Caravans & Motorhomes

Venture - Over 40 years in the making

Venture was established in 1971 and has gone from strength to strength. Below is a quick history of our commitment and passion for the caravan and motorhome industry. We are now firmly established as one of the leading caravan and motorhome dealers in the country with a wealth of experience and knowledge gained from over 40 years in the touring industry.

2013 New Improved Sales Area

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.

2011 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).

A big change. The petrol station canopy is removed to make way for more customer parking, better access and more caravans.

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.

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.

1971 The Beginning

The Beginning

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).
