    Can anyone share with me positives or dare I say any negatives (keep it clean!) about their own experience of the various Hymer Dealers that are current?

    in no particular order,

    Kimberley in Darlington
    Lowdhams
    Travelworld
    Becks Norfolk
    Premier Chichester

    I prefer local but best of all I'd prefer the best ;)

    Cheers, Ruth

    Our Hymer was supplied by Premier Motorhomes and Leisure near Chichester.

    They gave us a fantastic deal when we traded in our Bessacarr and I cannot fault their service in any way.

    Whenever I have contact with them I always feel like a friend rather than a customer.

    Yeah, I know they're a long way from you but they're also a long way from where we live.

    Stef.

    Hi Ruth, can't fault Becks, so pleased with the deal and after sales service, I'm sure our next van will also come from them.

    Found Lowdens a little more 'cutthroat' not sure I'd be happy dealing with their service department.

    Travelworld have also had some great after sales comments on here.

    The only issue with Becks for you, may be travelling distance.

    I bought my hymer new from kimberley Darlington last sept traded my old one in I was very pleased with the hand over and the motorhome itself only downside is I live in leicester and it was a long trip they provided me with overnight stay in there car park and a free breakfast in the morning I would use them again if the deal was as good as the one on my new van

    Becks .. bought our Hymer B644 from them..

    top notch family firm.. in business for over 40 years.. highly recommend them..
    no pressure from sales person,,we were left to look as long as we liked.. then offered a test drive.. no pressure .. we negotiated a good deal. very happy customers.

    On the pick up day they sent a car to pick us up .. 140ml round trip for them

    since buying had two parts replaced, no quibble.. the door step switch and a driving light both quite expensive.. I fitted myself to safe the journey.

    I seldom trust garages or dealers.. but wouldn't hesitate in having them do the annual service.

    They have there own fully equipped mechanical workshops..

    The warranty is with them.. not a third party insurer..

    Buy with confidence from Becks (y)

    We bought our Hymer from Edgehill Motorhomes in Mansfield. They're a family run business and we found them great. We were first time buyers of a motorhome, but we'd done our research and knew what we were looking for. They had one that kept drawing our eye as it ticked all the boxes, but as ever was just over our budget. We decided to look, we bought and 4 years later, we still own the same van. I can recommend them.

    I think there are dealers which are good for some people and there are dealers who are not so good in my opion it is down to your own buying experience and the service you receive It is the motorhome you must be happy with and if there are any problems In the future please make sure the manufacturer has a good warrenty network of dealers

    We have dealt with Travelwold for the last 2/3yrs. Cannot fault them. Annabel & the team have always had our interests at heart. Nothing to much trouble for them. Plus, it's free tea/coffee, just help yourself.

    Premier Chichester are good for service, but we always buy from Campirama in Belgium. Why spend an extra £10 - £20k at a UK dealer.

    i think edgehill can get new models but they get them from Germany bought ours from them 754 and the spec was amazing for a 2002 van good after sales as well. lowdams supplied our new hymer caravan before the motorhome
    and their aftersales was amazing after the shower screen was broken

    We bought from Travelworld - they have a large stock of top of the range MHs.

    What model are you looking for Ruth?
