Young­sters drive car­a­van ap­peal

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

Or­gan­is­ers of Hor­sham’s Leisurefes­t Road­show con­tinue to watch as car­a­van­ning young­sters change buyer demographi­cs at re­gional car­a­van and camp­ing ex­pos.

Hor­sham’s an­nual three­day-event, fea­tur­ing car­a­vans, camper­vans, ac­ces­sories and kids’ en­ter­tain­ment, wel­comed an ever-grow­ing in­ter­est from bud­get­ing young fam­i­lies at the week­end. Man­ager Jeff Leech said the event, which tra­di­tion­ally con­cerned ‘grey nomad’ buy­ers, was now appealing to younger gen­er­a­tions.

“We’re start­ing to no­tice a change in who is buy­ing car­a­vans and camper­vans,” he said.

“The av­er­age price of a ho­tel, even in Hor­sham, is over $100 a night. So, more young peo­ple and fam­i­lies are travelling around Aus­tralia in car­a­vans try­ing to save money.”

Mr Leech said Hor­sham’s suc­cess­ful event was one of many ex­pos across the state ex­pe­ri­enc­ing the buy­ing trend.

“This is a change that is hap­pen­ing ev­ery­where,” he said.
