Just been reading the story on MHFun and it appears that the manager was James, son of Vanbitz owner Eddie, and he intends to start his own business nearby. Good luck to him.
Johnscross wasn't in any financial trouble, it was just the widows decision to close.

Hi Paul, A real shame and surprise to hear of the closure of John's Cross M/H and Camping Centre, I have bought and sold leisure vehicles there for over 25yrs, On a nice site, always had a well presented stock of M/H's, a well stocked shop, plus large stock of Fiamma parts with helpful and knowledgeable staff, It had been virtually closed for months due to Covid restrictions apart from  mail order Regards

Hi Paul, Sad news. Would need to very aware if bidding especially for M/H's, sold as seen with zero warranty with a 16% buyers premium plus 5% VAT. Regards

I bought my first van from Johns Cross some 15 years ago. I'd travelled to look at a van being sold by another dealer on the South Coast, and was disappointed to find that it was a total shed!

Called in at Johns Cross on the way back home just by chance, and there was exactly the vehicle that was right for me. Excellent company to deal with and sorry to hear they have gone.
