Derbyshire, UK -- (ReleaseWire) -- 08/01/2014 -- The UK motorhome, or motorcaravan market has shown increases of 16 per cent in registrations over January and April and attendance of caravan and motorhome shows so far this year has been very healthy.
As new models come onto the UK market, the demand for used motorhomes is also on the increase and Derbyshire’s Caravan and Motorhome Sales is helping enthusiasts to buy and sell used motorhomes quickly, avoiding any pitfalls associated with such a busy marketplace.
With a number of new models and a new chassis in the Fiat Ducato coming on to the market this year, motorhome dealers are pushing their residual stock hard throughout the 2014 exhibition season. In turn, this is passing healthy numbers of used motorhomes onto the market place and the shows in general are generating a heightened interest in motorhomes, motorcaravans and the great outdoors in general.
So far, attendance figures for the National Motorhome Show in Peterborough and the Southern Motorcaravan Show in Newbury have been healthy, attracting high numbers of day visitors. Weekend ‘rallier’ numbers were over 3000 for Peterborough alone. The very first UK Summer Motorhome Show in Kent welcomed 7000 day-visitors across the weekend.
Caravan and Motorhome Sales’ Shane Malpass offered an insight into the heightened interest in summer motorhome events: “The numbers are speaking for themselves and as a used motorhome specialist, we are dealing with a high numbers of people who have been to these shows, which seem to be raising interest in new models and consequently of course, used motorhomes”. Shane added: “Every day we are picking up the phone to hear the enthusiastic tones of ‘sell my motorhome’ and ‘buy my motorhome’ and that’s exactly what we are doing day in, day out.
We only buy and sell quality used motorhomes which we check thoroughly, and with years worth of experience, we confidently offer the most competitive prices in the industry’.
With more UK motorhome exhibitions scheduled for 2014, the upward trends are likely to continue. August sees the Western Motorhome Show over the 15th to 17th, staged at the Three Counties Showground. The UK Autumn Motorhome and Caravan Show takes place at Newark Showground over the 6th and 7th September and the Caravan Extravaganza Weekend takes place at The Lawns, Hull over the 12th to 14th September. This is followed by The Motorhome Show Season Finale at Lincolnshire Showground over 26 to 28 September.
