Caravan and Camping: Travellers can set their sights on RV holidays

The revival of caravanning and touring makes it the perfect time for travellers to visit participating dealers across NSW for the annual Recreational Vehicle Run Out Sale coordinated by the Caravan and Camping Industry Association of NSW (CCIA) from 7 to 8 February 2009.

CCIA CEO, Barry Baillie, said that everybody deserves a holiday and the Recreational Vehicle Run Out Sale presents travellers with the chance to grab some great bargains on caravans, campervans, motorhomes, camper trailers, slide ons and RV accessories

There has never been a better time to travel domestically and the caravan and camping industry provides a range of touring options for every budget.

Whether it is staying in a holiday park cabin, in a caravan or motorhome, or camping in a tent, the industry has something for every budget and every holiday and the Recreational Vehicle Run Out Sale is the ideal time to take advantage of industry bargains and sales.

The Recreational Vehicle Run Out Sale is a one weekend sale with participating CCIA member RV dealerships and camping accessories dealers.

Dealers participating in the Recreational Vehicle Run Out Sale are spread across New South Wales and cater for travellers already in the market and looking to upgrade, through to couples and families looking to start years of great value holidays.

Those choosing a caravan or RV for their future travels will be further assured by the results of a recent report* analysing the impact of fuel price on the cost of a caravanning and RV holiday.

Mr Baillie said that the report conducted by KPMG details the cost of fuel for four popular trips based on fuel consumption from 10 to 30 litres per 100 kilometres, and with fuel prices ranging from $1.00 to $2.50 per litre.

For example, the report shows that for a three month holiday from Sydney to Cairns - a popular touring route for caravanners and motorhomers a fuel price rise from $1.00 to $1.20 per litre would only increase the total holiday cost** by around 2% or approximately $2 per day (based on an average fuel consumption of 13 litres per 100 kms).
