Chinese RV Community Continues to Expand
The 80th International F.I.C.C. Rally in Beijing is bringing together both those who are already a part of China’s emerging RV world and those keen to join it, according to a report by CRIENGLISH.com
As one of the rally participants, Gu Yuxin, bought his first RV in 2011 and has already upgraded to a new one. He says it lets him link with a larger community of like-minded travelers by joining online camping and caravanning interest groups in China.
“I’m on online chat groups every day with other travelers,” he said. “We stay in touch and go traveling together when time permits. Our community allows us to travel more and spend more time together. And lots of RV companies organize trips for customers.”
These online interest groups in China have attracted tens of thousands of participants.
Li Sixin, deputy general manager for RV International Trade and Marketing, says they have a strong faith in China’s market. “Our sales figures grow by 30% to 50% every year. We sold 160 RVs last year, and we’re aiming for 300 this year. This year, we’ve already sold 150 in less than six months.”
