the current financial year, we are convinced that we will be able to serve the further increasing demand for our leisure vehicles in the European growth market well."
