Who We Are

Hillside Leisure has changed a lot over the years but at our core, we are still the same family business that was established by the Cross brothers in 2004. To this day Hillside is still owned and managed by Adrian and David Cross. Both of them have many years of experience in the motor industry as well as enjoying camping with friends and family.

Based in Derby, we realised years ago that there was a serious shortage of high quality campervans that were flexible enough to be used more than once or twice a year. Being enthusiastic campers ourselves, we knew all too well the hassles of going on holiday in traditional caravans and motorhomes; most of them are too big for anything other than parking on a campsite and staying put. So we developed our own range that is not only suitable for exploring your holiday location with ease, but that could also be used just as well as an everyday vehicle.

What We Do

From our factory in Derby we design, build and sell our range of campervans. Rather than sit on your drive all year round, our core models are designed to be easy to drive and suitable as everyday vehicles, while maintaining a high level of quality.
This is all achieved using hands-on research, allowing us to develop the most efficient techniques and acquire the very best tools and technology from around the UK and Europe. Combined with the workmanship of some of the best British craftsmen in our industry, we have created a range of campervans and motorhomes that are not only of the highest quality, but also combine traditional values with modern technology and styles to create the perfect campervan for today.

What sets us apart

What truly sets us apart from other manufacturers is the standard that we strive to achieve. As a family run business, we know how important family is. Our campervans are built with that in mind, to be as safe as possible. With that as our focus we have NCC approval for many of our campervans, along with European Community Whole Vehicle Type Approval for all our VW Transporter T6 models (the highest safety approval possible). On top of that, we are also a Volkswagen registered Transporter T6 bodybuilder.

But that doesn't mean that we're going to stop there. We are constantly striving to improve our range and keep up to date with the latest safety standards as well as the very latest technology and equipment. Whether it's investing in our ever-growing team of craftsmen, or acquiring the best and latest equipment, we believe there is always room for us to improve and expand upon our already extensive range of award-winning campervans.
