About Caravans West
A good partnership between a caravan manufacturer and a caravan dealer has plenty of SYNERGY:-ie both benefit from the relationship. Good Dealers only sell good products, so when the opportunity to become a Coromal Dealer arose Alan Bell jumped at it.
July 1st 2000 saw the start of the new Dealership. Since then,steadily growing in size, we have won these national dealer awards :
The Coromal Owners Club of Victoria Inc (Coromal Rovers) is seeking new members for weekend rallies and outings, membership is limited to owners of a new or used Coromal Caravan , Camper Trailer or Pop-Top.
Alan Bell's Story
Alan started in the industry in 1973 in Gosford NSW, servicing and repairing caravans around the district. In 1989 Alan relocated his family to Coffs Harbour NSW,and commenced a new Caravan Repair business--ABCO Caravan Services was established, steadily growing over the next 7 years to become the largest repair centre in country NSW. In 1996 Alan sold the business to the present owners, who carry it on to this day.
Alan took up a position with Regent Caravans in Victoria as Service and Warranty Manager,and later as Production Manager of the Monarch Crusader Range of caravans and pop tops,after 3 years it was time to move on.
In December of 1999, Alan established CARAVANS WEST in Sunshine North as an independent Dealer/Repair Facility, the rest is history, growing in size and turnover to become COROMAL's third largest distributor in Australia by 2007, and the largest Distibutor in the Eastern states of Australia.
