The Explorer Group Limited is delighted to announce that Red Lion Caravan Centre has become an approved Compass Caravans retailer.

With their expanding site in Southport, Lee McArdle and the team at Red Lion were on the lookout for a new brand to enhance their business and appeal to their Customer base.

You may recognise Lee McArdle - or Lee Mac, as he is better known - as the UK retailer for Go-Pod teardrop caravans. The Red Lion Caravan Centre Director has his finger on the pulse and when we showed him the all-new Compass brand, he just knew he wanted to represent us.

“I chose Compass because I could see the quality in the new ranges: Casita, Capiro and Camino.

“The new 8ft vans in the Casita range, too, are a much needed addition to the caravan world and I want Red Lion to be a part of it."

Since their appointment in September, at the start of the 2017 Season, Lee tells us that 'interest in the all-new Compass ranges is steadily growing’ and he has every confidence in these exciting new models.

Rachel Moncrieff, Marketing and Communications Manager at The Explorer Group Limited, says: “It’s great for us and for Lee to see so many sales enquiries coming into Red Lion Caravan Centre on our new Compass ranges.

“Just this morning we have had another Red Lion sale confirmed for a brand new Compass Camino 660, which has been announced not only Practical Caravan’s ‘Best Caravan for Couples’ but also their overall ‘Tourer of the Year’.

“Lee is really passionate about Compass. From the moment he came to our 2017 Season Retailer Preview, he knew that the full-scale improvements and investment in ‘revitalising’ the brand had more than paid off.

“It’s great to have Red Lion on board as a Compass retailer and we wish Lee and the team continued success.”
