Camper sales are growing, the share of caravans is falling

first_imgRELATED NEWS: Also, in addition to the 5 existing ones (Zaton Holiday Resort, Krk Premium Camping Resort, Valalta, Val Saline and Šimuni), This year, as many as 5 new Croatian camps received the ADAC Superplatz label (Aminess Maravea Camping Resort, Lanterna Premium Camping Resort, Omišalj, Baška Beach Camping Resort and Straško.), Thus entering the selection of the best leading European campsites by the ADAC. At the end of last year, a guide to German camps was presented ADAC for 2019 year in which the Croatian ones are also listed, a total of 129. ADAC: Average quality of Croatian camps in 2019 increased by 3% One of the most significant development trends in the segment of “camping vehicles” is a significant increase in the share of camper sales and a simultaneous decline in the share of caravans.  Based on the processing and analysis of ADAC data, KUH points out that they can be more than satisfied with numerous positive indicators of the quality of the Croatian camping offer. Thus, the average quality of Croatian camps in 2019 increased by 3%, the quality of camps by region is increasing (eg the highest growth is in the region of Šibenik, as much as + 14,3%!); while the campsites of Istria have the highest quality, with an average rating of 4,1 out of 5. At the national level, the selected best campsites were also awarded quality marks by the Croatian Camping Union – Croatia’s Best Campsites for 57 of them, and OK Mini Camps for them 41. CROATIA IS BECOMING MORE AND MORE RECOGNIZED BY WINTER CAMPING GERMAN ADAC CAMP GUIDE FOR 2019 PRESENTED As they point out from KUH, the mentioned trend must definitely point us to some of the determinants of the future development of our camping products, starting from differently equipped and size-appropriate pitches for modern campers, forming a “quick-stop” possibility within the camp, all the way to the necessary strong development of the network of continental camps and an even more significant increase in campsites that are open throughout the year.
