Aboutcamp BtoB n.40 now available also online

We are on the eve of a new, extraordinary edition of the Caravan Salon in Düsseldorf. As usual, this year too, we present on Aboutcamp BtoB the map and exhibitors of Halls 13 and 14, the “Technology & Components” area, which this year hosts a total of 246 exhibitors. Our journalists from all over Europe will be there to gather information, take photos, and shoot video reports with a focus on products, technologies, materials, and innovations of interest to caravan and camper manufacturers worldwide. This has always been our mission for the past 11 years. This 40th issue of our magazine showcases almost 60 pages dedicated to the novelties proposed by component manufacturers for OEMs. However, there is much more to explore.

We present two very interesting contributions from the ECF (European Caravan Federation) meeting: one from Thor Industries and the other from Truma Group. External factors such as high inflation rates, exchange rates, and interest rate hikes are impacting consumer buying power. The industry is also facing further challenges with high production costs, increasing labor costs, and supply chain complexities, especially with chassis deliveries. But for the speakers of both companies, the solution is to face the future together: the success in the RV industry relies on continuous innovation and adaptation to meet customer demands, and the collaboration of industry members with a customer-centric approach is seen as essential to create a sustainable and inspiring future for the caravan industry.

Moreover, we have visited two production facilities: the new factory in Slovenia for Malibu campervans, a brand of the German Carthago Group, and the Winnebago plant in Iowa, USA. Our Swedish journalist, Stefan Janeld, who has been collaborating with us for years, also had the opportunity to test the Winnebago’s fully electric camper. See you at the Caravan Salon, and if you want to meet us, just write or call to schedule an appointment.
