Indeed, feedback from the sales team is that they met a lot of new entrants into the market at this show. Davan Sales Director, Richard Burton commented that, “there was definitely a real buzz at this show, as we were able to discuss various vehicles and options with so many newcomers. It felt like we were at the dawn of a new era for caravans and motorhomes as all our representatives, covering Swift, Sprite, Knaus, Weinsberg, Pilote, Joa Camp and T@B were inundated with enquiries”.

It was also evident that most manufacturers had pulled out all the stops to showcase their products. Swift caravans looked impressive with a revolving plinth for the new Basecamp, Pilote motorhomes looked as luxurious as ever, and Knaus and Weinsberg showcased their award-winning models. In fact, so many manufacturers within the Davan stable were promoting award-winners at this event. Even Davan’s latest addition, T@B Caravans, was generating a lot of attention.

These customers need a lot more input and education about the products, and we were absolutely delighted to provide it for them. The remarkable results have reassured us about the future of the market for leisure vehicles. We’re still getting after-show orders, but up to date, we’ve already achieved record results.
