The freedom of holidays in a camper trailer or caravan has been part of life across two decades for Neil and Heather Shorrock.
Coronavirus-related travel restrictions put that on hold until the couple arrived in Port Macquarie on Friday, June 26, for a short break following the easing of restrictions.
They practised social distancing and made bookings at restaurants rather than just showing up.
"I don't think it has changed our lifestyle very much at all," Mr Shorrock said.
"We've been here before in peak hour and I think there are more people here now because they are out and about.
"I think they will be travelling Australia-wide once they open all the [state] borders."
Dane Watson of Watson's Caravans Port Macquarie said enquiries had risen since the coronavirus restrictions eased.
"Sales have gone back to a level where it is comfortable again after an enormous downturn," he said.
Business has also picked up in the service department as travellers prepare to get back on the road.
The ban on overseas travel and the attractiveness of safe domestic holidays have prompted more people to consider caravan and recreational vehicle ownership.
"I certainly see there will be a lot more internal travel which will then obviously back up the caravan and RV industry," Mr Watson said.
Caramart Caravans and Trailers co-owner Lani Newcombe said business is now the busiest it has ever been.
