Honest : Friendly : Reliable

Making dreams come true since 1998

Welcome To Richard Baldwin Motorhomes

We are a family run, family owned business with a rich heritage. Our service is renowned and has been award winning consistently over the last 25 years and counting. We are recognised by customers and industry insiders alike as being great innovators, not least with our multi award winning Special Edition Ranges. We hold what we feel are the two best British franchises in Auto-Trail & Elddis and we have held these two franchises consistently almost since we started. We are specialist in motorhomes sales only, we are not a caravan dealer who sells a few motorhomes, or a car dealer who sells a few motorhomes, or a hire company that sells their ex rental fleet. This means that our expertise lies purely in motorhomes.

When it comes to putting your hard-earned money into a new or quality used motorhome, then it will pay to entrust your business to experts like us.

After all, we are as our strap line says HONEST : FRIENDLY : RELIABALE
