Comparing Motorhome Hi there everyone

Wow, it is now a few months on, from the article below, having been published “comparing motorhomes”. It was in March at the beginning of the 2019 season. The McLouis Fusion dealers were gearing up to do the motorhome shows and launch the 5 McLouis Fusion models. Comparing motorhomes is never an easy job and only reflects, what we do. We like to see how promotions, are working and what the customers think. Having been totally engulfed with Brexit motorhomes, it has made a difference. Clearly, there has been a cost, many customers are still sitting out making a decision. The waiting game for some goes on.

Because, we have to consider, how our European motorhome manufacturers are doing. The whole motorhome marketing thing, has revolved around “value for money,” no surprises there then? However, our main point is, all about the longer term. Just what will any motorhome be worth in the future? The pound fluctuating, has by no means finished. Brexit is seeing to that! So, we see that this is about the longer term. Customers, are entitled to ask the question “what is my motorhome going to be worth in 2/3 years time? Just how many are able to answer that question? There lies a lot of guesswork.

The Cost of Discounting Motorhomes

If a motorhome is being heavily discounted, it has to reflect on what it is worth today. Six grand off list price actually may mean another potential £1,200 vat saving. So, that is a discount and vat saving, a whopping £7,200! On an average of £54,000 list price, that means £46,800 drive away price. Now, just what is that motorhome worth for cash, when registered. Ask a buyer like at “we buy any motorhomes”? You could be in for a reality check. There has to be a point of valuation, that reflects the discounted price.

However, the savvy motorhome buyer, knows, just what that family holiday is costing these days? Average, two weeks holiday, of mum and dad, two children and granny? £5,000, £6,000? The flights, the hotel bills, the hire cars, the restaurant bills, they all add up! That motorhome holiday, assuming you buy a motorhome, is going to be available for more that two weeks! So, you may be in for an initial loss, if you sell your motorhome early. However, it will all pale into insignificance, when you are on that second motorhome holiday. Not to mention all those weekends away. With no flights to catch or hotel bills. Now, the value of motorhome ownership, really does begin to pay you back! No wonder, people are waking up. Conventional holiday v motorhome holiday? It really begins to be a no brainer! McLouis Fusion v Benimar Mileo? The choice is all yours!

Comparing Motorhomes

OK, let us go comparing motorhomes, what shall we compare, you may well ask? Well, let’s look at value for money and specifications, for a starter for 10! Now, we could look at the many different values, on van conversions and other coach built motorhomes. However, here we are going to focus, on those fixed bed motorhomes. Asking the question, why do people, like fixed bed motorhomes? The fact is, no one wants to make up a bed at bedtime. So, we ask, is that what is making the McLouis Fusion, to be so successful? The fact is, that all five McLouis Fusion models have the fixed bed layout! Are we all lazy? Surely not! Not wanting, to be messing about. Just consider, what comparing motorhomes, is all about. Just selecting motorhome reviews and trying to compare, is a starting point. But, just what do we compare the “McLouis Fusion” with? There are similar Roller Team or Swift drop down bed examples. However, let us, look at a little “Spanish” number for starters. The “Benimar Mileo” 2019 range.

Now, lets just look at what maybe, is helping the McLouis Fusion, to get that edge, on the competition. Now, the Trigano Group connection, is bound to have some influences. Both, in specification and technical issues. All, that being said, just let us take a quick look at some key features, on the McLouis Fusions. How about, all being four berths, with end garages? Now, don’t miss the fact, that four out of the five, in the range, have five travelling seats, with seat belts. We certainly know what makes a difference, in that style and feel of Italian motorhomes. However, we could just count on the key three features. The ones that keep the customers coming to buy a McLouis Fusion. With the much liked fixed bed layout, an end garage and ample travelling seats, all good, for our starter for ten! Guess what the Benimar Mileo has similar key points! OK, let us look at it another way, Italian or Spanish compare the cultures! Should be fun!

Comparing Motorhomes Just Like Spain v Italy

In some ways, when you like the looks of a motorhome layout, that may make a difference. But, does that affect the customers final choice? So, no matter how you look at it. This is Italy v Spain. In our opinion; It is a bit like comparing, a cheap package holiday, on the Spanish Costa Brava. As opposed to an Italian lake, high-class holiday. The food and accommodation, are always going to be part of the holiday selection. As with on motorhomes, the kitchen, cooking and the bed space, all have to be considered. Not forgetting, the weather! That is something you could not really compare! But, let’s not go there! We could go on; Spain is almost two times bigger than Italy! But, when you compare, Benimar to McLouis, it is like for like comparing? The Italy v Spain thing, all over again, it is a bit like comparing;

  1. Juventus to Real Madrid
  2. Buffon to de Gea
  3. Seat to Fiat
  4. Sangria to Limoncello
  5. Rome to Madrid
  6. Sicily to Corsica
  7. Pasta to Tortilla
  8. Valentino to Zara
  9. Pavarotti to Julio Iglesias

Comparing Motorhomes Residual Values

So, let’s not go on, with all this, has it got that, does it have this business. Let’s cut to the chase and think about residual values. How do we get a good price for our second hand McLouis or Benimar motorhome? Well, this is going to come down to a number of things. Supply and demand. What was the price when brand new? How many are for sale? Is it a genuine imported motorhome. Some people, just wait for the new ones to filter through second hand. That way the VAT issues have disappeared a little in some ways. The motorhome dealers, have to pay the vat over, 20%. This is a whopping amount! So, that has to reflect a little in any second hand value. Now, if we have an oversupply situation, then that has to put pressure, on the long term residual value. These are things, that people, don’t take fully into full consideration when comparing motorhomes.

They are brought it into the UK by Marquis, who are part of the Trigano Group. Many similar features, provides a comparison on some things. However, the residual value, is going to be tested, as the sales increase.

Comparing Motorhomes Three P’s

Have we really made, a like for like comparison? Well, not in fine detail, we will leave that one job to you! What we hoped to have achieved, is highlighting, two very desirable motorhome brands. The specifications and prices are always going to be similar. But, some additional specification, may make a difference. Now, all you have to do is pick out, the one that you really like. In the end, you are the customer and it is your choice! What is our opinion? Well, it is like the day at the office, would you like to go home in a Ferrari or a Seat? Well, all that being said, it comes down to horses for courses? The most important thing is to remember, that one person’s meat is another person’s poison. We cannot, all be the same. Especially, in choosing, what we like. There will always be a compromise, somewhere to be made. However, comparing may help in the final choice. This is not just about two motorhomes. This is about, the three P’s, passion, pride and perfection. So, for now, it is; Adiós, Arrivederci – Goodbye!
