    CAMPBELLS CARAVANS EXPANDS WITH PURCHASE OF READ CARAVANS Campbells Caravans is expanding with the launch of a third dealership following the acquisition of Blackburn based caravan and outdoor leisure business, Read Caravans. The purchase was completed earlier this month after former owners, Mark and Denise Holden, decided to sell the business to pursue other interests. Campbells will take over Read’s two-acre site on Whitebirk Industrial Estate in Blackburn, which includes a caravan showroom and forecourt selling new Bailey, Sprite, Sterling, Swift, Lunar and Venus caravans as well as a wide range of high quality used vehicles, and an accessory and awning department. The successful Aftersales Centre, based close by on Lower Phillips Road, will also become part of the Campbells offering and includes an NCC Approved Workshop, Service Centre and manufacturer approved Insurance and Damp Repair Shop. The move enables the 47 year old family run Campbells business to serve caravan and motorhome customers right across Lancashire and the surrounding counties from three premises, all of which are easily accessible from the M6, M61 and M65 motorway network. Director Daniel Campbell will head up the team at the new Blackburn site. He says; “Read is a respected and established family run business that has a loyal customer base and has received awards for customer satisfaction so there is a great deal of synergy with our own offering. We’re very excited to be bringing it under the Campbells brand and to be able to offer customers, both existing and new, an even higher standard of customer service. “A particular highlight for us is that all of the Read team have chosen to stay on. Whilst the name above the door will be different, customers can expect to see the same friendly faces and receive a warm welcome,” he adds. Joining Daniel at Campbells Blackburn will be Matthew Holmes, who has been promoted to Sales Manager of the new branch. Director Mike Barnes will remain at Lostock Hall to head up Campbells’ caravan dealership on Watkin Lane and the new dedicated motorhome showroom, which opened last Autumn on Croston Road.

  3. That is simply not true. Dealers have direct phone numbers for most people and departments. Is the dealer a Bailey dealer I wonder.
  4. Happens more often than you think with caravan abs panels. Seen plenty over the last 25 years.
  5. it certainly looks like ABS because GRP doesnt crack cleanly like that
  6. insurance only covers accidental damage not wear and tear or deterioration of seals
  7. I cant believe the opening post. you are paying a mobile to service your caravan, but yet he doesn't know how to complete a water ingress survey on an alutech caravan. my best advice is use someone who does know what they are doing.
  8. seen it before and usually caused by being jacked up on the chassis instead of either the axle or axle plate. you will need to support the caravan usually on the floor, and you will need to remove the axle and the damaged chassis member. The member will be bolted through the floor and could have possibly caused the head of the bolts to pull through the floor too.
  9. what about Nick at Newark Independent Caravan Services (NICS) http://www. newarkcaravans. co. uk/home/4581731743. very nice decent bloke and he is also a member on here http://www. caravantalk. co. uk/community/user/49649-newarkcaravans/ and he was a runner-up in the 2012 awards for best servicing vote for buy readers on here http://www. caravantalk. co. uk/caravan-talk-awards/2012-winners
  10. It doesn`t but it forms part of the contract of sale
  11. Massive Awning Clearance Sale http://stores. ebay. co. uk/readcaravans
  12. But it is in writing in the caravan handbook under the section covering warranty. It is also normally in the brochures. The warranty terms and conditions clearly state what is covered by the warranty and for length of time.
  13. it is and in my experience a judge wouldnt. the value of the product is a key factor
