Hopefully you all had a good Christmas and New Year and are looking forward to 2022.
As we head in to the new year, we are looking forward to introducing new products that will make your caravan, motorhome, camper van and camping trips easier.
New for 2022 is the roll out of our Colapz Ambassadors and we would like to introduce them to you. You will find them posting on social media and can follow them there!
Who are our 2022 Ambassadors?
Hi guys, we are The Long family. We are made up of Elaina (that’s me!), Mark, our daughter Arabella (10) and Maggie our Boxador. We are absolute beach lovers and our van trips always lead us to the coast. Find us in the sea swimming, surfing and bodyboarding with the occasional bit of paddle-boarding thrown in for good measure. Spontaneity is our game and we love nothing more than deciding on a Friday to load up the van and head to the beach! We are fairly new to van life but we have embraced it whole heartedly and get so much pleasure from sharing our adventures, especially all the tips and tricks we have learnt along the way.
We are over the moon to be asked to join Colapz as brand ambassadors. We are a family of 5 with 2 small Maltese dogs, from Staffordshire. We bought our first caravan in August 2020 due to the pandemic. We have always loved our holidays and we were missing them. Owing our own caravan meant we could go on holiday but still have our own safe place. It offered us a feeling of freedom, but also familiarity. I can’t see us ever not having a caravan now. We go away in it as often as we can and miss it so much if we have a few weeks off (which we rarely do!).
We love the colapz products. It’s difficult to pick a favourite but the utility bag would be up there as it’s so versatile. We’ve got so many uses for it that we could do with a few more!
We are the Addis Family from Shrewsbury, Beth, Dan, Oscar & Jacob. We also have two dogs Luna & Reggie.
Our caravanning journey started in 2019 when we purchased our first caravan, after many years enduring wet weekends in a tent. It has soon become our home from home, where we make the best memories and enjoy family time all year round.
Away from the caravan, our spare time consists of football, long walks, motorsports & plenty of lego.
Our top three Colapz products would have to be;
1. coffee cups - for us, these are just so convenient when we have football at the weekends with Oscar & Jacob, especially in the winter months. We also use them in the car when travelling to sites with the caravan.
2. Trunky - super easy to use & brilliant for places where you can’t get your aqua roll in a good position to fill up. To be honest, we don’t even try to get the aqua roll in the perfect position now we just use the trunky because we love it.
3. Dog bowls & water bottle - well because they are just brill and so convenient to take out & about with us. We like to do lots of walks with the dogs & when we pit stop for a beer, the pups get a little drink & snack each from the bowls ☺️
We’re a family of five, plus Stan the Sprocker. We’re so passionate about instilling the love for the outdoors in our children, that we decided two years ago to invest in Daisy our T6 camper. We absolutely love the freedom she offers us, not only for camping trips but for day trips too. As a family of 5, space saving is very much a priority for us, which is why we love Colapz so much!
We are a Family of 4 plus dog, Rachel, Lex, Benji, Toby and Hugo the mini dachshund. We were new to caravanning in 2019 after we purchased our caravan (named rather creatively Bailey by Benji) and started on a huge adventure as a family. We document the good, the bad and the ugly of caravanning life as it happens!
We randomly started our caravanning journey after Lex had the idea when on holiday at a Spanish campsite in a static caravan which featured touring pitches. A few days after returning, we were on the hunt for the perfect caravan in typically British weather of pouring rain. Then less than two months later we were toasting being the proud owners of a brand new Bailey caravan, nothing like leaping in feet first! It's been a steep learning curve and we are still learning each and every trip, but we love every second, yep even the bad and ugly bits!
What else for 2022?
We are looking ahead to The Caravan, Camping and Motorhome Show from the 22-27 February at Birmingham NEC. Hopefully we will see lots of you there at stand 5204, please come and say hello to the Colapz team!
Our new Colapz 20 litre system has been the focus of our design and planning in 2021 and should be ready to launch in 2022. You can register your interest here if you want to find out the latest news.
All the best for 2022 from all of us here at Colapz.
