There are many other examples.
I had always thought it a simple matter. We have static caravans, then we have double width units, the latter being sold as a lodge.
The definition of a lodge, is “ a small house at the gates of a park or in the grounds of a large house, occupied by a gatekeeper, gardener or other employee”.
So, where does that leave this debate ?
The top end caravans with res spec, canexel and bigger sizes are being called single lodges by manufacturers, I think quite rightly as they have the same residential features as their larger equivalents. However, a lot of these are only getting 15 year licence!
I think if it has all these features it is what it's called and should be given a longer licence.
Just my opinion mind.

Rainbow, yes it has become very interesting. One reason why I raised it was that the park I am on will rent out lodges for you (at a price of course) but not caravans yet under a wooden skim that’s exactly what they are!

Yes, it was the Knightsbridge lodge. Lodge was just a name to them. They tried to persuade us to buy one but it was being sold as a caravan. Obviously, it all depends which park you are on. Like I said before, as far as Park Leisure are concerned, it must come in two parts to qualify as a lodge. It may or may not be their personal opinion, but it’s their Park so their rules.
