It all started with the Trevelyan family and their two young sons, back in 1961, who were searching for a touring holiday with a difference. Resourcefully, they built their own motorhome based on a Morris J2 van, which took them to the South of France for their holidays. Learning valuable lessons from the prototype, they returned and incorporated design refinements into a second model, Austin-based this time, which soon attracted the attention of dealers Henlys of Bristol. Faced with an order for five more models, they employed local builder Bob Halling as a subcontractor, who was later employed as Works Manager for the company, and Auto-Sleepers was born. Today Auto-Sleepers remains a family orientated business and is still staffed by people who are passionate about quality motorhomes.
