I'm a newbie
Hi all,
I am a newbie to motorhomes and I am about to purchase my first one ,
I like the layout , the look , and the price of the Tribute 720 , I also like the Auto-trail Impala 720 which is almost identical ( to me ) but £4k dearer ,
I would appreciate any information about them both and their build quality , does anyone own either ? With the Tribute being £4k cheaper will it fall apart around me ? I do prefer the white cab of the tribute ( and the £4k in my pocket ), any help or advice would be greatly appreciated ,
I need to let the dealer know soon of my choice in order to secure a delivery for March .

They are both made by Autotrail in the same factory, wit many of the basic parts being the same. The difference is in the 'extras' and the trim levels.

This may be a bit controversial , but have a look at some Autotrail posts & comments.
It seems that they are not one of the better companies out there.
I have a 2000 model and like it, but after what I have read I would not throw thousands at a modern one.
Not just my opinion, have a look:xThumb:

I was in a similar position last year at the NEC.I was really impressed with the Tribute range and couldn't see where in the Autotrail badged vehicles,the extra £5000 pound went.I went for the Tribute and am glad I dif.I have added a few extras myself and have still not spent the extra thousands.

Hi. We have got a Tracker EKS 2014. The Impala EKS is the same vehicle, but quite a bit bit more 'spartan'. But a lot less money, so the choice is very personal.
Reference the Autotrail build quality etc, we have been delighted with ours.. Any problems have been dealt with without a quible.. The company itself are supposed to be a "pain" to deal with.. But that is your dealers job !! So, make sure the dealer you buy from is a good one !! They are the MOST critical factor when buying the van !! (( In my opinion.. )) And we have an excellent dealer in Simpsons at Great Yarmouth..
Good luck with your purchase..
PS.. Just make sure that the "layout" is definitely "right" for you, its also a critical factor..
Mitch. :xThumb:
