OREANDA-NEWS The study showed that if the price of a motorhome was affordable, 77 percent of Russians traveling by car would be ready to buy it, such figures are cited by the Nationwide Association of Motor Tourism and Caravanning.

These are mainly people aged 25 to 34 (88 percent) and those whose family consists of four people or more (84 percent). In addition, 61 percent of Russians who have ever traveled to Russia by car, demonstrate a willingness to purchase a trailer-dacha for trips if its price was affordable. Slightly more than half of the study participants (55 percent) are willing to rent such a vehicle. Here we are also talking about tourists from 25 years old with children.
