Hi all,
After going to the NEC to view some PVC’s and deciding to downsize from our Bailey 79-6 we have just ordered a Pilote 650GJ!
I would of preferd a PVC but my wife liked the internal size and given it’s only 6.5m and 2.3 m in width it suited both of our needs.
We collect in 2 weeks from SMC Newark and had a few extras fitted but it is well equipped with the driver pack, comfort pack, extra lounge bed etc. We were also looking at an autotrail EPK but it just didn’t float my boat and lacked storage.
Any tips or what to look out for on collection would be most welcome.
Darren

That's a fantatsic choice Darren.

The 650GJ high bed mod has to be one of the most versatile motorhomes on the market.

Until recently we had the P740GJ Sensation but only swapped it for a Globecar PVC because we wanted something narrower for the Scottish roads or else we would have kept it.

We've used SMC for our last two new vans and the handover guy must be the best in the business.

Do a thorough check and if you find a problem at the handover then he'll be off to kick someone's arse and to have it rectified.

Enjoy your new van - much better than a Watertrail in every way possible.

Collecting our 700gj from Dicksons of Perth on 4th March. Ordered in July after seeing the 2018 model, due to build time ours will be the 2019 model. Obvious differences are - reversing cameras now incorporated into radio "screen" which looks much neater, new "pull up" screen blinds which are very neat, new screen panel showing water, battery levels etc. We went for the Essential model and upgraded with Pilote "packs" .

After 2 years of looking and researching we felt this would be a perfect van and layout for us.

Hope you enjoy your 650gj :D

Wow! 8 months wait! I bet your chomping at the bit? The sales man did say that Pilote have exhausted there allocation for this year, I also had the essential model but has all the extra packs on, also added an awning, external gas point and aerial.
Looks like they are practically the same with yours showing a little more length.

In fairness the new Pilote arrived in December but a prolonged spell in hospital meant I was unable to collect. Dicksons kindly agreed we could delay collection until March for the new reg. They have swapped our Oyster system and tv over free of charge. Dicksons of Perth have been great to deal with.

Have fun with your new wheels - we shall !

Clive.
