The Caravan, Camping and Motorhome Show, held from 20 February to 25 February, is notoriously complex. Finding those hidden touring gems amongst the bright lights, wall-to-wall special effects and heaving masses packed into the labyrinthine halls of the Birmingham NEC is a huge challenge, even for those well-versed in the ways of the prestigious show. But there are ways to get ahead. Wear comfortable shoes. Stay hydrated. And familiarise yourself with the show in advance by studying the floor plan, picking out the booths that offer that rare combination of pedigree, performance and peace of mind across its touring products.
Stand 3150, over in Hall 3, is one such stand. This year, it's the home of Auto-Sleepers, a British brand that has spent the last 50 years crafting high-top and coachbuilt motorhomes at its headquarters in the Cotswolds.
Started by the Trevelyan family back in 1961, the company quickly grew and today prides itself on building quality motorhomes with a comforting style and British charm. The furniture, fittings and fitments of all its motorhomes are hand-built, maximising interior space. While there’s no such thing as a perfect motorhome, Auto-Sleepers comes close, as evidenced by a strong critical reception to its products and – perhaps more significantly – by owners themselves. The annual Practical Motorhome Owner Satisfaction Survey gave Auto-Sleepers a Silver Award in 2018.
Auto-Sleepers Van Conversions have long led in this competitive sector and for 2018 they have raised the bar even higher by increasing the specification on all models. Inside you find luxurious Limewash oak furniture with chrome fixtures and fittings with all-new designer Sagrada fabric options to choose from. With seven models, a range of chassis and two- and four-berth models available, there's a layout for everyone.
For 2018, the Peugeot Nuevo and Broadway Coachbuilt premium flagship ranges have gone from strength to strength, boasting an unrivalled specification. Auto-Sleeper Peugeot ranges for 2018 are all based on the licence-friendly 3500kg chassis and come with an automatic gearbox option.
The Corinium range, which successfully launched last year, offers a trio of fixed bed models including the company's first ever Island Bed model. Meanwhile, the Mercedes Coachbuilt range tops the portfolio and explains why Auto-Sleepers remains the aspirational brand of choice for many owners. It boasts excellent specifications and a vast array of driving aids alongside one of the best automatic gearboxes available on a Motorhome.
Visit Auto-Sleepers at this year's Caravan, Camping and Motorhome Show to see for yourself the specification and style across all ranges. Value for money is key with Auto-Sleepers going far beyond the bare minimum required in current legislation. Its products are built to last too, with a comprehensive set of guarantees (three years Auto-Sleepers, an additional three years water ingress giving six in total and a three-year unlimited mileage warranty) and a high residual value at resale.
