Keep up to date with the progress on our new motorhome showroom build due to finish in September 2018. It's in a 5 acre plot just off the M6 at Stafford. Watch as progress develops with our time capsule
It’s not the first time Travelworld have made big changes with our showrooms. We did a whole refurbishment project a couple of years ago. The re-opening of this was attended by Hymer Group representatives. This time, we are going bigger and better. We have a brand new showroom being built just off the M6, near junction 14. Our new showroom is being built on a five-acre site in Stafford North, at Cresswell Park. Work on the project began in January this year.
The new Travelworld motorhomes showroom build is now well underway and the whole team is very excited about what the future holds as we move onwards towards this next stage in the life of the Travelworld brand. A grand opening is planned for September 2018 but stay tuned for more information on that as the site build continues to develop.
This is what our new showroom will look like:
With this in mind we wanted to keep everyone updated on progress as the site takes shape.
We’ve added commentary from social media, industry magazines, and some photographs of the initial turf cutting and shots from an aerial drone who has been visiting the site to keep us updated on progress. We hope you enjoy keeping up with our journey.
Follow along with our timeline of activities. Our Travelworld new showrooms ‘time capsule’. We’ll also continue to keep everyone updated via social media so follow along on Twitter and Facebook.
Here’s the timeline of events as they unfold:
In November 2017 we announced plans to build our new service centre and showrooms. Social media and industry publications shared the news, as well as ourselves of course.

Hooked Up Magazine also shared the news. Our Managing Director, Ross Edwards, was interviewed by Hooked Up Magazine on the exciting announcement and the interview took pride of place as December’s Hooked Up Magazine cover story. Ross confessed to “not being very good at keeping secrets and joked of how it had been painful trying to keep the news from everybody.”

By January 2018 it was time to cut the first piece of turf marking the beginning of the build. Several members of the Edwards family spanning 3 generations took part in the ceremony at the new site.
We shared shots from the drone tracking progress via social media. Keep up with the journey via Twitter. The land was all prepared now and time to start the main build.
