The caravanning industry appears to be booming, with lots of newcomers to the market and parks reporting high visitor numbers this summer.
It seems the Coronavirus pandemic has boosted the UK staycation, as many holidaymakers avoid foreign travel and are investing in static caravan ownership.
The results of our recent community poll reveal there are plenty of static caravanning “newbies” after we asked owners how long they’d owned a caravan.
More than 400 owners voted and over a third (36 percent) said they’d owned their holiday caravan for just five years or less – 9 percent for one year or less.
A further fifth of owners (20 percent) have been caravanning on UK holiday parks for six to 10 years.
Just 10 percent of those polled have owned a holiday caravan for more than 31 years.
