We are made up of 4 companies we are calling the “Phoenix group of companies”. For more information on this, please see the contact page.
Established in 2002, we occupy almost 15,000 square feet in the heart of Somerset just minutes from the M5.
Our staff and contractors have a combined industry experience of over 150 years, dealing with all aspects of repairs, restorations and sales of holiday homes, touring caravans and motor homes, and ALL work comes from recommendation.
Phoenix Caravans have carried out work for all the major manufacturers and insurance companies, and believe we are the ONLY repair company in the UK to offer a lifetime warranty against defects of workmanship on our repairs, and a 10 year structural warranty on our caravan restorations.
The next generation of holiday homes ?
With everyone recycling these days and the price of new caravans rising each year, it made sense to us to start recycling caravans as well!
We took and old caravan and transformed it completely to the point where it was unrecognisable from the original.
With energy saving appliances, solar panels, and triple insulation as standard, this really is a super-warm eco friendly caravan in almost every respect.
Prices start at £19,995 and we can design the interior to whatever spec you require.
Please contact us for more details.
Vintage Caravan Exporting
We now have the opportunity to export vintage caravans to China and the Far East.
Anyone visiting our website with experience of exporting to these countries, or wishing to become involved please contact us.
Airstream Caravan Restoration
This 1978 Airstream Excella 500 “Land yacht” model is incredibly rare, and almost unheard of in the UK. We are about to carry out a complete refurbishment of the interior with modern decor and fabrics, and restore the exterior. The restoration will take place over the next few months, and regular updates will be added to our website. We will also be selling off the existing interior items, so welcome any enquiries for these parts, which normally cannot be found in the UK.
At 32 feet long this is an incredible caravan in every sense of the word.
Since we started this project we have discovered some companies are charging as much as £3,000 per foot for an airstream restoration, That would equate to over £90,000 for this particular model!!
These are crazy prices when you consider you could buy a brand new Airstream for much less.
