    We have used Chipping Sodbury Caravans many times. I cannot comment on the caravan and motorhome sale or servicing side of their business as we have only used for accessories and gas but have always found what we needed, great prices for a physical shop and the staff always helpful and knowledgeable. Can’t fault our experiences.
