Motorhomes and caravans an ideal option for travelling workers

dfc9b1b1-0101-43de-9731-e7528d103a09

A survey by online vehicle marketplace, Auto Trader, found that one in two Brits would not be comfortable travelling for work at the moment, unless they were able to travel in their own vehicle and stay in their own accommodation, and 32 per cent would feel more comfortable staying in a motorhome or caravan, rather than a hotel or serviced apartment.

Of the 2,000 people surveyed, one in five also feel that employers should provide caravans or motorhomes for their employees if staff are required to travel and stay overnight for work in the current climate.

The research follows reports of a 51 per cent increase in views of motorhome adverts and an 80 per cent year-on-year rise in caravan adverts in recent weeks on Auto Trader.

Auto Trader’s Rory Reid said: “We’ve recently seen a huge spike in interest for caravans and motorhomes across our app and website. Whilst a large portion of this is down to people needing a staycation this year, there’s a really interesting trend emerging of using caravans for contact-free ways of working, or even self-isolating to keep key workers safe.

“Businesses need to adapt to a greater need for safety when sending employees to travel and stay overnight for work. Using caravans and motorhomes can facilitate this, as well as providing a quiet space to help optimise working. It may well be in a business’ best interest to start looking into caravans and motorhomes!”
