Build Specification

Whether you're looking for a luxury retreat for weekend breaks or a residential model for year round comfort, our latest collection of stunning holiday homes can be produced to a variety of build specifications, tailored to suit your chosen lifestyle.


All of our standard models are built to exceed the requirements of EN 1647, the European industry-wide regulation for the manufacture of caravan holiday homes. This specification dictates that compliant holiday homes are suitable for use as temporary or seasonal accommodation on a holiday basis, and are not suitable as a permanent residence.

All Willerby and BK Bluebird branded models are certified by the National Caravan Council (NCC) who work with many partners (British and European Standards Organisations, Health & Safety Executive, Gas Safe, Fire Inspectorate etc.) to ensure that the industry’s products comply and are safe. Every model that has been approved is licensed to carry an NCC Approved Badge. NCC

All of our products offer superior levels of structural integrity and thermal dynamics, as well as lagged water pipes for extra protection during colder weather conditions, providing comfortable and practical holiday accommodation.

Residential Build Specification (BS 3632)

If you wish to reside in your holiday home all year round, then you must select the British Standard (BS 3632) optional upgrade.

This standard defines the manufacturing specification that makes our products suitable for year-round use, including safety, acoustic and thermal insulation, construction and durability.

Additional Features:

• High performance wall, roof and floor insulation
• Gas central heating with high-efficiency condensing combi-boiler (where not supplied as standard)
• Low 'E' Argon-filled PVCu double glazing
• Enhanced ventilation in bathrooms, shower rooms and WCs

Please refer to Park Licence and associated planning conditions when selecting Holiday Home (EN 1647), Residential (BS 3632), or European specification versions of any holiday home model. Please note that in order to comply with the Residential (BS 3632) living space requirements, certain models will be supplied with one single bed in the second and/or third bedroom, rather than twin beds. All models also require secondary external doors (i.e. Outlook doors, such as French doors or patio doors) to meet the required specification.

Due to the complex volumetric space calculations required to meet the specification, BS 3632 is only available on selected models:

Further protection from the elements

Designed by Willerby to offer a more flexible thermal upgrade package, Therma-max is an option that provides the same insulation and window specification as BS 3632, but does not require the secondary external doors or the central heating system that are dictated by the residential specification. In addition Therma-max does not restrict the number of beds in the twin bedroom(s), is available on all models and it is not affected by the Park Licence conditions.
