A new leisure show for 2010 was announced at a press launch and preview today.

The three day show will be based at Royal Windsor Racecourse from March 19th to 21st 2010.

The organisers aim to showcase all aspects of outdoor leisure activities including:

  • Caravans and Camping
  • Boats and Watersports
  • Explore Britain
  • Extreme Sports
  • Motorhomes and Campervans
  • Outdoor and Country
  • Cars and Bikes

Camping facilities to allow motorhomers to stay on site for the weekend will be hosted by the Camping and Caravanning Club but will be open to non-members. MHF is already involved with the planning of the show and will have a presence in the traders area. We also hope to have a member camping area to allow MHF members to attend and enjoy the show in the company of other members.

The venue is located on the banks of the River Thames, close to the centre of Windsor with its stunning castle and many other famous visitor attractions.

Auto-Sleepers Group Ltd Return to British ownership with management buy out PDF Print E-mail

as_mboThe Auto-Sleeper Group Ltd (ASG) which includes the prestigious motorhome manufacturing brand of Auto-Sleepers and the UK’s  motorhome dealer network Marquis, has been subject to a successful management buyout from its parent company S.E.A (Società Europea Autocaravan) which is based in Italy.


The existing directors Geoff Scott and Mike Crouch, recently acquired 100% of the shareholding to become equal partners and return ASG into private British  ownership.


Geoff will continue in his current role of ASG Chief Executive Officer with Mike becoming ASG's Managing Director.


Geoff commented, “Auto-Sleepers and Marquis are brand names that collectively have 84 years of history within the motorhome industry. I am delighted and honoured to have the opportunity to continue building on the solid foundations of these well known British marques. It continues to be a turbulent marketplace, where long-term visibility remains clouded. However, despite the current market, Auto-Sleepers are experiencing a renaissance and I am confident that ASG will enjoy a successful future.”


Mike has spent the last 30 years working for Marquis and has been the driving force behind the retail division since becoming MD in the 2000. Commenting on his new role Mike says, “I am extremely proud that from humble beginnings, Marquis is today the UK’s largest motorhome dealer network.


When I joined the industry Auto-Sleepers were the leading motorhome manufacturer in the UK. I am relishing the challenge that becoming MD of both Auto-Sleepers Manufacturing and Marquis Retail will bring. I sincerely hope that, with my usual extra passion and enthusiasm, along with the current resurgence being enjoyed, Auto-Sleepers can be driven to its maximum.”
