Moran Motorhomes is a small family owned and run business based in Ludlow, Shropshire. We have been at our Ludlow site since 1998 and have been dealing with motor homes since 1989.
I, Roger Moran started a garage business in 1979 with my wife Helen at a small workshop in Leominster, carrying out general servicing and repairs on cars and light commercial vehicles.
Not too many years passed and a larger property was needed with room for a sales forecourt to start selling a few cars. A plot came up for sale next door to the garage and was ideal for our needs.
For many years I spent my time rallying but this became very expensive and time consuming so therefore I decided to turn my mind to speed hillclimbing. It was then, during 1988 that I bought my first motor home in order to go hillclimbing with my family.
This vehicle, an Autohomes Merlin, was found to be a bit small as we now had two children, Scott & Marie. It was placed on our sales pitch in Leominster and sold in a weekend.
The car sales were slowing down and soon there were more campers than cars. During the mid to late 1990's, Scott & Marie had both completed college and joined us in the business. The campers & motor homes soon took over as the main part of the business and more room was needed. This was found at our present site in Ludlow.
The hillclimbing we compete in has brought us varying success, many wonderful friends and thankfully a lot of customers! I managed to win the British Hillclimb Championship in 1997 with Scott managing the same feat in 2008 and has since won four more titles and become the most succesful driver regarding race wins in the history of the Championship. If I had not entered into the sport I would almost certainly say that we would not have grown into the business we have today.
At present we are Main Dealers for the fantastic range of motor homes offered by the Swift Group, as well vehicles manufactured by Auto-Sleepers, Burstner & Bailey. We believe that between the four franchises we can offer both new and seasoned motor homers a wide choice varying in size and budget. Due to the nature of our family business, we believe that we can offer you excellent service with our personal sales approach and after sales service.
We also regularly attend and trade at the Motorhome and Caravan show which takes place annually at the NEC Birmingham B40 1NT during February and October.
