Starting in the early 1980’s, Kimberley has grown to be one of the largest caravan and motorhome dealerships in the North East and East Midlands and one of the country’s leading suppliers of Coachman, Compass, Swift and Xplore caravans.
The business began life as a small plot of land with a few caravans for sale and with many of the original loyal team it has blossomed into the large successful business it is today with sites based in Nottingham, Darlington and more recently Chesterfield.
Now For The Hat Trick
Having developed two large and successful branches at Nottingham and Darlington it was time for a third. The third branch of Kimberley opened on 18th October 2021 stocking Compass, Swift and Xplore caravans and motorhomes as well as a large selection of used leisure vehicles.
One branch became two with the acquisition of the Burtree branch in Darlington and Kimberley Caravans and Motorhomes becomes one of the largest dealers in the UK.
Kimberley were becoming widely known by this time, having started exhibiting at all the major caravan shows such as the National Exhibition Centre (NEC), Manchester and London.
New Site Purpose Built Site For Kimberley
The whole site was subject to further investment in 2001 when the old building was replaced with a new purpose built site to include a state of the art 10 bay workshop, brand new accessory shop, large outdoor caravan display area, offices and a customer care centre.
