Even if the famous motorhome has already become more and more known in recent years, the covid crisis has fostered the success of the motorhome. Many people wanted to prove this type of vehicle this summer. This desire for freedom and huge spaces has allowed these new travelers to breathe a little fresh air by discovering places next of their homes.

Since the lockdown is over, many people have taken the plunge by buying a motorhome. After having rented or borrowed one of their family, many travelers have been seduced by the flexibility offered by the motorhome. This success is shown in the figures for some manufacturers and recreational vehicle dealerships and may continue in the coming months.
Why such a success of the motorhome during the covid?
In this context of health crisis, we must constantly adapt. Our way of life and travel are disrupted, our habits change every day… Some who live in an apartment in town would like to be in a house in the countryside, others usually far from their family would like to get closer… So, we are now refocusing on the main thing: to enjoy life more!
With the travel limitations we faced, summer vacations and weekends focused on short stays and in one’s own country. Travelers choose the discovery of the surroundings and the local. The motorhome is the ideal vehicle for this type of vacation. Whether with family or as a couple near home for short periods and distances.

More over, health protocols being required, travelers appreciated the safety of the motorhome; « to feel at home » but on a trip. In this time of crisis, travelers took advantage of the motorhome to stop where they wanted when they wanted while taking no risk for their health.
