The directorate does not and cannot classify the purpose, whether they are for living in or for leisure use. An implication of the increase is that it is because people are using them to live in.

This said, the pandemic led to something of a boom in motorhomes for leisure use, as they were considered to be advantageous in terms of social distancing.
