Britain's Specialist Suppliers - Since 1988
Welcome to our Caravan, Motorhome, Boat/Yacht and Horsebox Upholstery & Furnishings website…
Just click the short video below for a brief introduction to what we offer!
BETWEEN US, WE HAVE OVER 269 YEARS' EXPERIENCE IN THE LEISURE FURNISHINGS BUSINESS!
I started this business in 1988, at the ripe old age of 21. In the beginning, it was very much a 'one man show' that operated from a small wooden shed beside the beach at Brean in Somerset!
Early one spring morning a huge wave washed over the sea wall and knocked our premises off its foundations!
"We just wanted to put into writing our grateful thanks for the wonderful upholstery and curtain make-over you have just completed on our Motorhome. We are absolutely delighted with the finished effect and the excellent craftmanship. It has made a huge difference to the overall effect and it looks like new! From the first moment we had contact with CBSCC, to the "big reveal" of the finished effect, all the team have been fantastic. We were greeted warmly and with courtesy by everyone. Nothing was too much trouble and every process was thorough and unhurried. Zoe was such a great help...she steered us through the process of choosing from the hundreds of fabrics, effortlessly. Leaving us to wander and ponder but readily available to advise. She took fabrics outside to the van and showed us the different effects in daylight. Her experienced views and advice were really appreciated. Thank you so much to everyone on the team for such a fantastic transformation!"

This prompted our move to Bristol and having outgrown our original premises we have now bought the building next door, which gives us a very much needed 22,000 sq ft of space! We are very proud that a great deal of our work continues to come from recommendation.
Our business has grown greatly over the years, to a current staff of over 30 people (none of whom are paid on commission) who now work in our factory and Showroom on the outskirts of Bristol, well away from the sea!
We're proud to say that more than a third of our loyal, local staff have been with us between 10 and 28 years and this, combined with our relaxed, 'non-production line' way of working, helps us give each member of staff a real sense of pride in the furnishings they're making-to-measure every day.
We are probably unique in having a permanent 3,000 sq ft Showroom, open Monday to Saturday 9.00am-5.00pm, to show you over 4,000 fabrics, as well as 20 foam types for you to sit and lie on.
We’ve also recently added an 80 foot long ‘Customer Workshop Viewing Walkway’ as we have nothing to hide and we actively encourage you to see how we work! Click here for more details on visiting us.
If you are unable to vist our showroom, then we are equally well set up to serve you, at a distance, wherever you are based.
WE DON'T RUSH YOUR ORDER!
We continue to work as we’ve always done… in other words our skilled staff take whatever time your order requires to do the job properly and professionally, rather than it be rushed by promising to start and finish it ‘while you wait’, all in 9 hours!
By us ‘booking-in’ your order into our production schedule, this means you can choose from over 4,000 on-going (non-clearance) fabrics, rather than just what we happen to have in stock on the day.
Here, we offer the same straight forward, professional approach that we've done for the last 31 years:
• A friendly, efficient and knowledgeable response to your enquiry.
• We give you various furnishing options and prices, all in a no-pressure, professional manner.
• If you decide to place your order then we ‘book it in’, giving you realistic timescales.
• Our VERY experienced staff simply use excellent quality materials and take as long as necessary, to create for you first class furnishings that you and we will be proud of!
• Not a cheap job, but a professional job.
We are all very determined that our reputation for friendly and efficient service will continue to be the cornerstone of our family run business.
"We would like to thank Lin Bond and all the staff at “The Caravan & Boat Seat Cover Centre” for the work they did in re-vamping our caravan. We have a 2003 Sterling Europa 480 caravan that we bought new, and after 15 years of use, the seats and cushions were showing their age with both fading and lack of support. I have attached photos of “Before”, “After”, and “Finished look”. We now have the caravan that we love, with an up to date look, for a cost of less than 10% of the £20,000 it would have cost for a new caravan. We would definitely recommend your services to anyone considering updating their upholstery."

What our Customers have to say
We are very proud of the positive things Customers have to say about us, here's just a dozen examples, with over 60 more Reviews available here…
"A big thank you to the team at CBSCC Ltd in Bristol. We were in two minds whether or not to change our Swift for a newer model with a brighter more up to date interior. Our Swift is in fantastic condition and has been well looked after. The PX offers were, to be honest, an insult. I was searching online for Caravan Upholstery specialists and your name came up. The rest, as they say, is History, from customer service through to the finished product Debbie and I could not be more pleased with the transformation, workmanship and great value for money.
The Curtains are a perfect fit. ***** Five Stars to a deserving company."
"Sally and I would like to thank you all for doing such a wondrous job on our Van. From the initial contact everyone has been welcoming and shown the professionalism that exists at Caravan and Boat Seat Cover Centre. We arrived with some preconceived ideas of what we wanted (or so we thought) but on seeing the array of materials on display we were put in a proper quandary. We chose something completely different to start and with some expert guidance from Nikki who has a much keener eye than either of us, we ended up with a finish that we can only describe as superb and for that we thank you a million."
"I don’t normally write reviews but feel CBSCC deserve this review. We were thinking about getting a new caravan as our interior was looking tired being 15 years old Upholstery and curtains where starting to show their age but rest of the van was still in great condition.
After a long search on the internet and contacting CBSCC we decided to go the down the road of recovering our seats. From start to finish the process was made both enjoyable and easy, by the helpful nature of the staff they arrange packing material and uplift of your old upholstery and nothing was too much bother to them. They also gave us great assistance in choosing our final fabric and sent us lots of requested samples to choose from. Special big thanks to Lin and the team at CBSCC."
“Would like to thank you folk for the quick response your Team have achieved, regarding our replacement soft furnishings for our rather elderly ABI 420ET Marauder caravan - 1996 vintage! After unpacking and trying everything out for size and position, we are delighted with the result, the new fabric complementing the original colour scheme, and with much improved support from the new cushioning! This now gives our well loved caravan a new lease of life - not to mention improved comfort for night-time! Thank you also for sending the fabric remnant - will use this to replace some of the curtains also! Brilliant job! Again, many thanks to your Team for their excellent work, much appreciated.”
“Just to say thank you so very much for the excellent work done by you and the team involved in the re-upholstering and new foam for our caravan seating. You made the process very easy and your advice was very helpful in making our final decisions I was a little worried about the fitting but they are perfect. I will not hesitate to recommend you to anyone.”
“We would like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to all the staff involved in the reupholstering of our camper van. You have carried out a first class job in a very friendly manner. As we are not local to your business, (we are from Portsmouth), we were a bit concerned about dealing with the job at a distance, but we should not have worried. From our point of view it was a very straight forward exercise. Nothing was too much trouble from the moment we arrived at your showrooms until we picked it up two weeks later. You even remembered to send a piece of material, sufficient to do a repair if we have any disasters in the future. We would have no hesitation in recommending you to our friends.”
“THANK YOU! Such marvellous service from the CBSCC from my initial conversation about the state of my mouse-chewed cushions to the return, on the day quoted, immaculately re-covered and renewed. I have been delighted with the service. Thank you all so much for your attention and the friendly and sensible advice I received. I shall have absolutely no hesitation in recommending the company and would be happy to give a testimonial if ever needed. The caravan is back in use already!”
“We both just wanted to say a big thanks to you for all your help recently in transforming our Funbus for us. It turned out far better than we ever dared to hope and we are super please with the result. We have now fitted the new curtains a job we won’t be repeating anytime soon... we will send over to you a couple of photos etc. We going to write an letter for the MMM Magazine (whether it’ll get published who knows) and maybe this will bring more clients flocking to your doors. Great Job, well done, just love it to bits. Please pass on our thanks to the lovely lady that did the job for us.”
“We are very much enjoying the comfort of a good nights sleep and the support of our new cushions when we are operating in “Office Mode” in our Camper Van. Thank you so much to all the team for their interest in helping us to get what we required in a colour, texture and pattern that we did not know we wanted and also in working hard to have them ready in unexpected record time. From our point of view we are extremely happy with the comfort and style of our home. Thank you so much.”
“After looking locally for a Caravan upholstery firm, and not being impressed, I used the web and found CBSCC. I placed an order and from the start to finish the service was 100%. We had a slight hiccup and CBSCC couldn't have been more accommodating. My cushions arrived and the quality was exceptional, I can't recommend them enough.”
“CBSCC are the only company I will ever use going forward for any refurbishment. From the day I arrived Nikki who I dealt with was fantastic I was given a finish date and on that date my furnishings were ready to pick up. I had my whole caravan revamped and I’m very pleased with the finished product. The quality and finish is second to none. Well done CBSCC!”
