Residential Specification Caravans – is your caravan up to the job this winter?

Here at Park Leisure our mission is simple, provide beautiful holiday parks with great communities for our guests and owners to enjoy all year round. We operate a 12-month season, meaning you can benefit from enjoying your holiday home in all four seasons – including winter.

There’s so many great times to be held at your holiday park over winter – think spooky Halloweens, spectacular firework displays, cosy Christmas’, a magical New Year’s Eve, crunching around in the snow and sumptuous hot chocolate’s by the fire.

Of course, that’s not quite as fun if you’re holiday home is on the chilly side – which is why residential specifications are great holiday homes to choose. Most of our brand new 2021 static caravans and lodges are built to residential specification…but what exactly does that mean?

How do I know if a static caravan or lodge is residential specification?

Residential specification holiday homes are designed to last for a 12-month season including the coldest winter months. From the outside, it’s quite hard to tell what is or isn’t, but that’s where your sales representative comes in handy. Your appointment with the on-park sales team is as much about you discovering if this lifestyle is right for you, as well as them showing you the beauty of holiday home ownership. If you plan on using your holiday home right through the winter months make sure to ask what holiday homes they have available that meets residential specification standards? Alternatively, you can do some digging around on manufacturer’s websites to discover if the home fits the bill:

Specification BS3632 is a residential specification holiday home and built for year-round usage

Specification EN1647 aren’t residential specification, and you’ll need a few extra blankets come October


What are the benefits of a residential specification?

There are many benefits for choosing a residential specification holiday home, the key ones are –

Better Insulation – homes of this specification generally have two or three times better insulation than a holiday home without residential specification, so you’re guaranteed to feel warm through the winter months

Sound Proofing – enjoy peace and quiet all year round with improved sound proofing on this range of static caravans and lodges.

Improved Heating - in addition to improved insulation on the outside; you'll often find much better heating on the inside, too.

Superior Appliances - by law, A grade appliances must be used, as well as LED lighting throughout.

Air Quality - breathe in that fresh country air with improved ventilation systems.

*benefits vary per holiday home manufacturer
