He caravanning sector Has got better weather the coronavirus crisis that he car market: sales of these recreational vehicles (camper vans, motorhomes and caravans) reached a total of 26,731 between new and used, which is a drop of 4% compared to 2019, the year in which 27,940 units were sold.
In fact, in 2020 they have even managed to sign excellent numbers in some months: for example in July, with 1,525 units of motorhomes and campers sold, it was the best figure in recorded history in Spain to date.
Motorhomes and campers, leading the way in 2020
According published data by the Caravaning Industry and Commerce Association (ASEICAR), of the 26,731 vehicles sold, the largest bulk corresponds to motorhomes, campers and caravans of second hand with a total of 16.184 commercialized models. For their part, new make up a smaller number, with 10.547 registered vehicles.
In turn, among the newly registered vehicles, the most numerous have been the camper vans and motorhomes, with 8.690 sold units. Compared to 2019 they fall 3.6% because in the previous year 9,014 models were registered.
From the same, 6,415 registrations they have been brought together by motorhomes, who take the biggest chunk of the sales pie, followed by campers with 2.275 units sold.
In the queue are the caravans, which also registered a more pronounced drop in sales (-22.6%): in 2020 they sold 1.857 units compared to the 2,399 marketed in 2019.
By region, the largest bulk of sales of campers and motorhomes has been registered in Catalonia, with 2.178 units enrolled and a share of 25.06%, followed by Andalusia (1,398), Madrid (849) and the Basque Country (774).
And as for those that increased the most compared to 2019 are La Rioja (+38.89%), Balearic Islands (33.33%) and Murcia (27.91%).
A laps with the second registrations
However, ASEICAR notes that of the 8,690 camper vans sold as new in 2020, almost 30% already had a previous registration in Europe. That is to say, they are not really new models, but rather that they have obtained a second registration, even if it is new in our country.
This, according to the association, is a problem in terms of emissions and pollution, as well as homologation and even altered documentation. And this practice is not new: in 2019 the carvaning employer warned that accounted for 34% of sales in Spain.
These second registrations have had a special impact in regions such as Andalusia and Catalonia, the two communities with the highest sales record, although they explain that they are generalized throughout Spain.
In addition, and despite the moment of stability that the caravanning sector enjoys, according to ASEICAR it faces several problems. On the one hand the import of individuals, which can lead to the vehicle being stolen, not homologated or suffering from security deficiencies.
On the other, the rent not subject to control between individuals, which in addition to being illegal, the vehicles may not be in an optimal state, leading in turn to safety risks.
