Hi to all of you with a continental motorhome, check your base vehicle warranty. Our Motorhome is a Rapido built on a Mercedes chassis. It is right hand drive and was purchased new from a Rapido dealer. It was first registered in the UK, to us. Being two years old it had it's first service at a Mercedes Benz Commercial dealer the other week. When it came to doing the paper work the Dealer could not find our vehicle on the Mercedes Benz UK database. In the end the Dealer had to set the vehicle details up manually. This week I had a courtesy call from the Dealer. They could not find our vehicle on the Mercedes Benz UK database as technically it was not a UK vehicle, it was missing two digits on the Mercedes Benz vehicle identifying code. What Mercedes Benz believe is, Rapido purchased a right hand drive Mercedes Benz chassis direct from Mercedes Benz. In Mercedes Benz eyes this is then a European vehicle as it was purchased in Europe. Rapido, then, exported the completed motorhome to the UK. As the Motorhome was imported direct in to the UK it did not go through Mercedes Benz UK, and is therefore is a European purchased Mercedes Benz (although it is not an import for tax, insurance, etc. purposes). The bottom line to all of this, European Mercedes Benz's have two years warranty and UK Mercedes Benz's have three years warranty. You might want to check your base vehicle warranty, it might effect Fiat and the others, as well as Mercedes Benz.
