    There was an article in a french MH mag. recently saying there was 1,600,000 registered in Europe, on that basis I would have thought 130,000 was the more accurate.

    Dans l'ensemble, le marché du camping-car affiche une hausse de 12, 7% avec 81 332 unités immatriculées. L'Allemagne (plus de 28 000 unités), la France (près de 17 500 unités), le Royaume-Uni (plus de 10 000 unités) et la Suède (plus de 4 000 unités) occupent les premières places. Le parc européen est estimé à près de 1,6 million de camping-cars.

    Sorry about the 'French' but you'll get the basis...81332 new MHs sold, more than 10,000 in the UK etc etc.

    From have some figures Here that I researched a little over 2 and a half years ago there were around 158,000 at the end of 2012. From some figures that @John & Joan sent me a little while ago there were something in excess of 21,000 new registrations in 2014/2015 so, taking into account scrappage I would guess around 175,000.

    John might have been able to collate something more accurate.

    So 205k @ end 2014 + 23k new registrations in 2015 = 228k in UK

    The 23k for added in 2015 is for caravans, should be 10.5k for MHs so about 215k in the UK...

    Whatever the total it's still a heck of a lot less per capita than in mainland Europe.

    This might be interesting to some although the latest data included is for 2012. It is the answer given to a Freedom of Information request for New MoHo registrations by month and year.

    Big drop when the recession started from over 15k per annum to less than 10k and not recovered by 2012.
