We had a great time at the Motorhome Show last week. Four days of non-stop questions but we loved every minute and met some really interesting people. The two show vans we had at the show went down well and we lost count of the compliments for our choice of two tone paint and of course the unique Leisuredrive roof. Thanks to those of you that have since visited us in Sale and a biiiig thanks to those that have taken the plunge and purchased from us. To those that took our brochure/card at the show, we’ve extended the show offers until Feb 16th !
We’ve just returned from a Croatian road trip. Whether it’s the Roman History, the crystal clear waters of the Dalmatian coast, the Austro Hungarian architecture or the National Parks, Croatia has the campervan wow factor. Our favourites…The Amphitheatre in Pula, Dolphin spotting in Rovinj, Dining in Porec, Sight seeing Split and Trogir,Chilling on the Isle of Hvar and the walking through the amazing Plitvice national park. You have to see Dubrovnic too, but one day is enough…it’s crowded even in low season. Why is it so good for campervans?…
‘Wendy by moonlight’ – this week, we’ve been staying in Suffolk for the first time and pitched up next to Wendy, a lovely 1986 T25 Komet conversion. We often get asked about campsites and most of the time we stay on Caravan and Motorhome Club CL sites. We’ve found these to be the most picturesque, peaceful and stress free camp sites around….and usually for £10-£15/night all in.
It’s not a bad life…..last week we delivered a camper to Helen in Inverness. Setting out at 7am, we breakfasted at Tebay, lunched in Pitlochry and finally arrived in Inverness at 3.30. After our renowned handover session, we finally said goodbye to a very excited Helen and boarded our flight home…and the hottest place in the country that day at 26C….Inverness. Superb scenery, great roads, excellent food, a happy customer…..it was worth the free delivery…the Bridgewater Difference!
This Blue Vivante arrived with us at 4.30 pm one afternoon. By 7.30pm it was whisked away for an overnight sleep trial on Alison’s drive. By 10 am the next day, the decision was made…..and a couple of days later Alison and her friends were enjoying the comfort of this Platinum Vivante at the Blue Dot Festival at Jodrell Bank. Just 3 hours with us…a record!
‘Don‘t panic Mr. Mainwaring’ – those of you that might have been looking at our stock will see that they are selling like hot cakes……in fact we’re only half way through the year and we’ve already exceeded last years total sales. But don’t panic, we’ve got some great used vans in stock still and have new stock currently in production. Remember too that we specialise in building new campers to your spec…and all within 5 weeks.
Although 60% of our customers are couples, 32% of our 2019 customers are single women….with only 8% of sales from single men. And of the couples, 90% of the enquiries are from women…..thought we’d share this useless factoid!
