Number of campers in the Netherlands doubled

This week the 150.000th camper was sold, meaning the number of campers in the Netherlands has doubled in 10 years. This is evident from the figures published this week by the Kampeer & Caravan Industry trade association (KCI).

“The popularity of campers has been on the rise for years,” says Leo Diepemaat, chairman of the trade association. “For example, we saw an increase of 28 percent in the sale of new campers last quarter, with even a growth of 44 percent in March 2021.”

Also the NKC this growth is reflected in the number of members. This number has also doubled in the past year, to sixty thousand members. One of the causes of the increase in popularity is the corona crisis. This way, people can still celebrate holidays in a relatively safe way. And not only older target groups choose this form of holiday. According to the NKC, there has also been an increase in the number of young people owning a camper.
