Motorhome insolvencies, are not the best topic to discuss. However, buying motorhomes involves a lot of cash. None, are exactly cheap and most are in excess of £30K. So, how do motorhome insolvencies, become reported. Well, like any insolvencies, the bigger they come, the harder they fall. Bad news travels fast! The difficulty in buying a new motorhome, is that usually it is a factory order. Nothing wrong with that, except you pay a deposit to a motorhome dealer! This can be at least 10%. So, paying by credit card, may give some protection. However, many pay for the motorhome via a loan. Therefore, the customer may well have passed that on, with a deposit, over to the motorhome dealer! Make sure you now who you are dealing with!
So, as nagging doubt, now kicks in, you begin to see why. Whilst, a finance company will grab title, to the actual motorhome, when its registered. However, in the interim, you are in no man’s land! Now, dealing with long established, motorhome dealers, is all well and good. But, in this day and age who are we able to rely on? Thankfully, the dangerous motorhome insolvencies, usually revolve around sale and return agreements. That is what happened in Scotland, when an unscrupulous dealer, failed to pay out. Apparently, this involved £800,000 of motorhomes. So, we flag all of this article up, to act as a little warning. In addition, we suggest that people research, who they are dealing with! This takes us on to why talk about it now? Well, we think the UK, may be in a real Brexit mess. We wanted to point a few things out, that may concern potential customers.
