Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport reported that 25,000 caravans registered last year, a 19 times increase in number, with estimation of around 6 million campers from 600,000 on 2011. One notable thing on this report is that the age of owners went down to 30s and 40s, meaning it is becoming a nationwide trend. About 6,000 vehicles are remodeled as caravans and the market is expected to be worth around 130 billion won (108 Million USD).
Unicamp is a South Korean caravan maker. Since its establishment, the company achieved 13 billion won sales in 2019 from 2.2 billion won in 2017.
