Continental and ASEICAR signed a collaboration agreement with the aim of equipping them with suitable premium tyres.
Continental Offers Premium Tyres for ASEICAR
All this in a context where motorhomes are experiencing an increase in their practice. The use of caravans does not usually respond to an exclusive movement on conventional roads, but they normally have a tendency to travel on different terrains such as tracks or gravel roads, especially in countries like ours, where these types of roads abound. That is why Continental and ASEICAR have joined forces to offer better solutions to all users of the association that allow them to enjoy a better experience on any type of road.
In recent years, the trend towards the use of caravanning vehicles has been increasing. According to ASEICAR, in 2021 8,575 motorhomes and campers were registered, increasing by 5.5 per cent compared to 2020 with a growing demand for vehicles and a lack of supply in communities such as Catalonia, Madrid or Galicia. Andalusia is the region that most registered this type of vehicle the previous year, while the most spectacular growth occurred in Asturias with an increase of more than 26 per cent.
Alejandro Moyano, National Manager of the Fleet Channel at Continental Tires Spain states that in Spain, for a few years, Continental has been observing that the use of this type of vehicle is experiencing a notable increase, beginning to approach numbers from other European countries with brand presence and a history of using this type of mobility, such as Germany. José Manuel Jurado, President of ASEICAR, explains that they are delighted to be able to collaborate with a tyre company that is committed to its customers, such as Continental.
Therefore, this new collaboration will mean a boost in the motorhome market in Spain and, especially, for Continental, since ASEICAR integrates more than 90 per cent of the distribution companies of this type of vehicle and has more than 135 companies represented.
