In short, the answer is ‘yes’.
And here’s why:
Its no secret that there is a staycation boom going on. The curbs and disincentives to travel, especially internationally for the time being, have resulted in a surge in demand for home grown self-catering holidays, not only due to availability, but also because they offer total control of your environment.
As we look forward to hospitality venues reopening, which includes caravan and camping sites scheduled from mid April, a caravan, motorhome, or even a tent, offers that autonomous environment; your own space with the facilities you need, yet independent of others, in a shared holiday location. For many, camping, glamping, motorhoming or caravanning are going to be sensible recreational choices, at least for this year.
We are seeing large numbers of new buyers entering the market looking to take control of their holidays. Motorhome and caravan dealers report brisk online sales and expect a further surge in demand once they can reopen properly. Yet the supply of new caravans and motorhomes is limited from manufacturers, so more buyers are looking at the used vehicle market too, keeping values high.
For anyone thinking of selling their caravan or motorhome, the best prices are likely to be over the next few months while local demand remains high and there are limited options for international holidays. I have no doubt that there will be an adjustment in the market once all holiday options are back to normal, but for the time being, now is a great time to sell, especially if you don’t need to buy.
So, if you’re thinking about selling your motorhome or touring caravan, talk to me about how brokerage works, with a trusted brand and national reach.
