Caravan & holiday home manufacturers: new for 2019

Manufacturers have had plenty to shout about with new lodges and leisure holiday homes announced for 2019 during the show season. Upstairs bedrooms, Scandi design and hot tubs emerged as the winning trends, with spacious and luxury bathrooms high on the list of consumer must-haves.

The Hull show was the first full showcase for what's to be expected in 2019, all the major players were at the Lawns and Cottingham golf course. Here, Andrew Jenkinson picks out just a few of the head turners…

The big players Swift, Willerby, ABI, Carnaby, Atlas, and Regal were all at the Lawns along with Pathfinder, Prestige, Aspire, Oakgrove, Tingdene, Wessex and Omar. The golf course show took in the likes of Delta, Lark, Victory, Arronbrook, Europa, Lissett, Cara-build and Ultimate Leisure, plus a few smaller makes.
