New Victory Leisure Homes lodge has the wow factor

Victory Leisure Homes has launched a ‘game-changing’ holiday home designed to inject a wow factor into the marketplace.

The Lakewood Lodge is the most innovative product in the company’s 10-year history, combining Victory’s renowned build quality with pioneering manufacturing techniques and higher quality materials.

The holiday home’s innovative design and contemporary layout are the result of extensive consultation with Victory’s customers, to create a product with a more robust and domestic feel.

The Lakewood Lodge, which was officially unveiled at the Caravan, Camping and Motorhome Show 2020, has been designed to meet the changing needs of the holiday home and lodge market by placing a strong emphasis on comfort and luxury.

Managing Director, Gary Corlyon, said the model features a range of new-to-market manufacturing techniques devised and perfected by Victory Leisure Homes.

These include: 

  • Beadless internal wall system.Gary Corlyon inside the Victory Leisure Homes new model – Lakewood Lodge

The internal walls in the Lakewood Lodge feature the first truly beadless system to be developed for holiday homes, utilising flush-fitting panels butt joint wrapped wallboard.

This produces a high-quality finish to the interior, unmatched by any other model presently on the market, and the thicker internal walls – 38mm – bring greater robustness and thermal efficiency.

  • Virtual beadless ceiling

The virtual beadless ceiling has been designed to match the walls, giving a much higher-quality interior finish. This has been achieved via tongue and groove jointing.

  • Replacing chipboard flooring with a composite OSB board with high comprehensive strength insulation.

This brings added strength to the flooring, as well as much greater thermal efficiency.

Despite these market-leading construction improvements, Gary said the most noticeable difference in the Lakewood Lodge is the contemporary interior and layout, designed to attract a new type of customer discovering holiday home living for the first time.

The model also has a striking glass front which produces an airy feel and allows spectacular views of the holiday home’s surroundings.

Staycationers demand luxury living

Gary said: “The trend for staycations is only going to increase, particularly as people are more conscious about the environmental impact of flying, so a new type of holidaymaker, eager to embrace the holiday home living, is starting to emerge.

“These might be young families or professional couples who enjoy the outdoors and staying in off-the-beaten-track locations.

“One thing they all have in common, however, is the expectation of high-quality accommodation, with comfort and luxury that surpasses their own home.

“We believe the Lakewood Lodge is a game-changer for the industry.”

Gary added that with the new model, Victory Leisure Homes is pushing to become one of the most innovative manufacturers in the holiday home and lodge sector.

To facilitate this, the company has appointed a new senior management team, new design team and overhauled its manufacturing processes.

He said: “This model is a step-change for us; it heralds the future direction of Victory Leisure Homes.

“But this is just the start. We’re going through a transformational process that will see us go from traditional and safe to contemporary, luxurious and innovative.

“It is this step-change that will underpin future growth at Victory Leisure Homes.”
