The British staycation boom prompted by international travel restrictions is driving interest for caravans and motorhomes and BCA is doubling the capacity of its specialist caravan and motorhome sales to meet the demand.

BCA stages a regular programme of caravan and motorhome auctions and held an online-only sale just over a year ago.

BCA added a second monthly sale in July 2021, with sales now held on the second and last Monday of every month going forward, with up to 100 vehicles offered on the day. The next sales take place on 26th July and 9th August.

Sales over recent weeks have seen some spectacular values paid, with a 20/70 registered Carthago Chic E-Line I Motorhome selling for £140,500, the highest value BCA has recorded for a leisure vehicle in an online sale.
