Team,

A quick update for you.

Nicky and I have had a truly fantastic day today at Premium. We were hosted by the Co-Owner, Michael, for the majority of our two hour visit and I have to say now that he knows his stuff; an incredibly professional and likeable chappy for sure.

I don't wish to overstate things in this post but we went to Doncaster knowing very little and we've come away with a whole load of very useful info including brochures, price lists, build processes, financial info, specs, payloads, accessories, ordering procedures, German factory visits and shows etc.

Nicky has gone a wee bit crazy and is now trying to establish a suitable colour combo between the floors, furniture and the accessories/home furnishings pack while I'm looking at the technical options and the prices!!

It's clear to me now that some Morelo customers take many-many months to configure the correct layout, van size and spec list before they submit an order but, IMO, this is reassuring to us as we can now have a play with the specs and see how things unfold without any time pressures.

That said, this is not a cheap sport or lifestyle choice but for the first time ever I now understand why people buy them. I'm not saying everyone will 'get it' but we do.

It'll now take a few days for Nicky and I to digest the info but I'll revert shortly with some questions if I may.

Regards to all,

Andrew

So pleased that you had a nice day out and came away more educated than confused😏

OK chaps, for those Funsters who say the Morelo sales brochure is easy:

1. We didn't receive a brochure for our first C-Class van purchase but I know from experience that it was about 20-pages long.

2. Our second C-Class van came with a 20-page sales brochure too.

3. The third van (PVC) was 26-pages.

4. The Morelo sales & options list brochure(s) weighs 1.2kg

Enough said :think:

Spoke to the owner of this one in Maroc, he had a Mini Cooper in the garage. He had the faded front and rear black roof panels re-sprayed by a guy who had all his kit in a old battered Peugeot 205. There seems to be lot Morellos over here, must be all that EU money we’ve donated to their coffers.

Team,

I have been using Michael's link for a few days now and I can now report that I've Google Translated just about every in-stock van (from new vans to those being 22-months old) which have a price tag of between €325K and €180K.

It has been an incredibly useful exercise in terms of me getting to grips with the prices and specs of German v English 'in-stock' Morelos.

.......and the conclusion for me is that Germany would be the clear winner should we ever decide to purchase an in-stock model. (There are some fantatsic deals to be had when compared to the UK's 'in-stock' prices).

The pre-order system is slightly different and I'm still waiting on a wee bit more input from other sources to see if a German or UK dealer would be the best POC.

Having said all that, I would clarify the point that Nicky and I would potentially wait a further 6 more months to see what happens to the £-€ exchange rate. I have a sneaking suspicion that the Euro bubble will succumb to such severe external pressures next year that the Morelo vans will become a much more competitively priced option etc.

It's a gamble and I could be wrong but that's also part of the fun.
