Premier Forest Products ‘Superva’ features on Channel 5 show

The team at Premier Forest Products was delighted to see one of their most popular products appear on a Channel 5 show, thanks to their work with specialist van re-fitters, Redruth-based Ecowagon.

Earlier this year Ecowagon was approached by a family hoping to transform their van into their dream motorhome, as part of Channel 5 programme ‘Million Pound Motorhomes’. For this inspiring transformation, Ecowagon, which specialises in turning VW T6 and T6.1 vans into campervans using sustainable materials and techniques, used their go-to lightweight plywood, Superva, throughout.

As the family had invested their savings and money from an inheritance into getting their van transformed, Ecowagon Managing Director Kenny Green and his team knew they wanted this van to be extra special.

They worked with Superva to create the bespoke look envisaged by their experienced designers.

Superva lightweight plywood, which is supplied by Premier Forest Products, is designed to suit the specific needs of the leisure industry and widely used to fit out campervans, motor homes and caravans. Superva is made from an exterior-grade lightweight plywood core, to save weight, and High-Pressure Laminate (HPL) for enhanced wear on one, or both sides of the board.

For this project, Ecowagon went for a classic cream plywood which contributed to the overall sophisticated, quality finish of the van.

Kenny Green, Owner, Ecowagon said, “We’ve worked on so many of these conversions over the years and every single one is different, which is why it’s great to have a product like Superva available to give us so many different, high-quality options. This conversion was very much the customers’ choice and they knew they wanted to have a high end finish so, Superva really was their best bet and I’m so pleased with the final result.”

Heather Broad, Superva Sales Executive, Premier Forest Products said: “We loved seeing Kenny and the Ecowagon team on Million Pound Motorhomes. Working in the industry we’re always fascinated by the programme and it was lovely to see some familiar faces, especially using Superva that we’re so proud of.

“As Kenny has said, everybody wants something different when it comes to their motorhome and we love working with people to find the perfect product to complement their vision – Superva really does have something for everyone.”
