Winchester Caravans sells new tourers from Bailey and Swift, along with a selection of pre-owned models from various caravan manufacturers.

That’s not all though – the dealer also offers awnings from leading manufacturers Dometic, Dorema, Isabella and Vango (if you’re looking for one, be sure to check out our best caravan awning guide), and an extensively stocked accessories shop.

At our Owner Satisfaction Awards 2023, Winchester Caravans won a Gold Award in the best new caravan supplying dealers category, prompting co-director James Southwood to say: “We’re over the moon to win the Gold Award for the fourth consecutive year!”

“We prioritise exceptional customer service in all that we do and we are thrilled that this translates well and that our customers feel well looked after. Ensuring that all our customers receive the service that they deserve, and also one that perhaps exceeds their expectations is our core aim. We have many customers that return to us time and time again which speaks volumes.”

James took over the company with fellow boss David Cole back in 2015 (it was formerly the Winchester branch of another dealership, Chichester Caravans).

He adds: “We’re still in the same location in Colden Common and many of the friendly and experienced staff remain the same. We value our staff and receive a high level of loyalty in return, with many employees enjoying long careers with us.”
