Custom Winter Caravan & Motorhome Makeover Ideas
Revamp your Campervan
Now winter has arrived, there is no better time to make improvements to your second home before your next summer road trip.
There are several quality improvements and design choices that you can make to improve your caravanning and motorhome experience. Whether it is a house bus, caravan, motorhome, or horse float, our Douglas team have years of experience in crafting a solution of quality.
Here we have your 3 top tips on revamping your Campervan with custom upholstery.
1. Use the right fabrics and materials
Squabs and interior upholstery can be fabricated in a range of fabric choices, all of which can be explored in our showroom. Soft, plush fabrics create a warm feel, or perhaps you love the style and sensation of leather. It is also important to choose the right foam for the job – sleeping and sitting require different grades of foam to ensure comfort.
For some inspiration, take a look at the giant house bus that got a full interior upholstery makeover from our team in April, and the wonderful covers and cushions our team member Tam created at home on her own retro caravan.
2. Get protected with custom covers
To save your paintwork from road works, dirt and debris, a caravan road cover that’s made to fit your van provides both style and protection.
Did you know we can also make custom covers for your bikes? eBike covers are a speciality too – customised to fit your bikes snugly for safer and more secure travelling on the road. A custom cover that flaps less in the wind equates to a longer lasting bike cover. Or we can make a generic cover with tie-downs – more flexible if you wish to accommodate different bike carrier arrangements.
3. Create more space with an awning extension
Awning extensions can be either cassette style or a canvas outdoor room with custom windows, doors, and fixings; almost anything is possible. This helps you to create more living space when caravanning, whatever the weather decides to do.
