This year the Salone del Camper has also expanded its offer with Percorsi e mete: not only motorhomes and accessories, but also travel ideas. Experiential itineraries, like the Friuli-Venezia Giulia Wine and Flavours Route or the thousand shades of the Marche region, from the sea to the mountains, passing through the ancient villages and cities of art, without forgetting the local products and excellent wines.

Antonio Cellie, CEO of Fiere di Parma commented. “All the major brands are present with the latest news in the sector: more than 600 models to meet the expectations of enthusiasts, who have been meeting every year since 2010 at the Salone del Camper. The exhibition is aimed at those who have made the motorhome a philosophy of life, but also looks carefully at a new frontier of travellers, who increasingly seek contact with nature and want to move freely. The future of tourism is more and more outdoor: passions join traditional itineraries, so here is the combination of motorhome and bike and the search for a new way of enjoying free time. The Salone del Camper at Fiere di Parma is ready, with a complete exhibition and initiatives always in line with new trends”.

The high number of the major manufacturers at the Salone del Camper is an indication that the sector is expanding. The growing passion for motorhome travel is reflected in the data, which is constantly growing. “The trend in registrations in the first half of 2021 in Italy,” underlines Simone Niccolai, president of the APC, “was extremely positive: +38.36% over the same period of the previous year, with over 4,800 new registrations. The Italian production of motorhomes has surpassed all previous production records and [our country, ed] confirms itself as the third manufacturer of motorhomes in Europe, after Germany and France: in the first half of the year, the increase in the production of motorhomes in Italy it was 75.16% compared to the first half of 2020. In addition to the demand from the domestic market, the sector is driven by tradition, also and above all by exports. In Europe, in fact, in the first 4 months of the year, the average increase in registrations of motorhomes and caravans was as much as 45.7%, with Germany largely in the lead for the number of new registrations”.
