Many million of caravanning enthusiasts enjoy every year their passion for the great outdoors. The trend towards caravanning in Europe continued in the exceptional Corona year 2020. In 2020, around 235,000 recreational vehicles were newly registered in Europe - the second best result in history after 1980. However, the individual national markets developed very differently. There were also major differences between the vehicle segments: new registrations of motorhomes grew strongly, while those of caravans fell slightly. The industry is optimistic about 2021.
