    My priority on any future m/ home will be payload.It may save an awful lot of unnecessary stress that we have currently experienced..

  2. Alan Humphries says:

    We bought a new Unicorn Barcelona last May 12 and 2minor problems sorted by our local dealer (Dinmore) no problems just had it serviced was even washed when I collected it, this is what one does expect from a good dealer.

    honesty and integrity. sadly lacking once customer has paid good money for numerous bad workmanship from factory. swift admitted to knowing new vehicle left factory with faults. expects agent to fix. still supplying new vehicles with same faults three years later. still enjoying motor home open road experience with different manufacturer.

  4. Terry says:

    Having a number of motorhomes before we now look for a large van with a queen bed and plenty of space there is only 2 of us but when away for longer periods you will be surprised how easier it becomes we currently have a 29ft 6 wheeler

    I look for good quality fixtures, the amount storage,layout of bathroom, ease of access to controls. work top space/layout. I would also consider towing costs. My 15 year old son is too long for the bunk beds to accommodate this point I wish someone would manufacture an awning with a dedicated internal 2 berth bedroom at one end.

  6. P Garratt says:

    A dealer who helps you resolve warranty issues after they have sold you the caravan. A dealer who is capable of servicing the van without creating more problems.
    The two closest dealers I have dealt with remind me of the bad old days of the car dealers many many years ago.

  7. John says:

    How about 1-layout

  8. Phil H says:

    Weight was the most important factor for us when choosing our new van. We found out what the car could safely tow and then looked around those models we liked the look of.

  9. Rob Dearden says:

    Layout, interior & exterior modern design, storage space, wide range of domestic appliances, security. Many new caravan designs are totally ruined by garish horrible in your face interior upholstery – more choice & options should be available. That’s it!

  10. Ian Sherwood says:

    I look for the layout I need, quality and reputation of manufacturer and the best spec model I can afford.

  11. Eric says:

    I look for the best build quality that I can afford and try to find out as much as I can beforehand
