The Great British Land Rover Show, Stoneleigh Park, 25th November
Last Sunday, we visited The Great British Land Rover Show, at Stoneleigh Park in Warwickshire. Set over two large halls at the National Agricultural Centre, the show gave thousands of Land Rover owners from across the country the opportunity to see and, most importantly, touch some of Paranoid’s latest bits of kit. The feedback was, unanimously, positive, with everyone who tried the Defender Drawer Systems remarking on how well engineered and made the system was. With almost 10 years of development and engineering behind it, it didn;t come of much of a surprise, but it’s always nice to know your work is appreciated by those that would use it. We took a number of orders through out the day, thanks in no small part to the presence of Shane’s beautiful 110 Utility on our stand. You’ll be able to read all about the details of Shane’s build very soon, but, suffice to say, he’s thought about every modification properly, and made excellent use of space and equipment; basically, he’s our type of guy! We also launched the biggest competition we’ve ever hosted, details of which can be found here. It gives one (incredibly) lucky person the opportunity to have their vehicle build by Paranoid, with more than £20,000 of the best equipment money can buy. Not only that, but we’ll be taking them on a funny funded overseas expedition, with full survival and driver training! AND their vehicle will feature on Paranoid’s show stands during 2019 and 2020. What a prize! We love what we do. Not just the engineering side of things, but the entire expedition and overland world. Which is exactly why we’ll only sell products that we’ve used and tested ourselves. If we don’t know it works, how can we sell it to our customers, all of whom come to Paranoid because they want the best, and nothing but? So it comes as no surprise to customers that we sell products from other, (very) carefully chosen manufacturers; such as Dometic. We won’t fit cooking or cooling products from any other company in our full vehicle builds, and we also refuse to sell anything less. We had special show prices on a number of their high end units over the weekend, and sold almost all of our not inconsiderable stock throughout the day. Everyone loves a bargain! We had a number of our favoured GreenSport tents on display during the day too. The South Africa-based company are renowned across the globe for their world class canvas tents, and we have used ours in some of the harshest environments imaginable without issue for years now, so we have no problem recommending them to customers. A number of show-goers took advantage of reduced show prices on these, taking home tents that will last them for years!
