Eterniti Caravans has passed into administration, leaving many caravanners in limbo with regard to their new models.

The last week (27 March), SJ Woodward and TA Jack of Ernst & Young issued a statement saying that they had been appointed as joint administrators under the provisions of the Insolvency Act.

What's more, the administrators added that Eterniti "is not in a financial position to fulfil outstanding customer orders or refund customer deposits".

This means that any caravanners who have ordered an Eterniti in the past few months could be left significantly out of pocket.

Eterniti unveiled its first prototype caravans in early 2012, with the first complete Genesis and Chronicle ranges showcased at the Birmingham NEC in October 2013.

Most recently the company had exhibited at the 2014 Spring Caravan and Camping Show, with many hailing their innovative ideas and refreshingly honest approach to handling complaints.

Indeed, Managing Director Phil Daniels told CaravanTimes that he had sold his business Eterniti Steels to help fund his expansion plans and the company had benefitted from TV exposure on The Apprentice: You're Fired and Ant & Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway.

The administrators added that they will be contacting all creditors and customers as soon as possible, but in the meantime, all queries should be addressed to the address below:

    Eterniti Caravans Limited (in Administration)

    c/o Ernst & Young LLP

    100 Barbirolli Square

    Manchester

    M2 3EY
