Caravan Centrum relationship goes from strength to strength

We may only be one month into the new year, but we’re already delighted to see our relationship with Belgian caravan dealer Caravan Centrum going from strength to strength.

Located in northern Belgium, the business is owned and run by brothers-in-law Jacques & Philippe who have worked hard to build up a loyal following of caravan lovers.

We first linked up with Caravan Centrum last year when designing and manufacturing the bespoke Flore holiday home (pronounced flor-ray), which is available either as a 29ft x 12ft model or a 33ft x 12.5ft version.

Produced to suit the exact requirements of their customers, it proved to be one of their best-selling models in 2017 – and as a result they’ve increased the number of orders placed with us by 20 per cent for 2018.

Arronbrook director Paul Coombs is thrilled by the success of the Flore and hopes it will be just as popular with Belgian customers when the new caravan season gets underway.

He said: “Belgians love their caravan holidays just as much as we do here in the UK and we believe our partnership with Caravan Centrum could be a very fruitful one – both in the short and long term.

“Everyone put a lot of time and effort in to designing the Flore, so it’s obviously very pleasing to see that it’s been in high demand.

“It’s a luxurious model which offers great value for money, especially in terms of the space and interior features it has. Hopefully, it will be equally popular this year as it was in 2017.”

With the 2018 manufacturing season now in full swing, Paul and fellow director Steve Park are already busy making plans a two-day trip to Belgium. A provisional date been pencilled in for October, including a visit to Hans Staelens at Rodeo Caravans – the other Belgian dealership we have forged close links with for over two decades.

Paul explained: “We have a very good reputation in the caravan manufacturing industry, but we’re always keen to learn exactly what our customers want from our products - and a trip like this is the ideal way to do that.

“By working closely with both Rodeo and Caravan Centrum, we believe we can cement our relationship further and deliver exactly what their customers want - as the success of the Flore has proven.”
