Family owned, well known and indeed recognised for supplying touring caravans throughout Western and Central Scotland, Halleys Burnhouse Caravans come to being as a company in 1948. The business was started by one of our current director's grandfathers after purchasing three caravans, one of which he decided to retail.
Now over 70 years later, the business is located in the pleasant North Ayrshire countryside and the small village of Burnhouse, where we have been established since 1985. Central between Ayr and Glasgow, a thirty minutes drive either way, Burnhouse is a great choice when thinking about your next caravan, service or accessory. Our current team at Burnhouse have a wealth of knowledge regarding all aspects of the touring caravan industry, its associated products and are ready to answer any enquiries you may have or advise you on any potential purchase, be it a brand new tourer or which kind of toilet chemicals to use once you've bought one.
New sales are represented by one of the most popular brands in the UK, Swift. For the 2022 season, we have decided to expand from mainly supplying Swift Basecamp and Sprite tourers to including the entire Swift range - Challenger and Challenger X, the newly reintroduced Swift Conqueror as well as the firmly established, luxurious Elegance. Since 2020, we have also supplied the exciting Edge range of motorhomes so have a plethora of options for every customers budget, layout and specification needs.
The award-winning Sprite range has a huge range of layouts, weights and price points to suit every current or potential caravanner and represent great value for money without compromise on comfort and specification and from 2018 this expanded, in a literal sense, to include 8ft-wide tourers to allow even more practicality and living space with the added inclusion of the single-axle Super Major 4 SB, a widened version of the popular standard width Major 4 SB. The exterior received a massive redesign incorporating Swift exclusive LED rear light clusters along with a bright and airy, retro themed interior in 2018 and for 2020 there was a new fresh set of decals and interior fabric options with the 'Langholme' soft furnishing scheme as standard. This is carried forward for the 2021 and now 2022 seasons, the main change being upper locker veneers for all doors except the kitchen lockers receiving the 'Aralie Sen' veneer treatment as seen throughout the rest of the caravan's interior.
The award-winning Basecamp range, has a style of it's own and customisable by you via optional exterior decal packs. Previous year's 'Plus' option pack as well as the unique 'SE' specification have been amalgamated in a standard fit offering with an emphasis on independent living - exterior points, including a BBQ, 230v and a shower point for rinsing muddy boots or bicycles, a solar panel on the roof and more. Both ranges are built using Swift's 'SMART+' construction methods, eliminating timber from the structure and incorporating balanced GRP panels, hail-resistant roof and a woven underside to build a strong, dependable tourer backed by a full 10-year manufacturer's warranty. For 2022 this further expands with the addition of the 6-berth Basecamp 6 model to allow the entire family to enjoy the outdoor experience of Basecamp!
The new for 2020 Swift Edge motorhome range is further built upon from last year's model which had smart new exterior decals and a new 'Aralie Sen' finish to interior furniture and addition of the family 466 layout to incorporate a new dashboard design from Fiat. Edge represents an exciting range of products geared to those looking to get a fun, practical coach-built motorhome for the possibly the first time with the extra security a product from Swift gives.
For 2022, the new addition to the Sprite family is the literal in every sense, 'Compact'. This tiny 2-berth tourer is just 6 foot 8 inches in width and extremely light at under 1100kg laden!
We also have a wide range of warrantied, approved used caravans from a variety of manufacturers including Swift, Sprite, Sterling, Bailey, Lunar, Elddis, Coachman Avondale and more. These range in budget, weight, layout and specification with many more added on a weekly basis - if you can't find something in our current line up, leave your details and we'll get in touch when we source something that does.
