About Us

Proudly serving our customers for over 40 years.

Where it all began

In 1974 Barry Sharman started out as a mobile caravan repair & servicing engineer in the Ipswich and surrounding area. In 1982 Barry Sharman expanded his business and moved into our current site in Ipswich, Suffolk. This enabled him to offer caravan sales and accessories as well as caravan servicing and repairs.
Unfortunately in 1994 Barry passed away. Since then his son Paul Sharman has run the business and carried on Barry’s philosophy of offering great customer service as well as an expanding range of new and used caravans.
