Abbey Caravans are still widely available on the used and second hand market

With a long and chequered past Abbey caravans have come under the management of numerous companies over the years.
The brand originally came under the ownership of Sam Alper's Caravans International, and was then bought by Cosalt - a major player in the UK caravan market. After deciding to concentrate in the static caravan market, the portfolio of brands was sold on again to Cosalt's Hull based competitors, Swift Leisure, in 1992.
Swift Caravans continued the production of Abbey Caravans until 2008, when the brand was dropped along with Ace in order to simplify the Swift offering. Gary O'Brien, National Sales Manager for Swift Group Tourers told CaravanTimes: "The Abbey brand is still an integral part of the Swift Group and it may return in some form in the future"
Vogue: entry level models at the cheaper end of the scale.
Freestyle: based on the Aventura range
Spectrum: a three model range offering high end finishes sitting at the top of Abbey's portfolio.
Abbey caravans are still widely available on the used and second hand market and have a reputation as good value, family caravans.
