Stowford Dealer Special Caravans

What is a Dealer Special Caravan?

 Dealer Special” is a term you may sometimes hear talked about in the Caravan Industry, but what precisely is a Dealer Special? Keep reading to find out…

Primarily, it is a caravan built and designed exclusively by a manufacturer for a specific Retailer. The retailer will agree to order a number of the caravans, and then will work alongside the manufacturer to create an entirely unique version of one of their existing caravan ranges.

At Stowford we have two Dealer Special Caravan Ranges. We have our own Bailey Stowford ST range, as well as our Elddis Stowford range, so we can use these as examples of how the process works. (NB; our Elddis Stowford range may not be available to view at Stowford South Wales, please phone before travelling).

The Dealer Special will be based on a current caravan range of the manufacturers. In our case, our Bailey Stowford ST is based upon the Bailey Phoenix caravan range, and our Elddis Stowford is based upon the 8 foot wide Elddis Avante range.

 The caravan is designed with a unique set of colours, a new model name, bespoke exterior graphics and a number of upgrades and additional features that up-spec the caravan to make it a more attractive product than the caravan would normally be as standard.

Why pay the extra for a Dealer Special?

Whilst Dealer Specials are inevitably priced a little higher than the standard models, the price does not reflect the full value of all the additional features, so they always represent great value for the customer – an up-spec’d caravan for less than its’ full retail value! Also, a dealer special product is always valued higher than the standard product as a used vehicle, which means that it will be worth more money as a part exchange vehicle in the future!

The types of extra features included on a Dealer Special caravan are probably best illustrated by the list of extras we have chosen to add onto each of our two Stowford ranges. View the lists of extra features below as well as a selection of gallery images of both ranges:
