Im wanting to motorhome
So today I went to my local dealers (Marquis) just having a look around, the strangest thing happened, I wasn't approached by a single salesperson, didn't even see a salesperson. Is this normal??

The one and only time we went to our local Marquis, I'm convinced they took one look at our battered old car, and decided we wouldn't be able to afford anything. They never stepped out of the office! Needless to say we've never been back!

I think they must hide. I wanted to see in a elddis 180. finely found a sales person. but would not come out of office.

I always thought salesmen were paid commission rather than a salary, they must be earning too much if they can afford to ignore potential customers!

In a nutshell, no Ruth but Marquis (De Sade) had a large number of 'sales executives' at the NEC so the chances are the 'A'Team were on leave post NEC . In my opinion you were lucky, but then I am a bitter and twisted former Marquis dupe/ customer/sucker/mark/gullible git/ enter terminology of choice here. :cry:

I have wandered around Marquis Tewkesbury three times now without seeing a salesman once........

Went to their open day on Friday to see the new Benimars they had said would be there. They were not there so it was a wasted journey (we were looking for motorhomes with a garage and they didn't have a single one on show), but we did get one of their goody bags, which was nice. However, apart from a pencil, a pen and a pad, all that was in there was a tax disc holder. This years must have! (not).

We had our Bessie from Marquis at Billing Aquadrome. The MoHos are kept locked for obvious reasons but if you go and find someone they'll open it up for you. As it happened there was a guy in the van we liked the look off replacing a part they'd borrowed from it for a previously 'Sold' van, he actually gave us the keys and told us to lock up when we'd finished ...... it was hemmed in so you couldn't have driven it away but had you had a screwdriver you could have 'borrowed' stuff yourself - or of course caused damage.

You can see why they don't do it.

I'd say to anyone actually genuinely interested in buying a van but a bit stuck for which sort to go to one of the Shows and find where the 'Fun' gang are parked. Instant demo of all sorts of makes and models - no questions about motorhoming classed as 'daft' - if you don't know something then ASK about it !
