Are Used Motorhomes Good Value?
We think that Used Motorhomes are Good Value. What do you think?
Typically, when you’ve seen a used motorhome for sale you may not be aware that the previous owner, whether they bought it new or nearly-new will have bought all manner of accessories for it; awning, satellite TV, air conditioning, solar power, and so on. Many motorhome owners who then sell or part exchange will often include these items to sweeten the deal, so to speak. The items may not fit the new vehicle so that means that you, when you googled for ‘used motorhomes for sale’, are already poised to take advantage of that fact; and so you should.
You need plenty of choices!
Oaktree Motorhomes specialises in providing a huge range of used or nearly-new motorhomes for sale. You’ll find vehicles the highest quality, unlocked and open for you to browse at your leisure and we’ll be on-hand to help you make practical comparisons between manufacturers and models so that you get the best fit to your criteria. Don’t forget that many used motorhomes will come with many accessories so you won’t need to buy them.
However, if you’ve previously been reluctant to consider buying a used motorhome then the story may look a lot like this:
Buying a New Motorhome is Just Pure Hassle
You’ve done your research and you’ve identified all the criteria for your ideal day and night-time layouts. Wonderful. You’ve decided on a couple of makes and models that fit your criteria so the next step is to spend several days or weekends travelling around to multiple dealers to see the various vehicles. You can even customise the vehicle to your choice. If that’s important to you then great.
Of course, you’ve assumed that once you’ve bought your new motorhome then, Bob’s your uncle and off you jolly well go. Hold on a second though – The idyllic world you’re thinking of actually doesn’t exist for new vehicles. Let me explain…
Buying a new motorhome comes with a built-in financial burden in terms of paying 20% VAT on your motorhome. The depreciation from new is atrocious too. Not so with a used model. There is a small amount of VAT to pay but it’s a small fraction. Even before you set off on your idyllic lifestyle. It’s enough to take the wind out of your sails…
With a new vehicle, straight out of the factory you will find that there will be a list of issues that crop-up to be dealt with under warranty (an unanswered question is: why not catch and fix them before they leave the factory?). Well, it seems some Motorhomes are often built to a time deadline, not to a level of quality. That means, irrespective of the money you paid for your new motorhome, you’ll have the hassle of going back to the dealer to get your list of problems sorted, big or small. If you start having problems with the dealer then it can be a nightmare. Remember, even a brand new motorhome costing £70k can have a damp problem.
Continental or British Motorhomes?
We’ll leave that to you to decide!
Offering you the ideal layout
Alternatively, if Oaktree Motorhomes could offer you the ideal vehicle and layout you need with some or all the accessories thrown in at a price that would save you thousands or possibly tens of thousands of pounds, wouldn’t that enable you to spend the huge amount of money saved on your travels and adventures instead?
We service your vehicle to our own rigorous standards and then guarantee it with a 3 year RAC warranty. TOTALLY FREE OF CHARGE. That’s true peace of mind, with knobs on! Damp? you must be joking! We take our 5-star customer service commitment to you seriously.
