10th year of ownership

OBI Camping was established in Wales over 45 years ago to sell OBI Branded Tents and later Caravan Awnings and Trailer tents. OBI being a Danish Manufacturer

The OBI brand originated in the city of Odense in Denmark (The O in OBI). The 'B' stands for Bomuldes (Cotton in Danish) and the 'I' Industries or Company

The original founder of OBI Camping being related to the Directors of the OBI company in Denmark. 

Starting off selling in the Garden of his house in Rhoose (home of Cardiff Wales Airport) the Business soon expanded moving to Birds Garden Centre in Cowbridge, now the site of Waitrose in Cowbridge. Within a year OBI Camping needed bigger premises and moved to 5 Westgate in Cowbridge, where it remained for many years.

We bought the Business in 2007 making this our 10th Anniversary year. We also moved the Business from the Westgate site in Cowbridge into our current modern unit on Vale Business Park, Llandow 2 years ago re-opening in the last week of June. So this is a double celebration for us.

Lots has changed over the years and we have survived by specialising and using the experience we have in the Camping, Caravanning & Motorhome industry as well as our personal experience of using the products.

Motorhome or Camper-van driveaway or freestanding awnings have become our biggest success with a dedicated website offering helpful advise on choosing and fixing a driveaway awning. www.driveaway-awnings.co.uk.

We also stock a large range of caravan awning including the latest Air Awnings, as well as all the accessories you need.

So come along and visit us in-store or online and helps us celebrate this double milestone weekend.
