According to statistics produced by the NCC that is the trade body for the motorhome, tourer, park home and caravan holiday home industries the number of people buying motorhomes rose in 2017 – in fact there has been a steady increase for a number of years.

Below are the statistics for new motorhomes registered here in the UK: –

2017                14,062

2016                12,332

2015                10,572

2014                  8,733

2015                48,839

2014                47,755

2013                45,572

The above organization also produced some interesting statistics for the number of new motorhomes registered in certain European countries that showed there has been an increase in certain countries when comparing 2017 with 2016: –

France             8.3% increase

UK                14.0% increase

It is estimated that there are in the region of 225,000 motorhomes being used here in the UK. Interestingly, there are about 555,000 touring caravans and 365,000 caravan holiday homes being utilized here in the UK. In 2016, it was estimated that people in Great Britain spent in the region of £2 billion per annum on caravan holidays and it is believed that about £6 billion is contributed to the economy here in the UK by the caravan industry every year.

Of course, as with most things that can be purchased, there is such a huge variance in the cost of buying a motorhome ranging from a few thousand pounds for a second hand vehicle to a six-figure sum for a brand new motorhome.

If you are considering investing in a motor home and it is not the type of holiday that you have tried before then you may prefer to hire such a vehicle for a week or two to make sure that touring around the UK and beyond is for you and your family.

AIB Sponsors The Hymer Owners Club’s Tea Urn

Tea UrnFor some time, here at AIB Insurance we have been arranging competitive insurance for a number of Hymer Owners club members on their Hymer motorhomes and campervans. This includes cover for both modern and classic vehicles.

Well, you may be interested to read that our relationship has grown even stronger as we are pleased to inform you that we have agreed to sponsor the Hymer Owners Club’s tea urn. This means that members have access to the likes of a traditional cup or mug of English Breakfast tea or perhaps a cup of caffeine-free tea that may help bring out someone’s inner tranquilit-tea whilst at the club perhaps whilst exchanging stories about their recent holiday in a Hymer motorhome. After all, it is thought that avid drinkers of tea can be rather chat-tea.

We love to arrange insurance cover on RV’s, motorhomes and campervans that come in a variety of shapes, sizes and ages.
