Caravan Sales Team

New and Pre-Owned Caravan Sales

With over 80 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 or motorhome.

The sales team at Winchester Caravans & Motorhomes demonstrates a great mix of experience and enthusiasm. With a combined knowledge of over 80 years in the caravan and motorhome 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 leisure vehicle or any caravan or motorhome extra, like an awning or some accessories. They will guide you through all aspects of starting your caravan or motorhome journey, from ensuring you have the right tow car to helping you choose the right layout and style best suited to your needs. All without a hint of the pressure sale.

The sales team is led by James Mainwaring who has worked in the leisure vehicle industry for over 20 years. He has great product knowledge, particularly on the Bailey and Swift ranges. Zoe Marie Hall joined the sales team 7 years ago after helping run the accessory shop for 9 years. She is an expert on awnings and, as well as being able to guide you through your next purchase, has extensive knowledge of 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. Neil has been enjoying his own caravan for many years after thousands of miles of travel and many, many weeks in his caravan his knowledge and experience should not be missed. Neil will always find the time for a chat and a chance to chat about his favourite past time. Russell Farrington is an industry legend and a great addition to the team with over 45 years in the caravan industry. There is not much Russell does not know, Russell is the expert's expert and we are very lucky to have him as part of our team. We have also been re-joined by Peter Appleton, he has worked in the industry for 24 years and is an expert on both caravans and motorhome. He is our Morothome expert and will always have time to take your through what can be quite a daunting process.

Kevin joined our team as dispatcher / External Valeter. Kevin has many years or caravan knowledge and will be sure to try and pass on as much of this to you as possible and make collection of your new caravan or motorhome go as smoothly as possible.

Without a 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 and Motorhomes for over 18 years and provides the essential administrative support that enables the sales team to perform at their best. 

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.
