    We know a few people who have bought from them and we've not heard a bad word about them.

    Not used them for our Motorhome but when we had a Burstner caravan we had it served there as it was under warrenty and we found them to be very knowledgeable and efficient with their servicing and great customer service.

    Better aftercare then a lot of other dealers, staff personally go out to Germany to see the manufacturers ie Burstner.

    Hope that helps.

    One of the facts members had trouble with a new burstner. They gave her a loan one whilst trying to get it fixed and then replaced it with a new one when it couldnt be sorted.

    I have only ever heard good things about them going above and beyond a lot of dealers.

    As you can see Peter from Johns Cross has given them a heads up.

    What you looking at buying then Bill.

    No, not buying, just looking for reliable servicing. Not cheap, just reliable & conscientious & honest in Lincoln area.

    We did a tour of around a dozen dealers when we were looking for our new van last year and Camper UK Lincoln were very good.We would have bought from them without hesitation if they had had the van we wanted. Hope this helps.:thumb:

    I have twice been to them for parts from them in the last three months.

    Very good service, first time they kept part till I could get up from W Sussex ( vent covers)

    Second time they went through in detail a problem that i had with fiting a new lock into a water filler cap.

    Told me I did not need new part and how to get lock taken out and replaced if I need one in the future.

    Very good service for me!

    Hi

    Nothing but praise for Camper UK. We bought our Burstner from them two years ago, and have had it serviced, and snags fixed.

    We have found them to be honest, conscientious and reliable. They have even helped out with advice via email when we were in Portugal.

    One leisure battery failed last summer, both were two years old, and they replaced both without a quibble. They even uprated it to 90ah from 75 without charge.

    I would buy from them again, even though we are in Devon and they are in Lincoln.

    Hope this helps.

    I purchased a new Bessacarr from them in 2010 had a great deal
    Then had the first service done and warranty work all first class
    very friendly family firm, a further warranty job was required and as I live a good distance away they got the parts needed and paid a local dealer near to me to do the job. No question as to the needs of their customers.
    Excellent Company:Smile::Smile::Smile:

    Hi all, if you have been a customer of camper UK please do leave a review here

    The Dealer Review Section will be an awsome resource if we regularly review our contact with the dealers. :thumb:

    Camper UK - EXCELLENT

    Well, I took the advice of most funsters who responded to my request for feedback on Camper UK in Lincoln and booked it in for MOT, Premium Service & Habitation.

    I was not disappointed. I gave them plenty of notice & a 'must pick-up time'. Reception was excellent & a technician came to the van and carefully noted all of the extra jobs I wanted doing. They started work STRAIGHTAWAY - please note SMC of Newark!.:Sad:

    I know this because they rang several times & kept me informed of progress & price implications for work that needed doing.:BigGrin:

    The work was completed on time & although they have a price list for servicing, they only charged for actual work done & time taken.:thumb:

    The van passed its MOT & now seems to run even better than before.

    I cannot rate or recommend Camper UK highly enough. Polite, helpful, professional, efficient & value for money. Well done.:thanks2:

    Billkce

    (PS, I would review this formally on the site - if I could only work out how to do it!!!)

    We were new to motorhoming when we bought our new Burstner Aviano 2 years ago.Since then we have had one warranty problem and 2 habitation checks and services.

    We have been extremely satisfied and would not hesitate to recommend them.
    Very friendly staff.
