Staycation-changing motorhomes campervans caravans trending. According to the latest figures, Motorhomes, Campervans and Caravan sales have never been so popular. There is great concern that the whole motorhome holiday rental industry is very short of motorhomes to rent out. The world of motorhome holidays is changing with more motorhomes for hire and more owners realizing that using platforms like Goboony they earn money from rentals to offset some costs of owning a motorhome campervan or campervan.

Because of the coronavirus pandemic, the disruption of air travel and international holidays ‘staycations’ exploded in popularity in 2020/21. Owners who were apprehensive about renting out their leisure vehicle are quickly becoming converted. As a result, many Brits decided to climb into a motorhome for the first time or start caravanning. Undoubtedly, people were thinking about taking up motorhome staycations as a hobby. Was this just the push they needed?

Staycation pent up demand higher prices

People after a year largely stuck at home, many wanting to get out and about, ASAP staycation was born. The shortage of leisure vehicles slowed down the “phenomenal growth” of motorhome enthusiasts, all wanting to buy or rent leisure vehicles. Motorhomes for hire have become sought after. We did some data-digging around our contacts the shortage of used motorhomes has become quite concerning. New motorhomes have not had enough chassis due to component delays in things like semiconductors and microchips. Leisure vehicle manufacturers and van converters alike have to face up to announce fewer hours until things change. Some manufacturers are facing quoting 2023 delivery on some models. As the saying goes, “You cannot sell off an empty barrow” That is what many now face doing dealer’s closures are inevitable the knock-on effects are beginning to see if a staycation is going to continue.
