Til­shead Car­a­vans

Practical Caravan - - Buyer’s Guide 2018 -

Til­shead Car­a­vans, in Wilt­shire, was set up by Mal­colm and Mar­i­lyn Red­shaw in 1979 as a car­a­van-hire busi­ness.

The firm moved to its cur­rent home on the Hamp­shire/ Wilt­shire bor­der in 2000, but it wasn’t un­til 2006 that it started sell­ing new Swift vans; partly at the sug­ges­tion of Swift Group, which was im­pressed by the num­ber of new vans it was buy­ing from other deal­ers for its hire busi­ness.

Til­shead took on Coach­man in 2012 and, along­side sales and hire, there is a small shop, an awning dis­play and an Aws-ap­proved ser­vice cen­tre.

James Red­shaw, one of the sec­ond gen­er­a­tion now in the busi­ness, says the deal­er­ship re­main­ing a fam­ily busi­ness is one of its key strengths: “We know that we need to get the ser­vice right.”
