EurotaxGlasses registers important growth in caravan market
Due to this summer’s good weather, EurotaxGlasses is reporting now that the caravan market is passing through a wealthy period. UK caravan retailers are having different prospects over their businesses as the summer time brought them an obvious increase of sales in both new and used caravans.
In contradiction to the earlier predictions of this year, the warm and dry spell which lasted from the beginning of July until the very end of September caused an unexpected turn in the caravan market. While the production levels were up, the sales in only two months: July and August totalizing 6, 771 units alone, which means an increase of 5,7% compared to the sales of 2005.
As concerning the future, manufacturers predict that the demand will be stable at least until the end of this year. However, the outlook for this sector remains uncertain for the year to come because it very much depends on the weather as it did in this turn over of the present year.
EurotaxGlasses comments on the matter that there will be a need for the retailers to get accommodated with the onset of more competitively priced new caravans, as the future used values are likely to remain stable. This also means that the dealers will have to pay close attention to the aspect of existing or non-existing of a recognizable price difference between the two markets.
Trying to explain this last trend of the caravan growing demand, Randal Thomas, Editor of Glass’s Guide to Caravan Values declared: “Whilst the market has experienced a period of increased demand, manufacturers and retailers must undergo a period of re-adjustment to take into account future pricing structures, margins, and consequent market alignment which will determine future values over the next few months.”
