Visitors to the Birmingham NEC this week will be able to see all the major names in the world of caravanning, with one notable exception.

Dunster House, the company behind the Stealth and Concordia ranges, has opted not to exhibit at the biggest caravan show of the year.

The NCC Motorhome and Caravan Show attracts upwards of 90,000 caravanners over six days, and Dunster House's decision not to attend will no doubt raise eyebrows, given that the company had a significant presence at last year's show.

Dunster House's main business involves building log cabins and wooden climbing frames, but the company launched its most recent collection, the Concordia, just over 12 months ago.

Furthermore, the company's website has recently been edited to change its warranty on touring caravans from six years to six months.

At the time of writing Dunster House were unavailable for comment.
