About Chelston Motorhomes
Chelston have now been supplying Motorhomes for over twenty years and we have developed an unrivalled reputation for quality, choice and customer care. With the key expansion of our previously owned selection we are now able to offer a choice of over 80 quality new and used motorhomes at any one time. We are the main dealers for Autotrail, Autocruise, Adria, Burstner, Bessacarr, Tribute, Mondial and Escape and always have a full stock of all the very latest models from these ‘Premier’ brands.
Team Chelston is the collective name that we give to the entire workforce at Chelston Motorhomes. This is because we all work together to ensure that our customers receive the full benefit of our support and expertise during the sales process and indeed for years after they have purchased their Dream Motorhome. We at Team Chelston have been so successful that we have won quite a few awards over recent years.
20 years of Chelston Motorhomes
In 1973 Brenda and Stanley Eyles purchased Snows Garage on the A38 near Wellington. The Chelston Brand was born when they renamed the business “Chelston Motors and Petrol”. 1986 saw the first appearance of Motorhomes on the site... and the rest, as they say is history!
By 1988 the Motorhome business was booming and it was in this year that Chelston made an enormous leap forward when they obtained their first official franchise with Autotrail. Chelston’s reputation was already high but in 1989 upped its prestige even further by securing its second Franchise, this time with Burstner.
By 1998 the original site was beginning to get extremely overcrowded. Having outgrown the site the decision to was taken to purchase land on the Business Park at Chelston with the aim being to develop a brand new Motorhome and Caravan Centre. In the spring of 1998 the first turf was cut and the building began in earnest. The building was finally completed and opened by MP Jackie Ballard in 1999.
By 2002 the business had expanded enormously. As well as the original franchises of Burstner and Autotrail, Chelston had added Bessacarr to its impressive portfolio. Expansion was sorely needed, so in 2004 the decision to open a New Service Centre on the estate was taken and construction began.
2005 was a seminal year for Chelston as the much anticipated Service Centre was finally opened. This purpose-built Service Centre is fully Fiat Approved and has the capacity to service, repair and MOT more than 40 vehicles at any one time. 2005 was also the year that Chelston were awarded franchise status for Orian, Tribute and Adria.
2011 saw the introduction of the Autocruise franchise to add to Chelston's already impressive portfolio.
2012 and beyond will see Chelston creating new standards in excellence and customer care. Product expansion will continue and new areas developed such as internet shopping.
2013 Saw Chelstons brand new service department open. Situated adjacent to sales the new service building is a modern facility that allows us to coordinate sales and service much more efficiently due to the two departments now being joined on the same site.
2014 we open a brand new MOT centre and bodyshop on the new Service Department site.
