New Improved Sales Area
In January 2013 we revamped our new caravans section at our Daventry branch by removing the gravel and having it tarmacked. What a difference - there is now a clean, level and easy to walk on surface whilst looking around the latest offerings from Adria and Bailey caravans.
New Accessory Shop
With the workshop relocated to another part of the Venture Caravans, A5 site, development of the sales area and accessory shop can forge ahead. Believe it or not, this is the same area that is pictured in the 1971 photo below (from a different angle).
Daventry Expands (Again)
This picture taken in 2011 shows one of our sales areas which we expanded into in 1992, the access road was added in 2006, the workshop was built in 2010. With this area and our other sales area, we offer one of the largest caravan displays in the Midlands.
With a further commitment to customer care, we start the building of our purpose-built, and now NCC approved, workshop and aftersales department, which is now fully operational.
New Forecourt, No Petrol
A big change. The petrol station canopy is removed to make way for more customer parking, better access and more caravans.
Venture From The Air
With Caravans seeming to pop up all around us, Jack takes to the air in a Comanche aeroplane to record this lovely picture of our busy little dealership. At this point expansion into the adjacent field had not yet happened. that was to come later in 1992.
Abbey & Boomerang Caravan Line Up (Daventry)
Throughout the 70’s camping grew in popularity and we expanded in to the sales of new and used caravans. We started selling Adria Caravans in 1978 and later became a Bailey Caravans dealer in 1992.
Venture Caravans first started in 1971 as “Go Camping”, selling petrol, tents and trailers. Petrol was the main business, with a camping shop also being run from this site (which was also the family home).
