Learn more about the five major reasons why NeoTimber® composite decking is the material of choice for caravans and mobile homes.

As a mobile home owner, you will have bought a caravan for one of two reasons, as a permanent holiday retreat for yourself or as a business investment.

In reality, whether you are a young family wanting cheaper holidays or a retired couple looking for an additional revenue stream, you will want a little of both. Somewhere to stay, whenever you want, and some means of helping pay the bills.

Composite mobile home decking is a great way to improve the look and feel of your static caravan. As a mobile homeowner, you’re going to spend some time away yourself, so having somewhere to sit back and relax after the long drive to the coast is as beneficial for you as it is for your paying guests.

#1 – Composite Caravan Decking Is Weather Resistant

Composite decking is an ideal choice for caravan decking. Timber, whilst cheap, requires constant maintenance to prevent algae build-up, rot, erosion, splintering and cracking. UPVC plastic decking resists the elements but is typically cheaply made meaning it can bow under strain. It is also notoriously slippery when wet and so can become extremely dangerous. NeoTimber® composite decking is designed with both a grooved and an embossed woodgrain effect providing extra grip, even when wet.

#2 – Decking For Caravans Attracts More Business

Having composite mobile home decking is more than just practical. British weather is typically unpredictable so whilst sunshine is not guaranteed during the summer season, sunny spells are likely throughout. A composite deck enables guests to make the most of the sun by having a seating area which drains easily. Having this as an added feature for static caravan makes your van more appealing than one without and enables guests to view holidaying as a lifestyle choice.

#3 – Mobile Home Decking For Disabled Access

Making a home more accessible to the disabled, infirm or the elderly will only serve to increase the number of potential guests wishing to stay. Taking out an internal wall and lowering sockets will add to access but a ramp built from composite will bring them to your door, literally. No maintenance costs, no dangerous splintered or warped boards, just a composite deck, guaranteed for 10 years.

#4 – Caravan Decking Adds Value

It may be that you will wish to sell on your static home in the future. Investment in quality wraparound composite caravan decking which will stand the test of time will increase the value of your caravan and will make it easier to sell when the time arises.

#5 – Composite Static Caravan Decking Is Zero Maintenance

We’ve already touched on this, but the benefits are clear to see. If you don’t have to spend your free weekends traipsing back and forth to the coast to strip, sand or stain your caravan decking, you can spend that time, lounging around on it. You can enjoy your caravan decking for what it was made for, giving you the space and time to relax and unwind.
