Local Family Run Firm
Local family run firm, Stewart Longton Caravans, purchased the well known MG Rover Phoenix site in the centre of Chorley in August 2005 in order to have a dedicated Motorhome dealership within the centre of Lancashire. Since then the site has become increasingly busier with motorhome sales, both on new and used, concentrating on predominately the "coachbuilt" market, where we are extremely competitive with our pricing structure as we are with touring caravans. We are main agents for the excellent award winning "Bessacarr" & "Swift" brands which are the market leaders in style and evolution, together with a superb range of pre-owned motorhomes, sourced from around the UK as trade-ins or by direct purchase. We also offer our unique "brokerage" scheme where we sell motorhomes on behalf of clients.
As well as motorhomes at this location we also retail a selection of motorcars, all carefully chosen to represent value for money and affordable motoring. We are very particular on the cars we retail, all are sourced from carefully selected areas and from within the motortrade.
In 2010 the decision was made to take on the Bailey franchise for Chorley; and with the limitations on space at our Caravan site we decided to introduce the Bailey caravan range in at our motorhome dealership, thereby offering our customers a "one-stop" shopping experience- a car, caravan or motorhome ! With the new Alu-Tech construction that Bailey have introduced these caravans are now cutting edge in terms of technology, build quality and reliability. We have display models in all ranges on show, 2 inside our showroom permanently illuminated for your convenience. The entry level super lightweight Orion range, the family practical Olympus, the superb value Pegasus, and the flagship Unicorn ranges are all a delight to own and come with a fabulous 10 year water ingress warranty.
Gary Hall, the Managing Director of Stewart Longtons, said today "As a local firm we were well aware of the talk about what might happen to the site and we were determined to do everything we could to keep the Chorley connection. If the site had been sold to a large multi-national there is no telling what might have happened. As it is we have increased our stake in Chorley because we want to demonstrate our commitment to the local economy and be in a position to employ local people in the extra jobs that will be provided by our expansion."
