The Covid-19 pandemic outbreak significantly impacted the Europe camping and caravanning market. Initially, the pandemic caused a sharp decline in demand for camping and caravanning services as travel restrictions and lockdown measures were implemented across Europe.

Germany is Anticipated to Hold Major Share in this Market

Germany is one of Europe's largest and most popular camping destinations, with a well-developed infrastructure and a strong outdoor recreation culture. It is home to numerous campsites and caravan parks and attracts many domestic and international visitors yearly. Other countries with significant European camping and caravanning markets include France, Italy, Spain, and the United Kingdom. These countries also include a long tradition of outdoor recreation and offer a wide range of facilities and services for campers and caravanners.

Recently, RVing became more popular in Germany than it ever was. It is reinforced by significant growth in the market for new and used recreational vehicles (motorhomes, camper vans, and caravans) and a significant increase in RV rentals. The demographics of German RV consumers shifted. Previously, most of this low-cost vacationing was done by families with children and seniors. RV trips are becoming increasingly popular among younger generations with greater income levels. Customers demand freedom, independence, flexibility, comfort, convenience, individualism, and luxury.

At the same time, campsites across Europe are fast developing. Campgrounds are updated and offer various new amenities and features. The services supplied range from updated laundry facilities, Wi-Fi connections, and supermarkets to wellness centers, pools, spas, and access to water parks, go-kart tracks, and other sporting facilities. Campground vacations resemble a full-service, activity-filled family holiday, competing with resort-style accommodations. Camping evolved into a luxury holiday, and the idea of the low-cost family trip is disappearing. The transition from conventional tents to pricey campers and RVs is a visible indicator.
