An increasing number of families in Australia are traveling by motor home and camper van, research by the Caravan and Recreational Vehicle Association of Australia (CRVA) shows, with 7 million Australians having visited a camping ground or holiday park across the nation over the last two years.
"More than half of the visitors to caravan parks around Australia are families holidaying with children, and they cite value and ease as the key motivators for their holiday choice," says Apollo Motorhome Holidays CEO Luke Trouchethe.
