Happy New Year, we hope you had a great Christmas.
It used to be the case that you could order a new mobile home in the new year (January to March) and you would be able to have it built and sent out to France or Portugal to be installed for that coming summer. The industry has taken a huge shift the last 2 years and this is now not the case.
If you are looking to have a new mobile home for this coming summer 2017, you are going to have to take some serious steps immediately to not miss out. The UK market has had somewhat of a boom and much of 2017 stock is already sold before it has been built. This is going to cause us all sorts of problems this year and we don’t see it changing for 2018 either.
Current factory capacity reports
Carnaby – have sold out of all 2017 production now and are only taking orders for 2018.
ABI – the build schedule is sold out up to end of May/June. We are waiting to see what they will build mid-June and July. However, this will be too late to bring a home out to France and install as it will be high season, and not possible to move the homes around the park while there are all the summer holiday makers on site.
Pemberton – awaiting updates from the factory.
Willerby – are the largest company so have a little extra capacity to build. They have told us of Sierra, Mistral, Granada, Linear productions coming up in the next couple of months. There are between 1 and 5 of each only, available to be purchased. The rest are sold. They will tell us of any other productions planned as they schedule them, but these are likely to be too late for this summer.
Victory – awaiting update from the factory.
If you seriously want a home for this summer, please do not hesitate to contact us and we will do all we can to help you get what you want.
Summer 2018 – start now!
If you are thinking of a holiday home for 2018, then again, you really need to be visiting parks soon and starting the process. Some of the factories are looking to open 2018 orders now, for models that will be the same design next year. They will start to fill places quickly before this summer is even finished. The new designs are launched in September at the Lawns Show in Hull, and Beaulieu, Hampshire.
At the very latest, if you want a home for summer 2018, you need to be ordering it by November so as to be sure not to miss out.
We have a limited number of homes in stock that are available and can be installed for this summer.
See here for current stock and get in touch if you would like to know more.
All the best – Eurobase.
