Gumtree Australia’s latest search report reveals a shift in trends from consumers, with caravans and boats the biggest movers for September.

Compared with the same period in 2019, searches for ‘caravan’ on the digital marketplace have increased 68 per cent, bringing the item to fourth on the top 10 most searched items for October 2020.

The list for the top searched items for the period is a broad mix of those across home, sport, vehicles, and appliances, representing the more than 2.8 million items currently listed on Gumtree.
