The Campervan Welcome is still very much a factor in encouraging motorhome owners to visit Hawick. Responses this year show that as well as the UK and close continental Europe, campervans are now arriving from the Nordic countries, Italy and Spain. The Hosts also reported instances of visitors from Canada, Australia, and the USA arriving in hired campervans. Many campervan visitors return for a second, third and fourth time because of its popularity.
The Hawick Campervan Welcome continues to succeed with increased visitor numbers for another year. It is an essential part of the Hawick Welcome, and succeeds because it has been recognised in the UK and Europe as unique (and free) town centre stopover and is publicised on dedicated facebook pages. It has become a year round stopover venue.
