Find out about South Hereford Motorcaravans, including our heritage, values and friendly staff team. All of our staff play an important roll within our business as part of our Sales & Service Teams to provide a pleasant customer experience throughout their motorcaravan journey.

A family business

South Hereford Motorcaravan Centre was founded by Dave and Julie Franklin over 30 years ago. In 2011 the company relocated to a new sales location which is on the A40 Southbound at Whitchurch, between Ross-on-Wye & Monmouth. Moving premises has enabled SHMCC to display approximately 60 – 70 New and Used motorhomes. Starting with the addition of new Swift motorcaravans in 2011 the company expanded even further in 2019 adding Auto-Trail & Roller Team franchises to their portfolio. This means SHMCC are now able to offer over 90 different models across 3 manufacturers. We are enormously proud to be recognised as the largest Swift Kon-Tiki dealer in the UK since 2018 and this continues through 2021 Season. Dave and Julie are still active within the company but their son Kristian Franklin now handles the day to day running of the business alongside fellow family member Shaun Howells.
