    Who Builds The Best ?
    « on: October 16, 2020, 01:58:32 pm »
    As I'm fairly new to the Static World of Caravans was just wondering who builds the best Static ? A bit of a Million Dollar question as I suppose it boils down to individual likes and dislikes. Was thinking more of build quality rather than bells and whisles that come with the van ... Mr's seem's to like Swift but I'm still searching ....

    The make with the reputation over the years has been Pemberton, but like with cars some manufacturers improve , some let standards slip. The can all find one good model , or a lemon.  I’d look at interior layout etc. and fin that model that works for you. As you say don’t get blinded by the “extra” bells and whistles . They are after all just that “extras” the basic ‘van has got to be right for you.

    Hello Ian

    No idea.  ;D  It all depends on your budget. If you have the finances then i would think it would be Victory luxury static homes.

    If not then the main contenders are ABI, Willerby, Delta, Atlas and Swift. All depends what you are looking for.
    I have an ABI and have been very happy with it. But then some people are not . Build quality is pretty good. The same goes for Willerby, Delta, Atlas and Swift.

    So it is difficult to say which of the main static manufacturers build the best as it really is down to personal choice.

    We have an ABI and are really pleased with the comfort and build quality.

    We looked at many makes and models over a long time and found that Pemberton had a better quality of construction and finish than most makes.  Years ago, we had a Willerby Granada, but recently we have found that the new ones are not as well built as they used to be. Obviously, different people will have different opinions and preferences and any maker can produce the occasional van which may not suit everyone.
    Look for a layout which is best for you, then compare various makes to find a suitable one.

    We have a Willerby and have found the build quality to be very good. The after sales not so good. Trying to get the snagging done is proving arduous. Once it’s done I’ll be very happy though. And the snagging is only really minor bits that probably happen during transportation.
    Overall don’t think I could be happier with it
