A Rushden company is urging people to grab their chance to buy a carriage fit for the Queen – after it acquired a caravan with a very Royal link.
White Arches Caravans has bought a caravan which the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh looked round on a royal visit to Bailey of Bristol last year.
Bailey decided to auction the caravan to retailers for charity and the Rushden-based firm made the winning closed bid.
One lucky customer now has the chance to buy the very same caravan.
White Arches joint managing director Steve Sharpe said: “It’s very exciting for us.
“It’s a great chance for somebody who is a Royalist, or has an interest in the Royal family, to buy a unique caravan.
“We are hoping it goes to somebody who absolutely wants it.
“If you said the Queen and a caravan, you wouldn’t necessarily have the two together.”
The lucky new owner of the “Royal carriage” will be supplied with a framed photograph of the Queen inside the caravan and a certificate of authenticity.
Whoever buys the vehicle will also receive an invitation for a Royal tour of the Bailey manufacturing plant in Bristol so they can enjoy the same tour as Her Majesty was given last year.
The new owner will also be able to share a similar experience to the Queen by sharing a lunch with the Bailey directors.
During the Royal visit, which took place on November 22 last year, the Queen accompanied by the Duke of Edinburgh, visited Bailey of Bristol to mark the 65th anniversary of the construction of the first Bailey caravan.
The Royal couple received a guided tour of the company’s South Liberty Lane production plant and looked around an Unicorn Cadiz touring caravan – which is the same one which White Arches is now selling.
Mr Sharpe added that the Unicorn is a top of the range model and it is a great vehicle for anybody interested in caravans.
