If the Bristol-based caravan maker Bailey is anything to go by, the future of the UK caravan market is looking very healthy.
At the recent Motorhome and Caravan Show, the company received more than £13 million in retail orders.
Bailey's order book is now stacked up so far into the new year it has had to invest in more equipment to increase production capabilities.
The Bristol-based manufacturer has committed to a £250,000 spend on new capital equipment as it looks to increase the rate at which it can produce its quality caravans and motorhomes.
Bailey's unique Alu-Tech construction system which it now uses in all of its models puts big demand on its laminating plant, a key part in the production process of its strong, fully laminated body shell panels.
The new equipment will allow Bailey to increase the capacity at the plant to keep up with the demand as it works its way through its orders.
