    We have our servicing done by them at Chichester and they are excellent and very efficient don't know about Dethleffs only that they look a nice van.

    My son bought a Dethleffs Low profile 2012 model,last year to tow my grandson's grass track racing car to events around the country - he has been very impressed with the build quality and overall design.

    We have a 2005 Dethleffs Esprit and having looked at the brand new ones at the NEC this year - yes we would buy another one.

    They went with the intention of buying an Autotrail, and nearly signed at the show after talking to the salesman, but decided to look at a few others. While wandering about they had a chat to a guy selling sat's, he strongly recommended Dethleffs, and after comparing the two, she said the quality difference was obvious.
    They are having the upgraded engine and Autobox. Delivery springtime I believe.

    Good company I've had warranty work done there but I wouldn't pay UK prices for a German van.

    We have a 2016 Dethleffs Esprit, very happy after 10000 Kms. Though ours was bought in France...

    Don't take deliveries as gospel, ours arrived 6 to 8 wks. late.....

    As they are only 3 mile up the road from us we often pop in for a look around.
    Have to say we were very impressed with the Esprit.
    Maybe one day :RollEyes::RollEyes:
