Motorhome sales on the increase and predicted to continue into 2015

Figures just released by industry trade body, the National Caravan Council (NCC), reveal that new motorhome registrations increased significantly in 2014, illustrating that more buyers are entering (or re-entering) the leisure vehicle market.

Registrations for motorhomes increased by 18%, taking the number of to 8,733 motorhomes registered with the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA).

October, when many new models for 2015 arrived in showrooms, was the busiest month, showing a year-on-year increase of 18%.

Jenny Summers, NCC group marketing director, said: “It is incredibly positive to see that motorhome registrations increased so much in 2014 as it demonstrates that more people are discovering the benefits that touring in a motorhome brings. It also shows that consumer confidence is returning to the market, many exhibitors at our Motorhome & Caravan Show 2014 reported record sales, and we hope for this trend to continue at our Caravan, Camping & Motorhome Show in February this year.”

German manufacturer, Carthargo Group reported a 30% increase in 2013-14 sales while at the CMT, the first show of the 2015 year in Stuttgart, Knaus Tabbert reported a 12% increase in sales.

In the UK, Lincoln-based dealership, Camper UK declared that it had seen the busiest January on record and that it was expecting up to a 25% increase in sales this year.
