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 25 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 and includes Lee Small, whom he has worked with, selling caravans, for well over a decade. They have great product knowledge, particularly on the Bailey and Lunar ranges. They are joined by Peter Appleton, who has almost 20 years experience working in the caravan and motorhome industry. This has enabled him to develop an extensive skill-set and knowledge base that prove invaluable to making sure the right caravan is found for the right people. 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

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. Everyone here would like to congratulate Linda on the birth of baby Ethan on 1st March 2016. She rejoined us last year and we couldn't be happier to have her back.

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.
