    Hi, we have visited JC Leisure as they are close to us, we looked at a few secondhand motorhomes, we didn't buy from them as they were not interested in part exxing against our old one as they said the mileage was too high for them. Must admit though, staff were friendly and informative and never pushy. In the end I bought another motorhome privately and sold my old one through ebay. Think they are a reputable company but obviously after sales service is also important.
    Best of luck, and enjoy.
    Regards Luke

    Why would you pay up front ???

    Considering that it's a cash sale.
    Pay a deposit.. I paid £2k on one that had a retail of £53k..
    Put the funds in your bank on the day / day before and then use Debit card AFTER you have checked the van and happy to accept it....
    You may have to go through a security check on the phone but not always..

    When I bought my van I paid about £400 deposit and the rest on pickup. I would offer £500 at most for deposit with the full understanding that if it is not as advertised you get your money back.

    If you agree and pay a deposit over the telephone you are fully protected under the Consumer Rights Act 2015.(Which incorporated the Distance Selling Act) and came into force last October. You drive down from yorkshire and if you are not happy with the van you are entitled to have your deposit back. Do not make the mistake of signing anything on arrival at the site then checking the vehicle. As soon as you sign an agreement on site you have agreed to a contract. Have a read through the Act and there are lots of articles on the Web outlining your protection.

    Always pay a deposit on a credit card as it's not your money and you have more rights /clout,

    Could you not find a Tribute dealer closer to home
    Can't imagine you're going to want to travel to the south every year for service or warranty work

    Just a reminder, you have no credit card protection if the full price of the item your buying is over £30,000, regardless of how much the deposit is.
