Highbridge Hero

Well done to Peter Newman our Motorhome Valeter for recently finding £250 in a customer’s part exchange Motorhome that he was valeting and for contacting the customer straight away.  The customer was over the moon as they said they had mislaid the money and didn’t know where it could have been and thought it was in their house.  Honesty pays and now Peter can enjoy his generous gift that he received from the customer when handing the money back and some beers from the company.


Motorhomes have landed at Outdoor Experience

We are pleased to announce that the first quality used motorhomes have now arrived at Outdoor Experience.  Also, we are pleased to announce the signing of our new Motorhome Sales and Operations Manager Jody White for Outdoor Experience.  Jody has a wealth of knowledge within the industry and over 14 years’ experience in selling motorhomes at various dealerships and shows throughout the Country.  Jody is also a keen Motorhomer himself and if he isn’t on a Motorhome rally, then he would be just as happy on a Motorhome forum helping out his fellow Motorhomer’s.  Please check the website for Outdoor Experience’s latest motorhome availability.

The A38 connection – Devon based Outdoor Experience recently bought by Highbridge Caravans

For anyone travelling along the A38 between Plymouth and Exeter the name of Outdoor Experience is probably well known. Initially trading from a site adjacent to the dual-carriageway at Ashburton and, more recently from a site at Teigngrace, (near Trago Mills and opposite the British Ceramic Tile factory), the business grew from just selling camping gear to offering both new Bailey caravans and used caravans as well as caravan servicing. As the business developed, a website was added offering customers the option to buy suitable goods to be delivered. The 4 acre site at Teigngrace offers a modern caravan servicing workshop, large accessories shop as well as an outdoor display area for tent and awning displays and employs 13 staff. Looking to retirement, the previous owners, Roland Honour and his wife Sandra, chose to sell their business to Highbridge Caravans owned by the Davies Family. Roland and Sandra and their small team being a Family business, were happy that they chose the Davies Family to continue the good Family values that they strived for within their business. It is Highbridge Caravan’s aim, with the current helpful and friendly staff, to provide excellent choice and customer service for all Outdoor Experience customers, as can be expected at our main Somerset site which has developed over 50 years.

Highbridge Caravans being an established player in the industry, which has a large 10 acre site, again adjacent to the A38 at Highbridge near Burnham on Sea, Somerset, felt the purchase made perfect sense. This now enables the company to expand further into the South West and also to increase our offering in Devon by way of sales of motorhomes for the first time at Outdoor Experience. We also plan a large investment in improving all the current facilities on site and providing our Devon customers with a wider selection of both new and used caravans, motorhomes, shop products, awnings and motor annexes to browse. Watch this space for more information.

With the increase in ‘staycations’ due to factors such as the current relative weakness of the pound and security fears from travelling abroad, the position of camping and caravanning industry is looking good and British tourism will benefit as people enjoy all that this Country has to offer. Outdoor Experience in Devon, like Highbridge Caravans in Somerset are both great locations to visit whilst enjoying the south west in your caravan or motorhome.
