When Roy Wyss took his caravan business to a recent trade show, he hoped to beat his previous sales record of $1.2 million. Instead, he smashed it, selling more than $3 million of caravans over the six days of the show.
The stunning revenue haul by Wyss' Sunland Caravans came at the Queensland Caravan, Camping and Touring Supershow in Brisbane in June.
The homegrown caravanning industry in Australia is on a roll, with more than 586,000 recreational vehicles registered across the country, a 4.5 percent increase from 2014, according to the Caravan and Camping State of the Industry report for 2015. The great majority (more than 528,000) are caravans.
