Just wandering if anyone has any dealings with this company , good or bad . I have not heard of them myself . They are based at Peacehaven , near Brighton and I got chatting to them at the NEC show today. There is one review in the review section but that was a year ago.

We have not done business with them but have visited a few times when looking. The Motorhomes were not presented in the best condition but I presume they valet/fix them when they sell rather than before to save expense. We were looking to PX and they couldn't give us a price as they couldn't see our Van on the internet or Glasses Guide (it was the weekend though but they didn't come back to us in the week and we were suited elsewhere in the end)

I live within spitting distance of this outfit.
My experience has been negative.
I have found them to be scruffy individuals who wander around smoking while working .
I enquired about spare parts a while ago and was more or less told I was wasting their time!
My daughter and son in law purchased a Motorhome from them a few years ago. It had a satellite dish on the roof but SM removed the receiver box to sell separately.
They do sell a lot of Motorhomes but I drive past them to Premier Motorhomes in Birdham, Nr Chichester. Great company! (y)

We went there when we wanted to part X our van gave is a shameful amount part X price. Same thoughts about scruffy vans on show. Put you right off them on first inspection.
First impressions and all that. Salesmen sitting around as you say. Surely they could clean the vans instead of doing that to make them more sellable?
Well I would if I was the director.

When we were looking we had just missed an autotrail scout and found one on their website. Drove down to view it. At the time it was priced at £24000.
I would not have given them £4000. Filthy condition, broken cupboards and rusted wheel arches . Decided then and there that first impressions count.

The Robin reliant is nearby lol many many moons ago I went there for a job.Back then it wasbigger and very impressive. Recently it looks terrible vans are not prepared at all I would imagine they have the vans the big dealers don't want. As said Premiere are worth a look as also Southdown's

You have to wonder what sort of manufacturers would want to use them as main agents if their premises and second hand stock look tired. Which manufacturers do they represent?

Went to look at a their stock - wanting a bigger mh than the fiat 2 berth (which weve still got......:whistle:) they had a Hymer in the yard across the road (the cheaper not so clean stock), the guy did come over and unlock it for us to look at,...........then disappeared ? had to find him again to ask price...........HOW MUCH ???? it was filthy, tatty and smelt damp !!

We left it open and walked away.

There is another Hm dealer just across the road from sm, AMC (I think) much better service, the guy there, even knowing his vehicles were out of our price range, was quite happy to discuss various points of interest etc.

As far as I know AMC sell vehicles on behalf of private individuals and take a payment which covers Valeting and Servicing so they tend to clean the stock before it is on the forecourt.

Hi Calion - You might not see this if you are ignoring me - but don't worry I am used to it - Mrs Colpot has been doing it for years....
