Broad Lane Leisure At The NEC

This week I got the chance to catch up with the Broad Lane Leisure team to find out a bit more about the company and what they are displaying at the show. I actually found out a couple of things that I had no idea about, which is what makes meeting dealers at the NEC so great.

The NEC brings together every dealer, manufacturer and supplier of the caravan and motorhome all under one roof, which can be quite daunting for visitors. One dealer I would suggest visiting is Broad Lane Leisure .

This midlands based leisure vehicle company is a family run business that has been providing their customers with both caravans and motorhomes for 50 years! Over that time they have become no stranger to award wins for their special editions models and actually created the first ever dealer special.

Over the past 5 decades this family business has been supplying a loyal customer base, some of which have been buying from them for over 40 years, with all of the touring needs. From awnings and accessories to award winning vehicles that can only been found at Broad Lane's two sites, they really are a one stop shop for your "staycation".

Broad Lane also want to share some vital tips and advice for anyone buying, or thinking of buying at the show. And I must say the advice really is worth its weight in gold and may just end up saving you a few bob and a rather long headache.

Broad Lane's Managing Director, Darren Brown, is enthusiastic about the touring world, which is something he attributes to the success of the company. They genuinely do love and care about the caravan holiday and everything that goes with it, which I am sure you will see in the interview we did with them this week at the Motorhome and Caravan show.
