Caravan Sales Team

New and Pre-Owned Caravan Sales

With over 35 years experience altogether, the sales team has a great mix of experience, enthusiasm and product knowledge to guide you through all aspects of purchasing your dream caravan.

The sales team at Winchester Caravans demonstrates a great mix of experience and enthusiasm. With a combined knowledge of over 35 years in the caravan industry, there is not much that our sales team does not know. They are always happy to assist you with the purchase of your new or pre-owned caravan or any caravan extras, like an awning or some accessories. They will guide you through all aspects of starting your caravan journey, from ensuring you have the right tow car to helping you choose the right layout and style best suited to your caravan needs. All without a hint of the pressure sale.

The sales team is led by James Mainwaring who has worked in the caravan industry for the past 20 years. He has great product knowledge, particularly on the Bailey range. Zoe Hall has joined the sales team after helping run the accessory shop for the last nine years. She is an expert on awnings and, as well as being able to guide you through your next purchase, has extensive knowledge on all of our accessories.Peter Southwood has re-joined the sales team after an amazing trip around Australia. He has been caravanning for years and his attention to detail is something that impresses all that he meets

The team has recently been joined by Russell Farrington. With over 40 years in the caravan industry there is not much Russell does not know, Russell is the experts expert and we are very lucky to have him as part of our team.

Without doubt, Linda Peckham completes the team both for the purpose of this overview and, most notably, on a day-to-day basis. Linda has been working for Winchester Caravans for over 10 years and provides the essential administrative support that enables the sales team to perform at their best. 

We have also been joined by Jane who brings a wealth of knowledge in customer care and administration. She will always do everything she can to help answer any querires and already is proving invaluable to the team.

If you have any questions relating to caravans, do not hesitate to get in touch with one of our sales team, who are always happy to help.
