According to a recent press release circulated by The NCC organisers of the upcoming Caravan, Camping & Motorhome Show at the NEC, caravan and motorhome sales are on the rise with a total of 21,359 new touring caravans having been sold in 2014. As truly positive industry news, this month’s show is sure to be a roaring success with more than 80,000 people expected to attend the event between 17th-22nd February.
More specifically, the release went on to note that when it comes to those living within the Midlands area, people here are 30% more likely to own a caravan, or motorhome, than those located in other areas of the country.
Our own Joint Managing Director, Darren Brown took centre stage within the piece, providing a real life insight into the recent sales increases experienced at all three of our Midland dealerships, noting that “we have branches across the region and last year was a brilliant year for sales, with most of our customers coming from the local area. We’re gearing up for more in 2015, our Coventry branch is already more than 200% ahead of target on sales of both caravans and motorhomes, and we’ve definitely seen an increase in the number of young people with families at our premises because they’ve realised the freedom and fun that a touring caravan or motorhome holiday offers.”
The stats also went on to highlight the “success story” of British caravan manufacturing with over 95% of touring caravans still being made here in the UK - great news for the local caravanning industry and points that we believe are both truly worth celebrating.
With the Caravan, Camping & Motorhome Show due to get underway next week, we look forward to seeing many of you there - you can find us at Stand 13:10 in Hall 1 where we’ll be displaying our two special edition caravans, the Swift Fairway and the Swift Classic, as well as offering some great deals that cannot be missed!
