Caravan Owners Opting For More Amenities

The caravan market in the UK is improving with the continued improvement of the caravan fleet, reports a recent survey of caravan resort owners.

Around 25% of existing owners at Park Resorts, a UK-based company that offers caravan holidays and caravan ownership across the UK coastline, have upgraded their caravans to install double glazing and central heating. The survey, conducted in 2012, suggested that such amenities often fetch a better price or rental of caravans, than reasons such as layout, price or size.

Sarah Vernon, the brand manager at Park Resorts, said, ‘The unfortunate fact of life in England is that it’s not always warm – even in the summer! That’s why we offer a wide range of new and used caravans for sale with double glazing and central heating included as standard, for new customers and existing Owners alike. In fact, we currently have a 30% sale on selected stock across our 39 parks, meaning more customers can enjoy warmer caravans for less!’

The caravan park operator has reported that bad weather in the UK has forced caravan owners to upgrade their vehicles in order to keep on enjoying vacations in spite of the stormy weather in the country in 2012.

The caravan company offers a range of caravans for sale at its coastal locations, charging from £19,995 for new ones, and £9,995 for used.

Park Resorts is partnering with ABI, to introduce the ABI Pure range of environmentally friendly caravan holiday homes in the country.

The new ABI Pure range of caravans are better insulated for preventing energy loss, offer dual flush in the washroom cisterns for lower water consumption; as well as controlled double glazing and central heating sustainable energy use. The ABI Pure also offers energy saving features such as energy-efficient bulbs, which use less energy than conventional light sources.
