What a different way to buying a van!

We thought we knew which VW we wanted but visits to various dealers left us without the answers we needed – until we found Bridgewater Campers on Google.


What a different approach to buying a van!  A serious effort to tease out exactly what we wanted in a friendly atmosphere with facts and laughter as good companions.. Suggestions made by John as he sought to understand our needs came thick and fast. We spent three hours discussing, looking at short and long wheel base vans, comparing finishes and VW models.

No hard sell; ample time to look, to listen and explore a range of vans and come back with more questions. John explained the different packages available and we felt confident enough to say yes. Phone calls were answered from both John and Pete with a cheery greeting, good information and updates .So, one very rainy day we came by train and were collected View Full →

We bought our first camper last September from John and Pete and the service we received was excellent. They gave us all the info we needed as newbies to the campervan life and ensured we were well looked after. So much so when we decided to upgrade in June this year we had no hesitation in returning. Again, we were given all the info we needed, they had the perfect swap for us and we picked up our new van a week later. Any questions they are always on hand to help, nothing is too much trouble and we would highly recommend anyone thinking of purchasing a camper to pay them a visit.

John and Pete are great guys and very knowledgeable about camper vans and everything associated with them. We bought our van from them about a month ago and we are delighted with it. We were complete novices and are still on a huge learning curve !! We visited their premises having pre booked an appointment with John and he had a variety of camper vans to show us. We had a coffee with him and he explained in detail everything we needed to know about which camper van would be most suitable for us. We only went up to look around and get a feel for what we might need but bought one on that day !! Both John and Pete have a very relaxed style and on their own admission, are not professional salesmen. John and Pete are great guys and very knowledgeable about camper vans and everything associated with them. We bought our View Full →

John and Pete are two of the nicest guys you could wish to meet. From my first visit with them they have been professional, knowledgeable, funny and most importantly extremely patient! No pushy selling, they fully understand and appreciate that buying such a purchase is very often a life long dream for people and they care… would highly recommend Bridgewater Campers. Thank you!

Wow, what a service, what a place, what fabulous guys. John and Pete didn’t just sell me a campervan, they helped me understand, find, buy, kit out, learn about and enjoy my dream vehicle.
From the first meeting with John in the early summer sun, sipping a coffee under the awning of a camper van, it was clear their passion and knowledge for all things campervans was fantastic.
Nothing has been too much trouble for John and Pete, and I have been a very fussy customer!!
I would highly recommend using Bridgewater Campers for a fabulous service where you are not hit with any hard sale, just with genuine, helpful and knowledegable advice and assistance.
Thank you so much John and Pete

I have known John and Pete for 18 months now, since I bought my camper during lockdown 1, and consider them to be good friends. They have been so supportive in helping me to realise my dream of a camper van with many bespoke features. I have had several experiences of buying leisure vehicles from a range of different sized dealerships and John and Pete definitely get the ‘Platinum award’ for their professionalism, ‘can do’ attitude, lack of hard sell and always putting the client’s needs first.

We have had many shared stories and laughs along the way which is unlike any other purchasing experience and so I don’t hesitate to wholly recommend Bridgewater Campers if you’re considering a leisure vehicle.

John and Pete graciously put up with months of back and forth with us, until we finally decided exactly what we were looking for.
The van is perfect – we’re so thrilled with it. I’ve also learnt a huge amount throughout the process, which is really useful and testament to the time the guys have invested in answering my endless questions!Nothing has been too much trouble, and the end result was well worth the wait during their busiest period.The aftercare since delivery has been excellent. Both John and Pete are friendly, great fun and always just a phone call away. They really go above and beyond. We stumbled across Bridgewater by accident, having spotted the Vivante layout with a rear kitchen, which solved a very specific issue we’d found with rented pop top VW campers previously……having a kitchen that is always full head clearance, and never obstructed by beds, was a game changer for View Full →

The Bridgewater Difference………… John and Pete are genuine, knowledgable and enthusiastic about the campers they sell. Their advice and patience throughout the buying process enabled me to make the right decisions and buy the van that was best for my circumstances. After sales has been exceptional too. They truly want the customer happy and will go above and beyond what’s required to make sure this happens. I can’t recommend Bridgwater Campers highly enough. Thank you very much Pete and John.

We were blown away by Pete and John at the Caravan and Motorhome Show. They were a real “tour de force” in understated salesmanship. Their knowledge of their products, enthusiasm and energy combined with humorous anecdotes and the sheer amount of time spent made for a very fruitful and enjoyable visit.
They very quickly understood what our needs were, for example whether the van could be manoeuvred up and down our drive comfortably. Talk about going the extra mile! They came out twice from Sale to Prestwich to check this out despite our not having made any commitment to buy a van at that time.
Since we bought our Vivante which we are delighted with, Pete and John have given freely and generously of their time to help us.

If you want to make your campervan dream a reality, look no further than Bridgewater Campers. We made the trek over from Lincoln. There is no hard sell by pushy salesmen…John and Pete offer honest, impartial advice aligned to your requirements. Pay them a visit ( kettle is always on), and make that dream happen……YOU WON’T BE DISAPPOINTED!
