(Scroll down for more info on these).
We are also fully NCC Approved and carry out major insurance repairs, should any of our customers need an estimate for insurance purposes.

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.
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.
Mr P Richardson, Redditch
The service we received from the first time we looked at the caravan until we took possession of it far exceeded our expectations. The service we received was exceptional.
Mr Bennett, Bristol
Having recently bought my second new caravan from Stowford Caravans, I have no hesitation in recommending this company… Their philosophy is obviously customer is King because nothing is too much trouble… one often hears tales of woe but this is a first class company to deal with

We have always had good service from the Stowford Sales team, in particular the excellent handover and aftersales service. We have been so impressed that we have just bought our 4th Caravan from Stowford
Mr and Mrs Shipton, Devon
I am writing to thank you again for the excellent service that we received when we purchased a used Bailey ranger 500/5 today(13.09.2015). After a very trying time looking at caravans more locally it was a pleasant surprise to be treated so well with you. We will be recommending you to friends who are also in the market for a caravan.
Mr D Mears
Great Buying experience – the best I’ve had over the years!
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
Just a quick note to you all to thank you for the very professional and helpful handover last weekend. It was a pleasure to meet you all and a real joy to experience real service again (something pretty rare these days!).
Mr Moore, Bristol
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
From the warm greeting and smile at Reception to the professional support in Selection, sale and handover and the honouring of warranty months after the purchase, thank you. These honourable qualities, I believe, not only give great customer satisfaction but am sure provide repeat business. All of the above are very much appreciated.
