    Devastated - heard from TravelWorld they have 'cocked up' and the motorhome I have been looking forward to picking up on the 3rd March has the wrong transmission - Manual instead of Automatic
    I am gutted - 10 days before we are due to collect - insurance paid - back bedroom full of new stuff - hire car bk'd - campsites bk'd
    alarm and 'Gaslow' from Vanbitz bk'd in for fitting - holidays with grandchildren - motorhome clubs joined !! heart broken
    Sat drinking NZ Marlborough White Wine drowning my sorrow - unable to get us one now until August 2016

    So if anyone looking for a new Hymer T class 554CL with fixed bed - many extras - get in touch with TravelWorld

    What a nightmare! Total refund would be my choice and pay your money elsewhere. Import is not a bad idea and you will save money. Homework to be done when you sober up and have killed the salesman. (y)

    @lamyj try and find one from another dealer. Some have specced up models on their forecourts as part of their annual lot of new stock and a deal could possibly be done.
    Our new B544 was part of Becks new 2016 stock, I only had to wait two weeks while they fitted my extras.

    Ours included auto and 150hp + other upgrades.

    Don't know how you guys buy new motorhomes months in advance, I just couldn't do it , if I can't buy it today and drive off in it tomorrow , just not interested, apart from anything else if you have waited 6 months , by the time you get on the road , it's last years model, even if you get it when they say.

    Sorry to hear that. My son got told one Friday afternoon the administrators were being called in on the Monday and the last day at work would be the following Friday. He's in a far better job now but it could have been lot worse. Hope it all works out for you.
