    We are thinking of spending Fri/Sat/Sun in the North of England looking for a replacement Motorhome - has anyone any suggestions for Dealers to visit? Thinking of Nottingham on Friday then Yorks/Lancs Saturday/Sunday.

    You could try these 2 in Derby. Easy to get to from Nottingham, then easy to get to M1 for trip to Yorkshire.
    This is not a recommendation, although we have just bought our MH from Motorhomeplus.

    Derby City Centre:

    Loads of choice:

    Best of luck.

    We bought our current van from Camper NE in Birtley, which is a branch of Camper UK near Lincoln. We found the company to be very good both before and after the sale.

    Try Cleveland Motorhomes at Durham Tees Valley Airport

    http://www.clevelandmotorhomes.co.uk/

    I have no idea if they are good dealers or not, I've only had the habitation door repaired by them, they did a good job though. They seem to have a good stock of used MHs in most if not all price brackets.

    We bought ours from Edgehill Motorhomes in Mansfield Woodhouse - a family business that specialises in Hymer (often nearly new imported from Germany). Our buying experience was very good.

    Have you looked at Peter Hambilton's website to see if he has anything that interests you? There are a 'Sales' and 'Private Sales' (i.e. commission-based) sections. Peter is primarily a service and repair specialist and is not open on Fridays or at the weekend - based just south of Preston.

    I would only go to brown hills if you want to buy a damp van

    Why go North if you dont mind me asking?

    You are in Sussex so if I were buying I would stick to the South.

    They are strange up North anyway.:BigGrin:

    Agree with previous posters comments about the two big East Mids dealers.:Angry:

    Edgehill Motorhomes seem very good if you want a LHD Hymer. :thumb:
    However its probably as easy, and probably cheaper to import a LHD Hymer yourself from

    http://www.duerrwang.de/MOTORHOMES.reisemobile.0.html?&L=2

    which is where a lot of Edgehills Motorhomes come from.

    Incidentally we have a December 2009 Rapido 909M for sale should you be interested :Rofl1:

    Cleveland Motorhomes. They are a small family firm and their after sales is superb.

    We send missionaries to Sussex (my solicitor brother for one) :Laughing:
