OLPRO celebrate high profile awards recognition with launch of new 2 year warranty on products

Following a number of recent high profile award wins, OLPRO have celebrated by launching a new 2 year warranty across all of its tents and awnings.

OLPRO, the UK-based camping and campervan equipment company, has recently been named as a finalist for 'Digital E-Commerce Business of the Year' at the FSB's Small Business Awards. This follows on OLPRO's success of being named the West Midlands' 'e-commerce Business of the Year' and the national runner up for the awards at the British Chambers of Commerce Business Awards 2019.

As a thank you to its customers, OLPRO have launched a new 2 year warranty for any tents and awnings purchased on the OLPRO website, from 11th February 2020 onwards.
 
Daniel Walton, Founder of OLPRO, said: “We're absolutely delighted to see OLPRO recognised for so many high profile awards and I think it's a great reflection of the attention that goes into making our high quality products. We want our customers to know that we appreciate all of their support and positive reviews and our new 2 year warranty is just a small part of our way of saying thank you.”

New Products for 2020

New Products for 2020

Growing Our Range for 2020

More New Products Than Ever Before.

2020 sees the release of some of the most exciting products in the 8-year history of OLPRO.  

At OLPRO, one of the few UK based camping & campervan brands, we have added significantly to our range of tents and campervan awnings for 2020 as well as introducing our first ever Caravan Awning – again with a typical OLPRO twist.

One of the most exciting developments and something we’ve been working on for some years is the introduction of two backpacking tents.  We are all walkers and this year OLPRO’s founder, Daniel Walton, has been involved in some pretty big adventures – firstly walking 187 miles around the border of our county, Worcestershire, and then finding his way back to Malvern from Oxfordshire without money or electronic devices. 

We all love a good adventure and the launch of Pioneer and the Voyager tents from OLPRO means you and a friend can go and explore somewhere new and have some where to stay overnight.  Incredibly at only £89 & £99, respectively, these tents are 1.9kg in weight with light 400g Alloy poles and 210T ripstop polyester fabric.

These are high end tents available straight from OLPRO at incredible prices. 

For families wanting to take longer breaks we’ve got the Wichenford Breeze back in stock for 2020 and we’re launching the incredible new Explorer 4 berth inflatable tent (above). 
 
It’s a tent that many have called our best already. 

It is fully inflatable, has a large bedroom at the rear, that can be split into two to give two bedrooms and the entire tent has windows and blinds on every panel.  We’ve also put skylights on the roof panels with a blind that can be pulled back or used to cover the skylights – giving you the option to let in more light during the day or be able to stargaze on an evening.

It has a large canopy at the front and is a no-holds barred quality tent for, incredibly, only £499.

Within our poled range of tents, we’ve added the very adaptable Orion 6 berth and the Spacious 7 berth Endeavour. 
 
As with all OLPRO tents now they’re ripstop OLTech Polyester 5,000 H/H and for 2020 will come with a 2-year warranty as standard.
Beyond tents we’re launching a poled version of our best-selling inflatable campervan awning – The Cocoon (below), for which we’ve already received enough forward orders to sell out the first delivery.  We’re advising customers to place orders for the Poled Cocoon Campervan awning as quickly as they can to guarantee they get theirs in 2020.
And for the first time ever we’ve ventured into Caravan Awnings by launching The View Caravan Awning in two sizes.  This inflatable awning fits all caravans, and everyone comes with it’s on attachable annex so you can give yourself more room when needed.  The front panels can all be removed, and it’s supplied with curtains and tinted skylights.

We’ve been creating campervan awnings for a long time now and using this experience and the experience of the team, who have created award winning caravan awnings in the past, we knew it would be good to put something out there for caravanners who wanted something different and, again, well priced.
 
With these products and many more 2020 is going to be an exciting year for OLPRO.
Father's Day Ideas.

Father's Day Ideas.

Father's day is quickly coming upon us, as it always does. What once was a distant dream is now a reality touching down with a couple of weeks. Now, don't despair, your friendly neighbourhood Olpro blog post is here to help with ideas for what to get that special man in your life!

 

The classic... A tent!

Just in time for the big day we have received a big load of stock so we are able to supply all of your camping needs! Whether it be a brand new POP Tent or a big Wichenford 8 Berth a tent can provide a lot of great quality family time and fun. Also, with Father's Day being the 19th of June it is perfect timing for a spontaneous camping trip!

See all of our tents here

 

A Caravan Mover

We have now started to stock caravan movers which are a near must have accessory for anyone who is serious about caravanning. A caravan movers basic feature is to accurately move a caravan into required destination such as a driveway or pitch. This device eliminates any physical labour which can lead to injury. The caravan movers that we stock can be fitted on your own, or we can provide a fitter to help.

 

Melamine

Melamine is a great gift for anyone who likes anything outdoors. We provide both 16 and 8 piece sets in various different designs. Melamine is better to use outside as it doesn't smash when knocked over. This is handy when travelling to and from your favourite camping destinations, as well as inevitable bumps and knocks on campsites.

Breeze Awnings

Despite working at a company that largely designs and supplies camping gear such as tents and awnings, I will be the first one to put my hands up and say that I am useless at putting up anything involving poles and fabric. This all changed however when I tried to put up the Loopo Breeze. This awning removes all difficult to use stiff poles and replaces them with inflatable inner tubes. This means all that you need to put up this range of awnings is a pump and a campervan!

So here concludes what I see as top picks this Father's Day! With great weather on the horizon as well I can't see a better reason to go outside with the family!

The National Caravan Club Rally 2013

By the end of the first day of the Caravan Club National Rally I needed new footwear. I should have worn wellies any way but in the rush to get here, as it always is, I managed to forget them along with any reasonable waterproofs. Ive been doing shows for around 13 years. Firstly, in my time at Towsure, then with Blue Diamond – usually supporting retailers at outdoor shows or at the NEC, a little with Discover and very occasionally with Maypole.

OLPRO is much more an outdoor company and being an Outdoor group of people we love these shows.

The Caravan Club National Rally happens every year. Last year was an exception when the event, on our doorstep in Worcestershire, was cancelled due to the lack of summer and the incredible amount of rain we experienced over that Jubilee weekend.

This year we’ve been at the Newark Motorhome Show, where there was a lot of snow, at the Peterborough Motorhome show and this weekend at the Caravan Club National Rally at Belvoir Castle in Grantham. For us it’s important to be at these shows and not least this one because its a great show for a good club with lots of members and members who appreciate quality camping and Caravanning product.

The event starts on Friday and finishes at the end of Bank Holiday Monday. During that time there is entertainment for everyone on site during the day and then through the evenings. This weekend we’ve got Martin Daniels, the magician, Scissors Sisters tribute band and an Elton John alike amongst others. Saturday nights main act was a Shadows tribute band.

The entertainment during the day involves competitions between different areas of the Caravan Club and groups of entertainers such as bands, axe men displays, horse displays and the like. We then make up an alleyway of traders who through the mud, as it was on Saturday, the visitors venture out to see us and it gives us a chance to speak to them and answer questions.

We are here to talk about our products and we have a limited range on offer, particularly chemical products such as Bottom & Top, Inside & Out and Fresh & Clear. It’s great already because so many people already know the products and many know us so it’s good to catch up with people. People we know well and work with are here selling products, such as Yorkshire Caravans, Towsure, Thetford, Specialised Accessories, Capital Stores and others who like us are talking to customers about their products and Truma and Dometic.

There are 2300 caravans on site. Because its a club event they are divided into sections or districts so all those from particular counties are grouped together.

We booked the show three months ago and a month ago started to think about what we would bring and how we would set up. We’ve still got to invest in the way we present at these type of shows but in effect, at the moment, we set up a marquee and place product on tables to sell the product. We don’t need more than a van full of product to start with but top up during the weekend with deliveries.

On the day before the show the van key disappeared! And so we had a last minute panic which ended in a call to locksmith and a large bill for a new key. This meant we turned up late on the Thursday, but in doing so missed the rain and the worst of the wind. We set up the stand and got ready for Friday.

Friday was awful straight away. The rain was coming down hard and blowing across into our marquee. For the first time I can remember we had to close early. The paths were very, very muddy and people couldn’t get around so we didn’t see any body and everything was getting very wet.

Saturday was very different. I got to the marquee first, at around 7am and inside was wet still from the day before and around it was muddy. We managed to dry things out and re-set up and the day just got warmer and warmer. Other stands were able to set up properly too and our neighbours, Specialised Accessories, who had lost their gazebo the day before had bought a new marquee and set up the best looking stand at the show – not bad given that they’d lost everything the day previous.

It started busier and got better and better. We’d spoken to lots of people about the OLPRO range of chemicals and sales of Bottom & Top , Inside & Out and Fresh & Clear were incredible. There are always lots of toilet chemicals at the outdoor shows and rally’s but Bottom & Top is a two in one product. All we do is inform potential customers that they can that single bottle of fluid and it works in both their top tank and bottom tank, so saving space. That it gives you more concentrated chemical than any other toilet fluid – so it’s two litres as opposed to 1 litre products and effectively is better value at £9.99 a bottle.

Caravan and Motorhome cleaning products are even more competitive. Lots of people bring cleaning products to the market, usually from other markets but Inside & Out is made for caravans and motorhomes. Designed to be a caravan cleaner, black streak remover, window cleaner, wheel cleaner, bathroom cleaner, plastic cleaner and fabric cleaner. We know that everyone who has used Inside and Out have continued to use it.

It’s important to us that people do try all of our range because as they say the proof of the pudding etc.

Our new chemical product is Fresh & Clear, for pipes and drains to clean, sterilise and remove lime scale from water systems. Fresh and Clear will effectively clean and sanitise clean water systems in caravans, motorhomes and also in boats. Fresh & Clear is non-staining and non-tainting.

Alot of the caravan cleaners on show here are really for cars or motorbikes which makes Inside & Out really different.

They are also all British made. The important thing to us is that we design all of our products.

Whether it be our toilet chemical, cleaner, or tents, windbreaks etc we design them all.

Sunday has started well too and lots of people are out again in the sun.

For us all it feels like about three years since we last had a summer but we’ve now had two good bank holidays in a row. Unfortunately, there are no campers in the Caravan Club so we don’t get to speak to people about ours tents but all in all a great show.

They have forecast rain for tomorrow but you never know! Fingers crossed be okay and the next stop for us on the road is the Midsummer Motorhome and Caravan Show in Exeter, at Westpoint between the 13th and 16th June. As well as weekend passes to the show there are also day passes available.

We are then at the Stratford Motorhome Show towards the end of June.

See you soon,

Daniel.
