Most popular leisure accommodation vehicle in use in the UK
England is the largest tourer manufacturing base in Europe
98% of all new tourers sold in the UK are manufactured by NCC members – the remainder will have been imported from mainland Europe by dealers or individuals.
Data is based on returns from NCC member manufacturers for tourers built to comply with BS EN 1645 which can legally be towed by a motor vehicle whose maximum gross vehicle weight is no more than 3,500 kgs.
The data further includes an estimate for non-members (covering imports, 5th wheelers, folding caravans/trailer tents etc). It excludes products such as showman’s or oversized caravans which are required by law to be towed by vehicles whose maximum gross vehicle weight is greater than 3,500 kgs.
