Little bit about The Expert Camper
I have been camping for over 20 years. I’ve also worked in outdoor retail for 5 years and since 2009, I’ve been running my own camping-related websites.
It’s just something I love to do. Camping is good for your health, after all!
I decided to launch The Expert Camper in April 2020. Some might say it was, the worst time to launch a new site, especially when camping in the UK was currently banned to the masses. But this is a site I wanted to launch for a while and so I decided during lockdown to go for it.
Initially, this site will is being run by myself, Andy, and my wife Louise. We are a camping-mad family and can often be found spending our leisure time on campsites. We know our stuff, and all items for sale on this site will be items we’re happy to recommend.
Unlike many other retailers, we won’t be having sales or offering discounts. This may surprise you but for a business like ours, we don’t feel that this is necessary. That is because we aim to offer you the very best prices all year round.
We don’t feel the season should make a difference to how much you pay for your camping gear!
That said, to help create space in our warehouse, and bring in new products, we’ll have two key promotion days each year where we will offer big savings on surplus stock.
These will be:
11th March and the 11th October.
You might want to put those dates in your diary, as stock will be sure to sell quickly.
One other big difference
We are working closely with campsites up and down the country and will offer you delivery directly to your site.
While the range initially is pretty limited for this service, this is done deliberately to make sure you can get the essentials when you really need them.
If I wouldn’t use a product, it won’t be appearing on this site.
Our promise to you is that we will sell you the best quality products at the best prices.
If you’re new to camping and not sure what to buy, head over to our blog where we share some of our expert advice on the essentials – and the luxuries – you might want to consider. Whether that’s a guide to the best types of pegs for different grounds, or tips on how to waterproof your tent, if it’s camping-related we have you covered.
You can rest assured that if we stock it – it passes our internal tests. And, as I said, we know our stuff – so poor-quality products won’t be featured.
