The IH Motorhomes

Story


From Humble Beginnings…

Starting off in 1992, IH Motorhomes has always been the vision of one man, and now, for over two decades, IH has been the name synonymous with prestige and passion in motorhome design.

From Cabinet and Pattern Maker to Motorhome Manufacturer

As a cabinet and pattern marker by trade, Ian Hartley turned his hand to motorhome conversion in 1992. With his first conversion done, he took it to the motorhome show at York Racecourse. Not as an 'official' exhibitor, he just parked in the car park with a 'For Sale' sign on it. This drew the attention of quite a few people who loved the build quality. Before long the show organisers heard about it and Ian was asked to exhibit at the shows. He soon sold the van, and the vast positive comments from passers-by made him think that maybe there was something in this.


Introducing the Fixed Rear Panel

13 years after the first IH Motorhome was sold, IH introduced the fixed rear panel van in 2003. The purpose of this development was to provide a more luxurious, cosy and spacious interior coupled with a useable boot, a welcomed development that is still a favourite layout today with the smaller panel van conversions.

A Settling Location

Starting out at a small lock up in Castleford, IH Motorhomes has developed and grown over the years, undertaking a number of site moves to keep up with the ever growing demand for IH Motorhomes. Finally, in 2005 IH Motorhomes moved to its current location in Knottingley, West Yorkshire, with a dedicated consultation area, NCC Approved Workshop and welcoming environment for all.


N-Class Innovation

In 2013 IH Motorhomes saw a turning point when it introduced the brand-new concept of N-Class motorhomes with a side entrance module, replacing the traditional van sliding door with a traditional ‘motorhome style’ door, and the incorporation of the IH famous rear panel into these compact panel van conversions. Never resting on its laurels, IH Motorhomes introduced the 680 RD in February 2018, built on the new VW Crafter. Proving popular at its first ever appearance, the popularity of VW Crafter base built panel van conversions has only grown over the following years.

IH Motorhomes Today

Many years on from the very first IH Motorhomes, an unpredictable number of these vehicles have been sold and a multitude of accolades have been won, firmly establishing IH Motorhomes within the UK and Europe. Each year IH Motorhomes continues to build on innovation design techniques and impeccable standards. This dedication to transpire has seen the latest models released in October 2019, including the IH 680 CFL built on the popular VW chassis with a famous front lounge, and the two new four travel seat vehicles.


Ian Hartley:

“Our plan has never been to sell as many motorhomes as possible, rather to be proud of the motorhomes we build, every one of them. The luxury motorhome market is a competitive industry and we are proud to be still setting the standard.”
