Hello everyone, we have just test driven a 2022 Elddis Majestic 120 which we feel meets all our requirements re layout, size and ease to drive however it was rather noisy when driving just on a duel carriageway. The grillpan, oven shelves etc were not in situ and I tried to muffle the hob lid. We have hired different motorhomes before for trips but think this one rattled more. Is this to be expected? we are new to your forum and already gleaned lots of useful info so thank you. Any suggestions and opinions would be welcomed. Thank you

They all rattle. Some more so than others.
A lot of the rattles can be eliminated, but not all.
Having owned two Elddis motorhomes, I would say that they do tend to rattle a lot.

I should have said - the first Elddis motorhome we owned was a 120.
Apart from the rattles :giggle: it actually was a great van. Much better than Elddis 155 which replaced it.
The only reason we replaced the 120 was to have a fixed bed.
Storage space was also a bit limited as the bedding had to be packed away which took up a lot of space.

We had a 115 for 7 years and it was noisy, especially going over speed humps.
Wrap the oven shelves in a tea towel and put a sponge or cloth u Derby one corner of the hob cover and that makes a difference.
good news is that after a few trips out you will not notice it as much

Just our grill used to rattle. I suppose that's more of a thetford issue than Elddis. Anyway Ann wedged the kitchen roll in it to stop it.

There’s hardly a motorhome that doesn’t rattle somewhere.
Its a matter of tracking each rattle down and using some foam or matting to quieten it down.
All our pans etc have felt/ or non slip matting in between.
Good luck with your purchase.

My first van was a Marquis(Elddis) Majedstic 125 - fixed transverse bed. No van is rattle free but we did notice our current Carthago A Class noticeably quieter upon driving it home after the trade-in. Just turn the radio up.

After experiencing the build quality of a new Elddis caravan I would never consider buying an Elddis again.

They all rattle some more than others. Get yourself a pile of tea towels and socks for wrapping thins up with.

Maybe it’s because we don’t have an oven or a grill but our Globecar has never rattled unless we haven’t shut the hob or sink lids properly. Perhaps PVC,s are just quieter? Apart from the whoosh bang obviously!

We have a 115. Rattles like a bugger... Loads of dish cloths and plate anti-rattle stuff (looks like underlay) and it cuts most down...
