Our History


Well-established as a caravan repair business, Auto-Trail began building motorhomes under Bill Boasman and Barry Holmes.


The early years were spent offering custom-built motorhomes on customer’s chassis.


As the company grew, the Auto-Trail ranges grew, with the introduction of the Cheyenne, Mohawk, Cree and Tracker.


A management buyout took place, resulting in Rob Gee becoming the new Managing Director of Auto-Trail.


The 2000s saw the introduction of more new ranges, including Frontier, Miami, Grande Frontier and Excel.


Auto-Trail built their first ever A-Class motorhome; the Grande Frontier, capable of handling larger payloads.


Following Rob Gee’s retirement, Stuart Turpin and Dave Thomas stepped up as joint Managing Directors to oversee the next period of growth.


Auto-Trail went from strength to strength, launching the Tribute, V-Line (SE and Sport) and Imala.


A multi-million pound expansion of Auto-Trail’s site in Grimsby took place, allowing production to double the number of vehicles produced.


Following the retirement of Stuart Turpin, Dave Thomas became sole Managing Director and began to plan for the new era of Auto-Trail.


With the campervan market booming, Auto-Trail launched the Adventure and Expedition ranges, including a unique van for cyclists.


Following the retirement of Dave Thomas, Shane Devoy stepped up to the position from Financial Director, bringing a vast array of industry knowledge.
