Away in Winter: How it's made the Auto-Trail way

It's been a long, old winter so far, but that hasn't stopped many of you from enjoying the great outdoors with your leisure vehicles. So, over the coming weeks, CaravanTimes will be releasing a series of videos celebrating Great British Winter Motorhoming.

One of the main reasons we're able to enjoy Winter Motorhoming in the UK is because of the way they're made in the factory. But some motorhome manufacturers are more unorthodox than others. So for the first video in our series, we've asked Nick Harding to visit Auto-Trail's main factory in Grimsby to discover just what they do differently in their factories.
