China: Growth in RV-Related Businesses

An increasing number of Chinese are traveling wherever the road leads. With growing demand for recreational vehicles in China and consumers’ shifting travel preferences, experts expect a surge in RV-related business across the country. “More people are choosing to explore the countryside and hit the roads with recreational vehicle—a home on wheels,” Li Xiang, a professor of tourism at Beijing Union University, told China Daily. Beijing has seen campsites for RV enthusiasts popping up on its outskirts in recent years, including in suburbs like Fangshan, Huairou, Changping, Yanqing, and Tongzhou. According to the Beijing Tourism Development Committee, the suburbs are competing to become Beijing’s leading RV-friendly places. Xu Jielin, a resident in Beijing, said he has always wanted to have a family vacation in a recreational vehicle, but the cost and maintenance of a mobile home has held him back. “Compared with purchasing a mobile home or trailer, it’s easier to rent an RV at a campsite near Beijing,” Xu told China Daily. Xu has registered for the 80th International Federation of Camping Club’s massive caravan rally, which is to be … Continue reading
