The Hutchings Collection

In June 2015, the Caravan and Motorhome Club Collection received one of its most significant donations to date. The Hutchings Collection is an archive containing images and ephemera relating to Bertram Hutchings and his company Bertram Hutchings Caravans Ltd, later known as Winchester Caravans.

Hutchings Caravans were among Britain’s most prestigious caravan manufacturers and this collection spans the existence of the Winchester-based company, from 1911 to 1958.

Work is currently being undertaken to catalogue and digitise these items and we will be bringing you highlights from this unique collection over the coming months.

Add Something New to the Collection

The Caravan and Motorhome Club aims to develop the Collection to represent its history as fully as possible. Thanks to generous donations from members of public, its Collection is a continually growing resource.

The Collection contains a variety of objects, ephemera, photographs, sound recordings and film which relates to its history and founding fathers. It is also interested in material relating to general caravan history and manufacture such as trade brochures.

The Caravan and Motorhome Club is regretfully unable to collect caravans, motorhomes or associated vehicles.
