Twenty-somethings are camping and caravanning more than ever.
It’s official! Millennial's are not only buying more RVs, they’re using them more, according to figures released recently by the Caravan Industry Association of Australia.
Traditionally, it’s been the older grey nomads that have driven RV sales, and helped fill up caravan parks, but that appears to be changing with the stats showing younger people spending more time camping and caravanning.
the 20- to 29-year-old age bracket, the number of camping and RV trips increased by 22 per cent – up to 2.2 million trips for the year ending June 2018. That’s off the back of a boost overall in the number of nights spent caravanning and camping in Australia over the same period, to a record 52.8 million nights.
Millennial's are also helping change the way RVs are bought and sold, as well as the way campsite bookings are made. Online bookings are now the norm in the holiday park and camping industry, spurred by increased use of mobile phones.
