At ABI, for the past 40 years everything we have done has been centred around you. From the moment we begin handcrafting each and every one of our stunning holiday homes, our focus is on making them the very best they can be to bring you years of enjoyment.
Our team of experienced engineers, designers and craftsmen carefully consider even the tiniest aspect, from the reliability of key components to durability of materials and quality of fabrics to create a holiday home that from the moment you step inside makes you feel right at home. Our talented team go to extraordinary lengths to make sure the ABI name is seen as a kitemark in quality standards and superior service.
Creating stunning holiday homes which offer years of enjoyment doesn’t just happen by chance. It takes the dedication and imagination of our highly skilled team to bring our collections to life. Each year we try harder than the last to improve and perfect our holiday homes – adding little touches and enhancements to the ones we know you love, whilst creating new ranges we hope you’ll love just as much.
Family holidays in a bright orange campervan are where it all began. When Anorak’s founder and creative brain Laurie Robertson embarked on her annual Summer (and sometimes Winter) childhood camping trips equipped with little more than a map, a camping stove, and a packet of marshmallows for company, she never imagined where those journeys would take her.
The paint on the orange camper has long since faded, but Laurie’s love for family, colour and countryside hasn’t. So in 2009 she decided to create Anorak. A British lifestyle brand on a mission:
” To bring fun to functional products and to invite the great outdoors into homes (and caravans, campers, tents and teepees) all over the world. “

Established in 1970 we have a long and enviable reputation for excellent customer service, value and Innovation. Roy Wood (retired) was well known in the 60’s & 70’s on the ¼ mile small ovals as a successful racer and builder of F2 superstox. Plus in his time off from running the business, he found time to fit a GRP high roof to a SWB 1972 Transit and build a caravanette conversion for his family of six!
The company is still family run and continues its engineering heritage with numerous projects over the years such as a mid engine 5.7ltr super Transit, Graffiti removal vehicles, Mobile community support vehicles and many wheelchair accessible conversions. Safety is paramount to us and we are actively involved with Manchester University crash testing and type approval.
Managing Director Steve Wood’s personal interest in camping holidays led to the purchase and sale of several larger motorhomes before the opportunity to work closely with Ford UK, led to us become the importer of iconic Westfalia Campers as well as representing luxury handcrafted converters, Horizons Unlimited.
With the imminent launch of the Transit Custom, the first Auto Campers were built on existing Transit to lay the foundation of what was to come.

Founded in 1948 Bailey Caravans is the longest established UK manufacturer with over sixty years experience in caravan design and production. During this period it has grown to become not only the UK’s number one caravan brand, accounting for approximately one in three new caravan sales, but also now one of the largest in Europe. We are now looking to bring this same level of expertise to the motorhome market as well as expanding our operations abroad.
Bailey has invested in excess of £10 million to create the UK’s first fully mechanised production line. The facilitates automatic movement of both caravans and motorhomes throughout the manufacturing process which makes more efficient use of an employee’s time as they can concentrate on actually producing vehicles rather than man-handling them around the plant. The result is lower production costs and better value products.
Bailey is the UK’s favourite caravan brand accounting for 1 in 3 new caravan sales.
Life is a journey …. travel whatever the season, whatever the reason …..

When we design a Bilbo’s Motorhome, it’s you we have in mind. After a day of big skies and new adventures, you want an interior that’s as rugged and reliable as the vehicle that got you there. You need a place for muddy gear as well as somewhere to stow the snuggly stuff. At day’s end, it’s about cleaning up and getting cosy without a lot of fuss and bother. When it comes to food, you want enough kitchen equipment to cook up a treat and a spacious fridge that won’t let you down. Most of all, you need a proper bed that’s as effortless to make and as comfortable and warm as the one back home. Because, after all, tomorrow is a whole new day….
Each vehicle is built upon a powerful, utterly dependable Volkswagen and then caringly enhanced by our craftsmen for serious exploration.
All Bilbo’s campervans are Euro 6 compatible, European type approved, NCC approved and are built by our skilled British craftsman in our purpose built factory with build quality guaranteed through our ISO 9001 accreditation.
