The global staycation boom is inspiring more and more people everyday to seek adventure within their own home countries. While the Covid-19 pandemic continues to restrict global travel, people are finding creative ways to enjoy the outdoors. According to Scottish Caravans & Motorhomes, 33% of Brits said they are more likely to spend their time off holidaying in the UK this year because of the pandemic.
Covid-19 has certainly had adverse effects on dozens of industries. The Caravan and Motorhome industry is not one of them. With a global sales increase of 126% according to Scottish Caravans & Motorhomes, it is clear that more and more people are seeking a safe way to enjoy their holidays. Alistair Duncan of Duncan Caravans stated in The Scotsman that typical buyers of caravans are in their 50s and 60s, but since the pandemic began a new generation of younger buyers has started to emerge, on top of this Alistair stated that Caravans are a “Mobile isolation unit” and they provide one of the safest ways to go on holiday at the moment.
According to this article from the Daily Mail, one caravan dealer had 20 orders per week before the pandemic, and now receives 500 per day. In turn, demand for caravan equipment and supplies has shot up too, as caravan dealers are faced with increased repair & maintenance sales and manufacturers are seeking access to supply faster than ever before. As a result of the aforementioned factors, there is a huge opportunity for those who have caravan equipment and supplies in stock.
