The Auto-Sleepers Story
No ordinary company.
No ordinary motorhomes.
It all started with the Trevelyan family and their two young sons, back in 1961, who were searching for a touring holiday with a difference. Resourcefully, they built their own motorhome based on a Morris J2 van, which took them to the South of France for their holidays. Learning valuable lessons from the prototype, they returned and incorporated design refinements into a second model, Austin-based this time, which soon attracted the attention of dealers Henlys of Bristol. Faced with an order for five more models, they employed local builder Bob Halling as a subcontractor, who was later employed as Works Manager for the company, and Auto-Sleepers was born. Today Auto-Sleepers remains a family orientated business and is still staffed by people who are passionate about quality motorhomes.
In 2010 Auto-Sleepers branched out into the manufacturing of high specification quality caravans. Using all the skills they’ve honed over 50 years of leading the motorhome industry, Auto-Sleepers under the brand name “AS Caravans” are now able to offer a prestige top end caravan in 3 layout variations.
Auto-Sleepers has over 50 years experience in meeting the needs of customers who are looking for the best in British-built motorhomes. Based at Willersey in the Cotswolds, we still take great pride in our hand craftsmanship and design expertise. Great time, care and effort go into the making of an Auto-Sleepers motorhome and AS Caravan and it shows. The furniture, fittings and fitments are all of the highest quality, modern and stylish coupled with quality and innovation, all hand built to offer many years of pleasure. And because our designers use and live with our motorhomes and caravans, they know from experience what works and how to make the best use of every cubic centimetre of interior space. Thats why so many of our customers keep coming back to us.
