The opening day of the Motorhome and Caravan Show at Birmingham’s NEC has added further confirmation to the momentum behind the current high demand for new motorhomes.
Attendance on the first day was up considerably according to the organizer, NCC Events, which is the show’s arm of trade body the NCC (National Caravan Council).
The NCC reported that visitor numbers on the first day of the show were up 16 percent compared to the first day last year, according to a story by Out and About Live.
“The event’s success reflects the industry’s continued growth,” the NCC released in a statement.
The record attendance is a strong indicator that demand for new motorhomes, which has been at record levels for the past 12 months, is showing no signs of abating.
