The caravanning industry is booming as never before – this is the conclusion that can be drawn after the most important gathering place for the industry, the Caravan Salon in Düsseldorf. Destinations which have become more uncertain outside of Europe and the positive image of motorhomes and co., which is hard to top at present, have stimulated sales and the camping infrastructure. However, the manufacturer’s visions are not only increasing from an economic point of view – the next big thing: the self-driving motorhome.

At the Caravan Salon in Düsseldorf, Danny presented live, what he is capable of doing.
Pure desire to camp
Camping - that is something families and old people do. That assumption is not true at all. Most often young people are introduced to this kind of travelling, spartanly and adventurous in a tent or a self-made van. Young campers don't have the luxurious and high-class mobile home in mind - not yet anyway. We took a closer look at two different versions of the holiday for freedom-lovers.
The Freedom In A Motorhome
It is the greatest kind of freedom – going on vacation in a motorhome or a caravan. Going wherever the road takes you, sleeping where there happens to be a spot. Camping is in line with the trend. After record-breaking new registrations in 2016, an increase of about 14 percent is expected in 2017 again. So the industry is confident, although it also should be affected by the Diesel-affair.
Traveling By Caravan Through The Ages
What slowly began in the middle of the last century as an upgrade of camping in a tent is now considered one of the most lucrative and fastest growing industries in Germany. After an economic slump a few years ago, today the caravanning and motorhome industry is moving at a pace which other economic sectors can only dream of.
