One of the main drivers for new product development is “solving a problem” and this is the clear reason behind the development of Cabbunk®

Richard & Jane Olphin from Blythe Bridge near Stoke on Trent have been motorhoming for years. When their two granddaughters arrived they looked for a way to take the girls away for occasional short trips.
They scoured the web for child cab beds and found them available only for older VWs. None were available for the new swivel seat cabs. Richard looked at the problem and found that it would be possible to secure the rear of a bunk onto the strong rear headrests of the swivel led seats, the front of the bunk could be held by conventional hammock pole brackets.

Richard’s first thought was to seek to protect his idea and contacted Swindell & Pearson local Patent Attorneys before being referred soon after to the BIC for support with their IP Fees. Swindell & Pearson work very closely with the BIC and knew that they could provide additional support to Richard with regard to product design, funding and marketing.

Cabbunk was launched in 2013 and the company has grown year on year with Cabbunks being sold all over the world and you can buy them at
