Flintshire Caravans History

Flintshire has grown considerably since 1972, although we are happy to say we have never lost sight of the reasons for this growth, which is the relationship we have with our valued customers, and loyal suppliers. With this support and loyalty, we have been able to become one of the largest retailers of new and used touring caravans and equipment in the North of England. We continue to expand and offer the best value and service, whilst extending our hand of friendship to local community businesses and charities.
