Auto-Sleepers has been an established name in the motorhome world for over fifty years.

The company was founded by the Trevelyan family in 1961. In the search for a unique touring holiday experience, they built their own motorhome using a Morris J2 van as a base. Having learnt some valuable lessons building the prototype, they incorporated design improvements into a second model. The order book quickly swelled to five, bringing them to the attention of local dealers Henlys of Bristol. Bob Haling was employed as works manager and the Auto-Sleepers brand was brought to life.

After fifty years of successful motorhome manufacture, Auto-Sleepers introduced its first range of luxury touring caravans in 2010.

The last word in luxury

Auto-Sleepers CEO Geoff Scott explained the company believed there to be a gap in the market for a high spec, luxury range of caravans built for the higher end of the market,

Named after lavish London hotels the Grosvenor, Mayfair and Kensington are kitted out with luxurious fittings and fixtures and sit firmly at the higher end of the touring caravan market.

Each tourer is built on an industry leading AL-KO chassis with alloy wheels. There's an extensive range of high quality fittings and furnishings including the Whale wet central heating system, a portable handheld vacuum cleaner, hairdryer with built in socket and a top of the range Thetford swivel toilet.
