Caravans and campervans have a few advantages that top up any other vehicle type. Becoming more aware of these benefits, many Australian families decided to invest in a caravan or campervan, especially in the last few years.
The fastest growing vehicle type in Australia
There is no other vehicle that knows such a growth in Australia at the moment. Caravans and campervans are for sure the fastest growing vehicle type in Australia for now. At the end of last year, Caravan and Campervan Data Report published a statistic regarding these vehicle registrations in 2015. According to this report, more than 586,000 registrations have been recorded during the last year.
The report confirmed once again the huge and fast growth of caravans and campervans. It can be said that there is no surprise about this, as in the last 6 running years, these vehicles dominated the vehicle market.
Research shows that Australians of all ages take into consideration the idea of buying a caravan or another RV. However, the most interested persons in having an RV are Australians between 30 and 54 years old, as they also make 50 percent of those who have bought a caravan or a campervan. Such results are nothing but great news for the RV industry.
The evolution of RV industry
In Australia, caravan and RV manufacturing has blossomed in the last years. In 1995, less than 5,000 caravans and campervans were being produced. On the other hand, 2014 was one of the best years for this industry, as 21,300 RVs were made then. 2014 was the second best year for caravan and campervan industry in the last 25 years. The statistics show an increase of 26 percent in the manufacturing of RV compared to 2004, and of 4,4 percent compared to 2013.
Even though the final report regarding RV production in 2015 has not been released yet, the statistics revealing data about monthly production are promising. For example, the rate of monthly RV production in August 2015 was 8,5 percent higher than in August 2014. An analysis of available monthly statistics regarding RV production reveals an increase of 7,3 percent in 2015, compared to 2015. These reports may announce a new record year for the caravans and campervans production.
Advantages of caravans and campervans
The reasons why so many people want to have an RV may vary from person to person, but usually, this type of vehicle has some undeniable advantages. One of the most important benefits is that you save a lot of money when caravanning. While planning a vacation, you have to allow a high budget for accommodation and transport. An RV brings transport and accommodation together and lowers the costs. Furthermore, you no longer have to worry about the room availability of the hotels or their conditions.
Another main advantage is that you can enjoy your time and the comfort of your caravan in the middle of nature, surrounded by beautiful landscapes, fresh air and bird songs. Everyone needs such a break from time to time.
