Profitable Case Studies

Pitch Up and Make a Profit with Wholesale Camping and Caravan Equipment

It’s that time of year again. Holiday go-ers all over the country will be getting ready to pack their bags, slap on their sun cream and enjoy some much needed summer relaxation.

And while many people will be heading abroad to enjoy the summer sun, many will be staying on UK shores, enjoying a holiday at home or a ‘staycation’. And one of the most popular holidays at this time of year within the UK is camping and caravanning.

It’s a past-time for many Brits and despite the weather always being unpredictable in the summer, keen campers will always pack their tents up at this time of year and head outside to enjoy the great British outdoors.

It could be because there are so many sites to explore (Dorset, Devon, the New Forest, the Lake District, the Peak District…) or it could be because of its relatively low cost – either way camping is a very popular holiday choice for individuals and families throughout the UK.

The Great Britain Tourism Survey in 2011 revealed that 17 million Brits took a camping or caravanning holiday throughout the year – meaning more people went on camping trips that year than abroad. And figures released last year reaffirm how popular this holiday market is. The Office for National Statistics survey last year revealed that foreign holidays in 2013 were down 17% compared to its 2008 figures. And the camping and caravanning industry doesn’t seem to be wavering this year – the industry is estimated to generate £6 billion a year to the UK economy.

Wholesale Scout recognises just how valuable this market is and knows that its members can potentially profit from this growing market. It’s estimated that 164,000 people in the UK own a motor home and 260,000 own caravan holiday homes – so there is plenty of opportunity for wholesale buyers to resell camping and caravan products and make an attractive profit too.

If sourced at the right wholesale price camping and caravan gear can bring in a healthy return on investment. So what products are worth targeting in this market? Typical (and essential) camping items include tents, sleeping bags, inflatable mattresses, gas stoves, camping chairs, ground sheets and thermal clothing. But there are so many accessories and items in this market that you could invest in – from cutlery and flasks to torches and gazebos – there’s a lot of choice.
