JC Leisure was established in 1997 and for many years we were based in Strand Garage in Winchelsea. Finally in 2017 we took the decision to move lock, stock and barrel to the much larger Lifestyle Park, just along the road in Rye Harbour. Here we can display a full range of new and used motorhomes, and we also have a great selection of Caravans. Now we can offer our customers, not only a huge car park, but a large storage yard and we are also expanding into Motorhome Hire.
Dave and Eileen Waller and Lance Collins have many years experience in the industry and we have formed a great team around us. We are very proud to be agents for both Autotrail, Dethleffs, Globecar, Tribute, RollerTeam, Sunlight and Swift Motorhomes as well as Hymer and Compass Caravans.
Please watch this space for our 7 bay specialist workshop which is relocating from Appledore to Lifestyle Park in Rye in 2018. Our workshops were awarded NCC Approved Workshop Status in 2014.
Yes! We are always looking out for quality used motorhomes, so we are able to buy your motorhome, campervan or caravan from you. We can provide you an instant motorhome valuation using our onsite motorhome valuation tool. Don’t forget to let us know the Make and Model of the Conversion! If you decide to sell your motorhome to us, we can pick it up from anywhere in the UK.
We can offer a range of payment options and terms, including cash, or payment straight into your Bank Account. We may be able to offer you a better return if you decide to go for our Motorhome Brokerage option. For more information, see our Selling My Motorhome page, or give us a call.
This depends on your age and the vehicles MAM (maximum authorised mass). The MAM is the combined weight if the motorhome plus the maximum load it can carry.
You won’t need a special licence if your Motorhome is up to 3500kgs, which means you will be able to drive all but the largest motorhomes on our forecourt. Anything over this weight may require a higher category licence, depending on your age and when you passed your driving test. Applying for these licenses may require a test. However, most coachbuilt and panel van motorhomes will be less than this weight, so there should be no problem. If you have any questions about a particular motorhome, please get in touch. For more information, go to the Motorhomes Section of the UK Government website.
The speed limits in UK and outside Europe can vary from country to country.
Within the UK, Motorhomes can follow the same speed limit as cars, unless their weight is more than 3050kgs. In this case, the limit is 50 mph on Single Carriageways and 60mph on a Dual Carriageway.
