UK Staycations: Buying a Caravan or Motorhome with Campbells Caravans (#AD)

Caravanning has been a staple for British holidaymakers for a long time now and, over the past decade, the popularity of motorhomes and caravans has notably increased. With the government giving the go-ahead for caravan sites to reopen after Covid-19 lockdown, a lot of people might well be considering taking a UK staycation of this nature.

Whilst many people typically rent a static caravan, or even a motorhome, more committed travel enthusiasts may also consider investing in their own. There is much to be said for having the freedom of your own caravan or motorhome as a base to explore different parts of the country whenever the mood takes you. And taking frequent short breaks can be great from a mental health perspective too. Owning my own caravan or motorhome (ignoring the fact I hate driving!) is something I have often dreamed of.

There are plenty of specialist retailers that sell both new and pre-owned caravans and motorhomes. One such retailer is Campbells Caravans, a family-run business at the forefront of the leisure industry since 1969.

Campbells Caravans

Based in Preston, Lancashire, Campbells Caravans has decades of experience in the leisure industry. When it comes to caravans and motorhomes, Campbells feel that having the option to peruse the different manufacturers in a single location, with their skilled and passionate specialised staff on hand to talk through options and answer questions, allows the customer to make the right purchase with confidence and support.

Naturally, the forecourts over at Campbell Caravans and Motorhomes are populated with some of the latest and greatest models from leading caravan and motorhome manufacturers in the leisure industry. They are stockists of several well-known brands including Coachman, Lunar and Swift, and last but certainly not least – Bailey of Bristol.

In terms of motorhomes, they stock both Swift and Baileys brands. They also have a selection of pre-owned caravans and motorhomes for sale too.

As mentioned above, one of the manufacturers that Campbells Caravans sells, for both new and pre-owned caravans and motorhomes, is Bailey of Bristol. This brand is known for offering a large and varied range of options for caravans and motorhomes of all experiences and budgets.

If you’re interested in a particular model, always visit the manufacturer website. They have all the information you need in terms of features and dimensions. And what I really like about the Baileys of Bristol website is the awesome Virtual Showroom for caravans and motorhomes where customers can take a 360º tour of their vehicles. This is great for exploring options prior to visiting!

Bailey is also recognised for their industry-leading construction techniques and technology, such as their Alu-Tech bodyshell construction (which cleverly uses an aluminium framework to clamp the body panels together). This makes them much more robust and durable, with the highest classification of thermal insulation. Bailey have taken their caravans and motorhomes all over the world from the Australian Outback to the North Pole, so there is no limit to your adventures!

Visiting Campbells Caravans

We all know that buying a caravan or motorhome is a major financial commitment. Your retailer is the best point of contact to chat through all the options available and get a proper feel for what will suit you best. However, do check before you visit how retailers are operating at the moment due to social distancing. More information on this and contact details for caravan and motorhome retailers can be found on their websites.
