In this new series of videos, we aim to take you behind the scenes at The Explorer Group Limited, sharing the journey from initial design concepts and development, to handover day at the Dealership and one Customer’s first holiday in their new purchase.
‘A Day in the Life' – Design and Development - In the first of the series, our ‘Access All Areas’ approach meets the team behind our new 2017 Season caravans and motorhomes as they discuss design considerations and choices for the year ahead.
‘A Day in the Life' – Supplier – In this episode we go behind the scenes at The Explorer Group in Consett and at Whale in Bangor, Northern Ireland and discover how this industry-leading partnership produces world-class innovation.
Plus, the all-new Elddis Avante 866 and Elddis Autoquest 196 are subjected to Cold Chamber Testing to prove their suitability as all-weather leisure vehicles.
‘A Day in the Life' – Retailer Preview – Leading retailers from the UK, Netherlands, South Korea and New Zealand flock to The Explorer Group to see the all-new 2017 Season product line-up for the first time.
Based on the success of the previous year, most have ‘blindly’ pre-ordered their stock with the utmost confidence – so let’s see their reaction to these exciting new ranges!
‘A Day in the Life' – Open Weekend – Once a year, The Explorer Group Limited opens its doors to welcome visitors to its County Durham-based factory. This year nearly 4000 people from the length and breadth of the UK came to see how and where our caravans and motorhomes are made, with many purchasing their dream caravan or motorhome from the 2017 Season line-up, on public display for the first time!
New Customers tell us what brought them to the Open Weekend, what they like and why they decided to buy.
‘A Day in the Life' – The Caravan and Motorhome Show, NEC Birmingham: The Big Build – In a mix of time-lapse footage and candid reportage, see how our stand at the biggest leisure vehicle show of the year comes together – from an empty shell to our award-winning line-up of 57 touring caravans and motorhomes.
‘A Day in the Life' – The Caravan and Motorhome Show, NEC Birmingham: Showtime! – Tens of thousands of visitors descend on our stand at the first and largest National show of the year. With new caravan and motorhome models – and ranges – on sale … and the launch of unique and exclusive 8ft-wide family caravans … what will the public reaction be and what are our Retailers feeling?
‘A Day in the Life' – Handover Day: Collecting our new Caravan – The Addy Family bought their new 8ft-wide 840 model at our Open Weekend (above). Having seen our new 8ft-wide models online, Paul and Sarah contacted us via our Facebook and we had a chat about towing a caravan of this dimension. ‘Come up to Consett and compare the range!’ we said. And they did.
Trading up from an Elddis Avante 636 to a new 840 model, the Addy family collect their new caravan in February and we’ll be there to film the excitement of the handover and their first night away!
We look forward to sharing these videos with you over the coming weeks and months.
