Apparently, there were a record number of attendees at the Caravan, Camping and Motorhome Show 2022 that took place a few weeks ago in Birmingham. There also appears to have been a significant amount of interest in people wanting to buy a new motorhome and presumably also a new campervan.
It is going to be interesting to see if this pattern continues for the remainder of 2022 as we have seen interest rates rise and so many people are having to tighten their belts from a financial perspective. Some of those people that require finance to purchase a new motorhome or campervan may be having second thoughts as the cost of borrowing increases in some cases.
There is a huge selection of new motorhomes and campervans to choose from here in the UK across a broad price range. For those who are unable to afford a new leisure vehicle, as an alternative, they may want to consider purchasing a used vehicle.
One of the reasons for the rise in the sale of new leisure vehicles may be attributable to the pandemic. There is no doubt still some holidaymakers who prefer not to travel overseas on holiday and instead decided to take either a short break or longer holiday in the UK. One option is to holiday in the likes of a campervan or motorhome and enjoy the freedom such a holiday provides. Some will rent a leisure vehicle to try it out before committing to purchase one or some may just choose to take the plunge and buy one straight away.
