Demand for motorhomes in UK skyrockets
Due to the pandemic, more people are now buying motorhomes for staycations.
Still unconvinced by ads from Jet2Holidays and Ryanair encouraging people to go abroad to exotic locations, a record amount of Britons have begun buying motorhomes, with the sales tripling for the first time since 2000.
According to Alistair Norman, a motorhome dealer, he received 20 enquiries a week before the pandemic; now that number has skyrocketed to 500. Another dealer from Staffordshire has stated that buyers are waiting up to six months to receive their vehicles.
According to Louise Wood of the National Caravan Council - I don't know why there's such a thing - the reason why demand has increased exponentially is that they simply "became cool" and are also "great for sports and hobbies".
I don't know if it's just me, but I don't really get the idea and the appeal of going on holiday in a motorhome; in my opinion there is no single location in the UK to which you have to travel in a motorhome and spend the night there to fully enjoy the experience. Why not just book a cabin at Parkdean Resorts and arrive there in a car?
