2021 was the year of the campervan…it was also the year of a global pandemic; a virus that caused panic and worry across the world.
So, given there was a pandemic going on, why did hundreds of people choose to holiday across the UK in a campervan or caravan and how did we make this safe?
The UK was given the green light for leisure travel in July 2021 after a somewhat mixed season with lockdowns and Covid-19 cases on the rise. This may have been later than most years for summer travel, but that didn’t stop the UK from embracing caravan/camper life and heading to the hills to enjoy some much-needed holiday rest and time away from the months spent indoors during lockdown.
Jepson’s Ribble Valley Motorhome Company specialise in hiring a range of camper/motorhomes and have seen it’s biggest rise for demand yet – they have experienced more than double the number of people enquiring about the hire of their luxurious camper vans, meaning they were turning people away.
