We would like to thank each and every customer that came to visit our stands at the NEC Caravan, Camping & Motorhome Show in Birmingham this year, for joining the revolution and helping us outsell our competition, at what was easily our most successful trade exhibition to date, where consumer reaction to our new range of caravan awnings, drive away awnings, family tents, motorhome awnings and complementary accessories was simply phenomenal. We could not have accomplished these excellent results without our diligent team and knowledgeable retail partners over at A&E Leisure, Devon Outdoors, Leisure Outlet, OBI Camping & Leisure, Camping International and Glossop Awnings, who worked relentlessly to articulate the exclusive benefits of our brand, helping our models gain the recognition they deserve. The team are confident that everyone who purchased our products from the show will admire them…please send in any photographs of them in situ on future endeavors, because nothing makes us happier than seeing satisfied customers.

Our family tent collection stole the show this time around, with various new models on display, establishing themselves as firm family favourites for the new season. The award winning five berth Airedale 5.0S inflatable tunnel tent particularly prospered, receiving endless praise from consumers and retailers alike, demonstrating as to why it truly deserves the reputation ‘Best Compact Family Tent’. We showcased our customer centricity with the introduction of the premium lightweight Airedale 6.0S six person tunnel air tent, which was chosen as a ‘Tent to Watch’ at the show by industry experts at ‘Camping Magazine’ and proved especially popular, due to the implementation of highly requested upgrades to its critically acclaimed predecessor, including deeper/darker king size bedrooms, extra mesh ventilation fly screens and an optional front canopy extension. The breathable Airedale 6.0 Pro Climate variation quickly reinforced its status as the preferred choice for family camping in warmer climates or continents, where reduced internal temperatures is a paramount. Visitors were left in awe at the innovative design and sheer versatility of the premium six man Airedale 7.0 air framed tunnel tent, which was recently commended for Camping Magazine’s ‘Best Large Family Tent’ and has been revealed as one of Winfields Outdoors’ best inflatable family tents. The premium eight berth Airedale 8.0 air framed tunnel tent was a massive hit amongst larger camping groups, impressing customers with its peerlessly cavernous interior and unlimited configuration options. Following yet another recent commendation from ‘Camping Magazine’ for their ‘Best Large Family Tent’ award; the flexible six berth Ozone 6.0XTR Vario airframed tunnel tent managed to preserve its reputation as our flagship premium family tent, after showcasing the intelligent design, which is specifically engineered to maximise enjoyment and create a welcoming space. The lightweight entry level Cruiz 4.0 & Cruiz 6.0TXL inflatable four/six berth tunnel tents were excellently received by the public, astonishing customers with their value for money and broad array of features/benefits, which are typically only found on pricier models. Our lightweight high visibility two person Flex 2 single inflation point tent held great appeal to the backpackers, festival enthusiasts and survivalists who came to visit our stand, as a result of its fast pitch time, compact size, technical aesthetic and ease of portability.

As the pioneers of the lightweight awnings; Outdoor Revolution’s largest and most diverse range of inflatable caravan awnings and drive away awnings were certainly crowd pleasing, culminating in a record-breaking number of sales. Feedback from the public on our lightweight double rip stop E-Sport Air 325, L & XL single inflation point air porch awning revealed that this model was easily the lightest, fastest and most versatile accompaniment for a touring caravan or motorhome available. The best-selling compact Elan 280 inflatable caravan porch awning weekender sold units in abundance, with customers admiring its ideal allocation of space, speed, weight and features. We observed that the breathable traditional feel Evora 260 Pro Climate caravan air-awning thrived amongst travelling individuals, couples, or families, who typically embark on short holiday breaks in warmer climates or continents, such as Europe, where fade resistant, luxurious and waterproof properties are prerequisites, for reducing internal humidity and condensation. The spacious traditional feel Esprit 420 Pro RVS air-framed caravan awning quickly became our quintessential premium large family mobile home awning after exhibiting its unsurpassed flexibility to prospects, accoladed for its wide range of optional functionality upgrades, the refreshingly innovative ‘Revolution Vario System’ and quick pitch time through just one inflation point; our freshly redesigned Esprit 360 Pro S was well received by smaller groups of tourers, making a brilliant first impression with its new three paneled design, reinforced welded four airbeam structure, as well as a coordinating optional conservatory annexe or windbreak, impressing even the most discerning of caravanners with its style and panache, whilst retaining a compact size and light weight. The visually stunning Elise 390 lightweight air beam caravan awning manifested itself as a sound choice for mid-sized families craving more usable space alongside their vehicle, who frequently holiday in the UK on ‘staycation’ style weekends away, attributed by an array of high quality innovations, including a heavy duty all season traditional feel canvas and ergonomically designed depth, which ensures compatibility with all Camping & Caravanning Club sites. It comes as no surprise that the new single inflation point Eclipse 325 Pro air framed family weekender caravan awning was a huge success, combining the benefits of a traditional family awning, with those of a modern lightweight air porch awning, attracting traditionalist prospects who require a contemporary replacement for their full awning, to mirror the dynamic nature of the industry.

Demonstrations from our staff illustrated how our remodelled lightweight double rip-stop Movelite T1 single inflation point small family drive-away air awning raised the bar when it comes to style, functionality and versatility in a camper van or motor-home awning, upstaging all of its rivals, whilst the Movelite T1 Tail remains the awning of choice for motorhoming families craving more space from their rear door tailgate fitting vehicles. Our lightweight double ripstop Movelite T2 inflatable small family driveaway awning remained in the limelight this year, with countless visitors commending the customer centric functionality upgrades, contemporary sleek panel styling, shallow gothic arched roof structure. We co-created the premium lightweight double rip stop Movelite T3 inflatable family drive away awning using constructive criticism from our customers on the previous model, implementing enhanced styling architecture and a reduced depth, creating a more optimal balance between functionality and usability, resulting in significantly elevated levels of consumer demand for this model. The larger Movelite T4 air-framed drive away awning size option is as popular as ever, incorporating all of these features and three cowl height options, in order to snugly fit any campervan or motorhome on the market a ‘Lowline’ model designed for low campers or van conversions, such as Volkswagen Transporters (e.g. VWT1, VWT2, VWT3, VWT4, VWT5, Mazda Bongo or Mercedes Vito), as well as a ‘Midline’ or ‘Highline’ option for taller, van based, or coach built vehicles (i.e. Fiat Ducato).

The famed Dynamic Speed Valve strengthened its reputation as the quickest, easiest and most reliable inflation valve available, whilst demonstrations of the reliable Intelligent Frame Relief Valve (pressure relief valve) instilled the confidence that we possess in our inflation system, into our customers; the two of these valves is why we are able to provide an exclusive Lifetime Guarantee* on all ‘Intelligent Frames! Our new range of fabrics, lighting, folding chairs, furniture and windbreaks were overwhelmingly popular, certain lines selling out in just days.
