Leisure Vehicles: +3.0%

In the third quarter, motorhome sales (+2.8%) did not fully benefit from market growth (+8.2 over 9 months at the end of May) due to the continuation of the inventory reduction policy of distribution networks throughout Europe. However, Trigano gained further market share (+0.4 point over the period).
Caravan sales (+4.7%) and static caravan sales (+7.8%) remained well oriented, whereas sales of accessories for leisure vehicles declined (-3.6%).

Leisure Equipment: +5.2%

The commercial activity of the quarter benefited from favourable meteorological conditions for the acquisition of outdoor equipment. Garden equipment sales (+ 8.1%) and trailer sales (+6.5%) showed good growth. The camping equipment activity also expanded, the 7.1% drop in revenue comes from the anticipation of the supply of stewardship markets in the first half-year.


The new caravan and motorhome ranges presented to the distribution networks for the last few weeks have been well received, which led to a global increase in the level of orders of show models. However, distributors have been cautious about their commitments in restocking orders pending the reaction of customers to price increases consecutive to the evolution of engines of wheelbases (entry into force of Euro 6d anti-pollution standard).

The positive orientation of the motorhome market in Europe and the expected end of the networks inventory reduction should allow Trigano to pursue the growth of its activity in 2019/2020 despite uncertainties on the level of consumption in the United Kingdom.
