SylvanSport will be attending the Caravan Salon in Düsseldorf, Germany, where they will be exhibiting the innovative GO Camping Trailer.

“We are incredibly excited to introduce the GO to a new market in Germany,” SylvanSport President TOm Dempsey says. “GO can already be found in many parts of the world, including South Korea, UK, Thailand, Russia, Peru and more, by entering this new market it is becoming even more of an international product. Attending the Caravan Salon is a huge opportunity for us, and we are looking forward to meeting new faces and opening new doors in Germany.”

The show will be a unique and exciting event for SylvanSport to build global connections and expand its market.

The company says that the timing is perfect to introduce a versatile, lightweight camper option to the German market. According to the German Federal Association of the Camping Economy, Germany has seen a 5.9 percent growth rate over the last several years, surpassing Italy and now on par with France, in the number of camping nights. This record growth in Germany’s camping market opens the door to the practicality and modern design of the GO Camping Trailer.

The Caravan Salon in Düsseldorf is the largest trade fair for motor homes in the world, and this year will be its greatest exhibition to date. From Aug. 27 to Sept. 4, SylvanSport will be joining 590 other exhibitors to show off nearly 2,100 recreational vehicles in 12 display halls.
