And what a year! It was one of our busiest years and now in 2018, it is an existing year for us – as we will be celebrating our 15th year in business.

Our often exclusive agreements with parts manufacturers in the UK, Germany, Italy and other European countries ensure we only stock the most premium quality and durable products available. All  proven to be ideal for the leisure vehicle sector.

As 2018 kicks into gear, we have a lot of new leisure vehicle products to show you – and lots of new parts manufacturers that we have engaged with.

It’s going to be an exciting year!

 

New Blog Post: Internet while on the move!

December 2017

We all want the internet wherever we travel - even though we are not meant to look at the phone while on holiday. Often, when arriving at remote locations and caravan parks, there is either no internet at all, or a pay-for-wifi service available from the main lodge.


Grassroutes Leisure has sourced new products to enable internet to be available in the leisure vehicle.


We launch with two new products:

WiFi booster/repeater - which, as the name suggests, boosts a wifi signal. In more detail, it has an external aerial which you mount and rotate towards the wifi signal. Within the van, there is a small unit which then re-broadcasts the signal over your own private wifi network. This means that if you are accessing a pay wifi service, you only pay for one user (rather than for everyone in the van).
The aerial also picks up the signal from up-to 1.5km away - so makes it a much stronger signal than you could get just using a phone/laptop.

4G Mobile Internet Wifi - which consists of a small external aerial which can be permenatly mounted. It connects to a small internal unit which you insert a sim card into. Then, wherever there is a mobile signal, you can access the internet from within the van. It creates your own private wifi network meaning up-to 5 people can use it at the same time. Like many of the premium car brands, this product now enables you to install a mobile internet service in every van conversion.

Both devices external aerials are completely weatherproof and can be permenantly mounted.

Wait. What?


That’s right – we are leading the way with technology and gadgets for campervans, caravans and motorhomes. If you have never heard about QI wireless charging, here is the summary:
Some mobile phones have wireless changing capability built in. A lot of the Nokia and Samsung phones (such as the S7 and S8) have it built in. You may have also heard that the new iPhone has just launched with QI charging capability too.

Grassroutes leisure has a range of exclusive Vohringer ply which we supply to the leisure vehicle building sector.


Taking its name from its manufacturer Vohringer (V-Group), Vohringer ply is a popular and versatile light-weight hard finished veneered ply board, made in Germany. It has been traditionally used for interior furniture in motorhomes, caravans, campervans and even horseboxes since 1971. Vohringer ply is available in two thicknesses 15 mm and 3 mm.


Vohringer takes pride in being environmentally friendly and only use sustainable products using renewable materials from organically cultivated forests where forest depletion is avoided. Their production methods are performed with environmentally friendly and renewable raw materials. All of Vohringer’s partners are being certified to the Forest Stewardship Council’s standards of environmental quality.


Vohringer ply is a proven product and does not delaminate over time. The manufacturing process has been developed over 40 years and uses PUR hot melt glue that is water resistant and the latest laminating machinery and highly skilled staff. Only Ilomba/ Poplar plywood from Italy and Spain with a density of just 470 kg/m3 is used, making Vohringer ply easy to cut. Using Vohringer Ply for your leisure vehicle builds can only enhance and add value to these builds.
