About Us: Tamar Campervan Hire Plymouth
With more than 30 years of experience in the industry, we’ve undergone a lot of changes, but remain a family-run business with a commitment to delivering exceptional customer service and high-quality repair works.
When Rob Paige retired as one of the Directors, we approached Ben May – who has been a local businessman and entrepreneur for over 20yrs in Plymouth. He joined us as Operations Director in January 2022. Ben’s skills and experience will continue to help Tamar Caravan Centre to grow. Tamar Campervan Hire, Plymouth, is Ben’s first step in expanding our offering and he will be heading the business, helping the company to reach it’s full potential.
About Us: Early History
Tamar Caravan Centre are a long-established Plymouth based business, who are proud of their roots.
We started life as ‘Tamar Trailer Centre’ back in 1983 when it was founded by Geoff and Sandra Wray. Based in Sugar Mill Business Park, Plymstock, the company had a reputation for providing a high-quality service and when the time came to sell up and move on, this excellent reputation led Rob and Tim Paige to purchase the business in 2005.
Shortly after Rob and Tim took over the business, they decided to move premises, so we moved to Valley Road, Plympton in early 2006. We continued selling trailer parts as well as servicing and repairing trailers and fitting towbars to customers across the city but were always looking forward and thinking of the next service to add to our repertoire. The opportunity arose in 2011 when caravan servicing was introduced after Simon Graham joined the team and merged his mobile caravan engineering business with us.

In 2016, we became ‘Tamar Towing & Caravans’ as we began selling Swift caravans (becoming an Approved Swift Dealership in the same year). We quickly became one of the biggest retailers and leading dealers of Swift caravans in the South West and have gone on to win ‘Approved Dealer of the Year’ in 2017, 2018 and 2019!
