Stowford’s Caravan Workshop facility, based in North Devon, can accommodate up to 14 caravans at any one time. Our staff are fully trained in every aspect of caravan repairs – from damp repairs to full panel replacements and each technician either holds or are working towards a range of industry qualifications in gas, electrics, and general leisure engineering. (Scroll down for more info on these). Should you purchase a caravan from us, Stowford Caravan Centre offers a unique handover experience where you are invited to stay on site for a number of complimentary nights and our Workshop are always on hand to support, advise or fix any problems should they arise so that you can be totally satisfied with your caravan by the time you leave.

National Caravan Council (NCC) Training Academy Certification in Electrical Testing and Inspection.
Under UK legislation, persons working with electricity must be instructed or skilled. This NCC electrical maintenance, Test & Inspection, course has been designed to cover the relevant skills that will provide a caravan service technician, the level of competence appropriate to carry out electrical work on touring caravans and motorhomes. The course is considered the minimum standard for anyone working on electrical systems within the caravan industry as a service technician.
National Caravan Council (NCC) Training Academy Certification in Electrical Systems and Circuits.
This course expands upon the skill base of the technician who has completed the Electrical Testing and Inspection Course and allows them to safely and competently carry out a wider scope of electrical work as part of a touring caravan or motorhome service. It is described as Advanced Electrical Training for Caravan and Motorhome Service Technicians.
UK Regulations require all persons working with gas to either be instructed (supervised) or skilled (unsupervised and qualified to sign off gas work). This qualification was formally known as ACoPs (Approved Codes of Practice)but has now been re-branded as STGW (Standards of Training in Gas Works). It is gas competence training for caravan and motorhome service technicians. It covers the key skills for gas safety; servicing, repairing and testing of the gas system and appliances; and issuing appropriate documentation.
City and Guilds in Caravan and Leisure Engineering.
In our eyes this course is the final qualification for a fledgling caravan and motorhome engineer to achieve after some months of experience, learning on the tools and having previously gained the qualifications listed above. The examination consists of both a practical and written assessment and would normally be achieved after approximately 2 years of experience.
We want to thank you so much not only for our lovely caravan but also for your wonderful aftersales service.
Wendy and Peter
I just thought I would put an email together to thank all the staff at Stowford. From the first contact right through to the handover and aftersales with a few minor niggles the staff have been polite and all wanted to help. I have to say I am very particular about purchases and nothing was too much trouble for the Stowford team.
Mr Wright, Bude
Your honourable qualities, I believe, not only give great customer satisfaction, but I am sure provide repeat business.
I am writing to thank you again for the excellent service that we received when we purchased a used Bailey ranger 500/5 today. After a very trying time looking at caravans more locally it was a pleasant surprise to be treated so well…
Our first weekend here has been fantastic and everyone has been first class from the minute we arrived, you’ve all made it so easy for us, especially as we’re new to caravanning.
We are so impressed with the Stowford level of service, it’s absolutely top class.
Mr & Mrs Manning
We have been buying caravans since 1989. All new and from all different manufacturers and dealerships and we can honestly say that this handover was the best we have ever experienced. Your workshop staff, office staff and anybody else that we came into contact with were extremely helpful.
Mr and Mrs Garfield
Thanks to you and your team for your monumental efforts in handing over our new Bailey Unicorn Seville last week in time for us to get away as planned. It really is reassuring to receive such good service and to always be welcomed with a smile.
The Handover procedure you operate is excellent.
Mr and Mrs Le Cornu, Coventry
Buying a Caravan from Stowford is a very enjoyable and memorable experience.
A big thank you for the excellent service that Stowford provided to us when we came to collect our new caravan last weekend. To get to the site and find the caravan had been pitched and the mains power was already in place was superb…. Our whole experience at Stowford was incredible and all new staff we encountered were always polite and very helpful indeed.
