Caravan registrations on the rise

According to a new industry report released today, caravans and campervans are the fastest growing vehicle type in Australia by registration.

The 2014 Caravan and Campervan Data Report, commissioned by the Caravan Industry Association of Australia, shows registrations of caravans and campers have increased by 5.3 per cent to a total of 556,844 vehicles.

This new registration data comes as no shock, as we’ve seen RV production in Australia continue to soar over the past decade.

Recently released production statistics for March 2015 show a year on year increase of 8.3 per cent, with year to date production 13 per cent higher than 2014.

“Yearly production for 2014 was one of the highest in over two decades,” said Stuart Lamont, CEO, Caravan Industry Association of Australia.

“So for 2015 to already be outperforming on last year is a great sign, and this new data bodes well for our industry into the future.”
