A mobile home supplier has introduced a series of improvements at its business after seeing strong sales during the staycation boom.

KTG Caravans and Campers has expanded its Newcastle-under-Lyme base to include a new warehouse for its caravan and motorhome spares business and increased its forecourt area to allow it display more caravans, campers and motorhomes.

It has also created a new reception area and office space, launched a new website and will soon be launching a new eBay repair parts shop selling used spares and accessories such as refrigerators, water carriers, heaters, hitch locks, cookers, winders and doors.

The expansion follows an increase in demand for mobile homes and a boom in staycations as a result of the pandemic.

It also follows the company’s milestone 10th birthday last year.

Karl Pearce, who owns the family-run business, said: “The lockdown has given us the perfect opportunity to finish the extension to our premises and set up the new warehouse, so we’re really pleased to be able to open again with a new look.

“We are really grateful to all our customers and clients over the last 10 years and really proud of how our business has developed. We’ve certainly come a long way.”

KTG Caravans and Campers, which is based at the Stonewall Industrial Estate in Silverdale, was launched in 2010 with help from the Prince’s Trust.

It has grown from dismantling caravans and motorhomes for spares, to buying and selling caravans, campers and motorhomes.

It also offers a caravan salvage service for insurance and claims companies, including collection, storage and disposal, and now has a successful export business shipping new and used caravans and spare parts to Australia, New Zealand, Asia and South America.

Karl said: “Initially we were just dismantling caravans and campers on behalf of private owners, but we’ve grown the business massively.

“We now work alongside insurance companies and salvage agents offering a collection service throughout the whole of the UK and Europe. We have a storage facility and can also offer a disposal service.

He added: “We’ve been in the industry for 10 years, so we know the ins and outs of caravans and campervans. We know what customers will benefit from, such as different layouts and different manufacturers.

“We’ve always got a good selection of caravans in stock for all budgets, ranging from as little as £2,000 to £20,000, as well as different manufacturers and sizes. You name it, we’ve got it.
