New Mobile Homes
Costa Difference Ltd are UK dealers for two UK manufacturers, Regal Leisure Homes and Willerby Holiday Homes. That means you have quite a choice of homes to purchase in the UK and then have us ship the home over to Spain for you. You will own the home in the UK the moment it has been paid for which means buying a UK mobile home to go over to Spain is totally risk free. That is because the home is yours as soon as it leaves the factory, bought and paid for.
Regal Leisure homes in Wareham, Dorset offer a good range of homes suitable for Spain. Regal homes are purchased by our clients through us as Regal UK dealers for the parks we represent in Spain and then their homes are transported to go onto their chosen park. The warranty on the home is supplied by the manufacturer and full details of the warranty that comes with the home can be found using this link.
The prices of the homes themselves are the recommended UK retail prices given by Regal Leisure on their website. Transportation costs on top of the price of the home are £5850.00 plus VAT for homes up to 12 foot wide and £7770.00 plus VAT for homes up to 14 foot wide.
For Paradise Park there is a 2500€ charge for installation/entrance to the park. On Park La Posada and Corrales Park there is no charge for homes manufactured by Regal.
Willerby Leisure Homes are built in Hull and they have a show ground at the factory. Most of their homes are suitable for Spain. It is important to contact us first if you have your heart set on a particular Willerby model as not every model can be adapted.
The prices of the homes are the recommended UK retail prices given by Willerby holiday homes on their website. Transportation costs on top of the price of the home are £5850.00 plus VAT for homes up to 12 foot wide and £7770.00 plus VAT for homes up to 14 foot wide.
Willerby homes are purchased by our clients through us as Willerby UK dealers for the parks we represent and then their homes are transported to go onto their chosen park. The warranty on the home is supplied by the manufacturer and these are the full warranty details as supplied by the manufacturer.
The Willerby warranty will cover the first 12 calendar months from the handover date of your new holiday home on all items within your holiday home.
There is a further 2 years on all items listed: Willerby Ltd manufactured fitted furniture, shower cubicle and shower door, all taps, sanitary ware, radiators, baths, internal doors & internal door handles, gutters/downpipes, cladding, kitchen sink, sockets/switches, dinning table & chairs and upholstery (seating).
Also a further 4 years (after the initial 12 months) for the structure of your holiday home on areas such as: Chassis, roof, walls, ceilings, floors, and external windows & doors.
Willerby do not offer any extended warranties other than that provided above.
Who carries our repair work?
Willerby have their own engineers who carry out warranty works but on occasions they may subcontract other repairers that are qualified to undertake the types of works required such as Electricians, Plumbers and Siting Teams. Willerby will also instruct their suppliers to carry out warranty works if the defective product is not manufactured by Willerby.
How do I make a claim?
If you have a query or issue with your holiday home, you should first contact the company who sold you the Willerby holiday home i.e. your park or approved Willerby distributor. If they are unable to answer your query or resolve the problem, it is then their responsibility to contact Willerby on your behalf.
Transportation costs are £5850.00 for homes up to 12 foot wide and £7770.00 for homes up to 14 foot wide.
For Paradise Park there is a 2500€ charge for installation/entrance to the park. On Park La Posada and Corrales Park there is no charge for homes manufactured by Willerby.
Buying your new UK manufactured home is carried out in exactly the same way as it would be if it was going onto a park in the UK. The distributor or park arranges transport from the factory on wards. You will own the home as soon as it has been paid for in full. Costa Difference Ltd then insures your home the moment it leaves the factory with a separate “goods in transit” insurance. This means that there will be two insurance policies covering the home. The transporters own policy plus the “goods in transit” policy.
Purchasing your home in the UK means it is subject to UK VAT which is 5% for non residential spec and 0% for residential spec. White goods are charged at 21%. Manufacturers retail price advertised always include the VAT. It is NEVER added on afterwards. The only extra charge will be for transport.
Manufacturers are also informed when a home ordered for a client is destined for Spain so it is regarded as an export model. This only effects things such as electrical plugs and wiring. European spec can also include wooden flooring. Warranty issues are dealt with by sending any parts required direct to the park and where possible the manufacturer will instruct a local tradesman to carry out the repair. In very extreme circumstances where a local tradesman cannot be found a repair team has been sent from the UK.

BUYING A NEW HOME
Buying a new mobile home or a custom-built Park Lodge Home is just as easy. It simply involves different processes. For UK manufactured mobile homes we recommend Willerby/BK Bluebird and Regal Leisure Homes.
Both manufacturers display show homes at various mobile home shows throughout the year, so you can always get to see the latest models. Regal Leisure also have the big advantage in that they are not far from Yeovil our UK base, which means we can easily arrange factory visits.
For Park Lodge Homes designed and built in Alicante it is a different process. Once a plot has been reserved you can start designing a home best suited to where it will be going. Where to put a French Door? Where the lounge should go? What view from the kitchen window?
To help you design your home we allocate a project manager to you. He will arrange a visit to the factory in Alicante so you can see for yourself all the choices you have. You can even start with a model already designed such as “The Windsor” and alter it to suit you.
No two Park Lodge Homes will look the same which means you can make the home into something special to you. You will also not be paying so much money to transport the home to the park as it will already be in Spain. This means more can be spent on the home itself.
New UK mobile home or custom built Park Lodge Home? The choice is yours after you have reserved your plot on either park. New homes require a 35% deposit and the balance paid once the home is ready to be transported.
WHY COSTA DIFFERENCE?
The name Costa Difference was chosen for a reason back in 2005. Costa as in Costa del Sol or Costa Blanca, and Difference because we want to show the difference between dedicated genuine residential mobile home parks and tourist camping sites that also allow mobile homes.
Making a difference is all down to being passionate in what we do. We are also working with park owners who share our passion. The result? We are showing two wonderful residential mobile home parks that are without doubt the best retirement parks that Spain has to offer.
Having chosen to represent residential parks only we are now tasked by the park owners to help people see for themselves if living in Spain is really for them. Spain does not suit everyone which is why that aspect of what we do is so important.
So where does our service start? We think that perhaps it has already started with you reading this and all the other information we have provided online. Maybe you now have some questions for us? If so please feel free to contact us and ask them.
Once you feel that you have found all the answers the next stage is to seriously think about coming on a visit to see a residential park and the lifestyle the residents enjoy.
On a short-dedicated visit you will have a golden opportunity to talk to residents you meet whilst on the park. Asking them questions at the time is a great idea because you will be hearing about their genuine experiences.
The Costa Difference way is very different. Our testimonials come from the residents themselves face to face. They have all gone through the same experiences. Started by asking questions, then came on a visit. After that it is back to the UK with plenty to think about.
If you do the same and moving to Spain becomes your dream, then we are going to be with you all the way.
There are many “Costa” companies on the internet selling everything to do with Spain but there is only ONE Costa Difference Mobile Homes in Spain. To find us again easily why not bookmark this page. We are at your service.

LATEST NEWS FROM SPAIN
Air-traffic controllers at Barcelona’s El Prat have announced a series of 24-hour strikes over the summer in an ongoing dispute over staff shortages.
The industrial action by workers from the air-traffic control centre at El Prat will begin on June 20th, a few days before the school holidays here in Spain and the summer holiday season really gets underway.
The dates of the 24-hour strikes have not been confirmed as yet but any action will affect flights in and out of El Prat plus flights to the Balearic Islands and airports on Spain’s eastern coast.
The strikes have been called by the Air-Traffic Controllers' Union (USCA) which is embroiled in an ongoing dispute over staffing levels.
USCA has repeatedly warned that there are an insufficient number of air traffic controllers to cover flight traffic forcing controllers to work overtime in order to provide cover.
