Industry Figures Show More People Buying Caravans and Obtaining Campervan Hire Brisbane

It seems that more and more people are either buying their own campervans or signing up for campervan hire Brisbane services. According to the latest figures released by the Caravan, RV, and Accommodation Industry of Australia, there has been a significant increase in the number of campervan ownerships in the country over the last couple of years. This shows that there is a growing number of people who prefer the comfort and the joys of touring local attractions on a home on wheels.

In Queensland, the city of Toowoomba, which is located 127 kilometres west of Brisbane, topped the list of caravan and campervan ownership in the state. Thanks to the growing number of locals and campervan rentals Brisbane companies that are purchasing caravans and trailers, the city is quickly becoming the caravan and campervan capital of Queensland.

Toowoomba and Golden West Caravan Club president Ian Mackenzie said it isn’t really that surprising why many people are interested in buying caravans or signing up for campervan hire Brisbane services. “Caravanning is a great way to see the country. It is a great pastime and an even better way to meet new people and explore,” he added. Mr Mackenzie, who is a self-confessed campervan enthusiast, boasted that campervans had given him and his wife the opportunity to go on some “truly wonderful trips.”

According to industry data, there has been a 5.73% growth in caravan and campervan registrations across Australia between January 2011 and January 2012. Overall, there are a total of 502,025 registered caravans and campervans in the country. The report, however, didn’t mention if the figures include campervans owned by campervan rentals Brisbane companies, as well as those owned and operated by rental companies outside Queensland. Meanwhile, of all the cities in Australia, Mandurah in WA has the most caravan ownership.

Industry experts attributed the increase to the growing number of people who are opting for comfort when travelling. A recent survey about the caravanning culture in Queensland revealed that most travellers opt to buy a caravan or get campervan hire Brisbane services because it provides them with beds, showers, and cooking facilities, which are generally cheaper than staying at a hotel and other similar accommodations.

Other caravanners and campers said protection from the elements was a determining factor in their choice to use a campervan when going on a holiday. After all, as compared to their flimsy tent and camping gear, campervans can better shield them from the sun, wind, and rain. As such, even those who can’t afford to buy such a vehicle are signing up for campervan hire Brisbane services to have better protection from the elements when camping.
