Future Designer


A student from Bangor University has designed a new lighting concept for The Fifth Wheel Company. Adam Edwards, a first year Bsc Product Design student designed a collection of LED lighting units for the company and won the most commercially viable award from Bangor University at the recent design degree show awards.

 

The project was part of an ongoing partnership between The Fifth Wheel Company and Bangor University, where the company have tasked students in developing new fixtures and fitting to enhance their products and also offer student placements throughout the year.

 

The first year project set to Adam and his fellow class member was to re-design the lighting within the caravans, this could vary from interior mood lighting to exterior styling lights. There were lots of innovative ideas including entrance lighting that displayed the company’s logo on the ground by the door to decorative multi-purpose bedside lighting which tilted to enable the light to be used as a reading light or background mood lighting.

 

Design Director Gethin said “The competition was very tough and there were many potential winners. Adam’s design was of a high quality and could be fitted directly into our production models; it stood out above the competition due its functionality, aesthetic appeal and the ease of manufacture. Overall it’s a great product as it combines excellent design and practicality.”

 

When asked what he enjoyed most about the project Adam said: “I enjoyed the freedom to create and to have the chance to create something that could actually be used in the caravan industry”. When pushed he admitted the hardest part of the project was in fact the electronics.

 

Managing Director Adrian had this to say about the partnership with Bangor University:

“I’m really pleased with the outcome of the project from all the students, I feel it is really beneficial to have a working partnership between local businesses and the university as proven by this assignment. I believe having a brief that gives clear direct link to the “real world” focuses the individuals and clearly gives great results.”

Fifth wheel co.

The Fifth Wheel Company is truly a family affair. Based in the stunning North Wales countryside of Rhuallt, Denbighshire, we founded the Fifth Wheel Company in 2002.

dream-seeker-north-wales

Originally set up by husband and wife team Mervyn and Jenny Parry-Jones in conjunction with their son Adrian – it wasn’t long before daughter Ceri moved back to join the team. So how did we end up designing and manufacturing fifth wheels? Well back in 1997, we managed a successful Massey Ferguson tractor dealership. Needing a comfortable base when exhibiting tractors at shows and events, we imported a fifth wheel from America. It wasn’t long before our new tourer was attracting interest among friends and colleagues. And this planted a seed in Mervyn’s mind.

“We loved the sheer comfort, luxury and flexibility of our tourer and realised that there was a gap in the UK market.”

In the 1990s the only option was to import from the US, followed by a lengthy and expensive process of conversion to ensure it met UK standards including brakes, electrics and gas systems. So when someone asked why we didn’t start producing them, we couldn’t think of a good reason. Within six months we had developed our first prototype of a UK version – more suited to smaller European roads and compliant with European standards – and the dream began to take shape.

“Since we started the Fifth Wheel Company in 2002, Fifth Wheel Co. have gone on to win numerous accolades, including The Caravan Club Design Awards five years in a row, been hailed as ‘the biggest thing to hit the UK caravan market in 20 years’ and achieved a verdict of 10 out of 10 by The Caravan Club Magazine.”

We’d love to meet you.
