Advanced navigation systems that ensure safer and more efficient journeys and smart home features like remote control of lighting, heating, and security systems improve the convenience and efficiency of caravans. Integrated Wi-Fi, mobile hotspots, and smart entertainment systems align with the needs of modern world consumers and, therefore, contribute positively to the market's growth and development.
