ERS looks at the rise in Motorhome sales as lockdown eases
The big day is almost here: from 4th July campsites and holiday parks across England will finally be able to open their doors for the summer season.
With overseas tourism still largely inaccessible and many British holidaymakers attempting to plan their staycations in a COVID-secure and socially distanced manner, it’s perhaps no surprise to see motorhome sales rocketing in recent weeks, not to mention a flurry of activity from expo organisers looking to take full advantage of the surge in consumer interest.
However, it’s a mistake to assume that COVID-19 is solely responsible for the rise of the motor home. New motorhome sales have increased by 83% in the past decade. There are also between 50,000 to 55,000 used vehicles registered per year, with peaks in the used market typically down to new model price inflation or when there’s a shortage of new stock (it’ll be interesting to see what happens over the next few weeks in this regard).

ERS is the UK’s largest specialist motor only insurer underwritten by Lloyd’s and rated A+. For over 70 years, we have worked directly with brokers to provide bespoke cover for their customers’ specialist requirements.
For these customers’ their vehicle is often at the centre of their livelihood or passion, giving rise to different or specific needs that cannot be met with one-size-fits-all insurance. At ERS we recognise and embrace this difference; it is why we employ teams of underwriters who are experts in their field to understand each risk individually to provide the ideal cover and it is also why brokers have told us that they trust us more than any other insurer with a specialist motor risk.
