    Caravanning in the UK

    interiors of a caravan

    There’s never been a better time to consider a Caravanning Holiday in the UK.

    It’s no surprise the UK tourism industry has been enjoying something of a resurgence in recent years. Although the number of foreign visitors is increasing; so too are the numbers of Brits choosing to holiday at home. Preferring to give the overcrowded beaches of the European hotspots a miss, greater numbers of us are choosing for the first time to tour the less commercialised areas of the UK in caravan or motorhome. Last year that was over four million of us.

    Whether you have bought a caravan, or intend to hire a motorhome and tour the UK there are a number of things to consider to ensure you get the most from your first caravanning adventure.

    • We called in to get the sofa back/bed base infill on our Pulsar made thicker. I just wanted to let you know that we slept in the camper last night and the bed is now really comfortable.
      I can't believe we've spent over 300 nights over two and a half years building the middle of the bed up with blankets and even an inflatable camping mat!
      I don't know why we didn't think of coming to you sooner.....well worth the trip. As previously, the service from all your staff was excellent and Brett did a perfect job for us.
      We can leave the camping mat and blankets at home now, and Vince can make the bed up in half the time with none of the palaver! - Moira Stroud

      Thanks to all once again.

      I would highly recommend Regal Furnishing Ltd !!!

      Thank you very much, keep up the good work. (not many companys left like yours!)
      Regards
      John Morrison

      Mr Morrison

    • Top quality service, top quality staff who are very helpful, even supplied and covered a cushion we never knew was part of the furnishings, the whole experience was brilliant from start to finish, 5 stars, well done Mick and his team - Mr Brazier

      Mr Brazier

    • REGAL FURNISHING. WOW!!, WOW!! Great service, we came to look at the vast range of fabrics for our Eura Mobil 810 for a full re-upholstery, very hard to choose as there are so many, we took our time and we were left to choose. We finally decided on a fabric refit. After making our choice we booked in for the refit, being very popular there is a short wait, we did not mind, because getting a great job was the most important.
      However when we got home, and after looking at some of the refits in leather, we turned up to see Mick again, saying "we had changed our minds" and then decided to go for the full leather refit.
      Nothing was a problem for Mick and his excellent team, he went through every stage of the work to be carried out, making special notes of things we wanted, and the things we did not.
      Our van is quite large and we left it at Regal Furnishings in the very secure compound.
      The work was carried out in a very timely manner, and ready for us to collect on the given time and date.
      The surprising thing for us apart from the excellent job of work, was Mick's attention to detail, and actually getting the job done to a very tight budget .
      There are plenty of upholsterers out there, but one that specialises in motor homes, that has secure parking for overnight stops if needed, are few and far between!
      The reviews for regal are exemplary and we had no doubt who would be doing our refit.
      Mick had even matched the curtains and the overhead cab bed.
      We would have absolutely no hesitation recommending Regal Upholstery to our family and friends - David Bosworth

      Mr Bosworth

    • Not long returned having had my Motorhome interior updated. Curtains, Trims, Foam the lot. On the day I arrived there had been a scare for one of the teams family, they had been called away as you would understand. The result was they were short handed! The difference......nothing. The team across the operation simply pulled together and provided a fantastic service. Albeit they probably felt the pressure!
      The complete process was perfect, nice people, nice job, and the weather was nice too. I’ll go back as and when required. Many thanks - W D

      Ms Porrett

    • Excellent friendly service. We only had a small job done, a padded end panel for our motorhome.
