    Thanks for your help. Reading other comments there seems to be a problem with the cracking and insulation over the cab. Shame Marquis are the only dealer but will go this weekend to have a look at the durham dealership.

    Saw loads of unregistered new ones being driven off the Brittany ferry from Spain at Portsmouth, so must be popular.........

    Had a look at the 201, I thought Marquis were taking the piss though with my trade in van as they wanted me to sign for the 201 without giving me an agreed trade in price. The 201 is really nice and I thought well made, but the table was far too large for the Van and the shower curtain a complete waste of time and weight! The coach work I particularly liked and the solid construction of the plastic shell.

    We have just ordered a Mileo 201 from Marquis Sussex, got a good trade in price from Marquis on our Rollerteam without seeing the van, when we bought it in so they could check it over they agreed to the price offered, no trying to knock us back.
    Got a good discount on the new 201 plus Fiamma awning and privacy tent included.
    So far the service has been faultless, Rob the salesman phoned us with the new registrations so we could chose which one we wanted and also said that when it is in we can call in to look at it, he knows how excited we are.
    The spec and layout suits our needs, if we all wanted the same layout there would be only one design, glad we are different
    Good solid construction GRP and 95% wood free and Grade 111 Insulation.
    The 2016 models have the new Fiat 150bhp engine.
    The 201 won the Compact Motor home for 2015 so that cant be bad.
    They are doing final valeting on the 1st April and we pick it up on the Saturday.
    So far so good, will keep you updated hopefully with good news.
    We will be at the Peterborough show on the Motorhome Fun pitch so happy to show off our new pride and joy.
    John & Liz
