The Beast From the East
Did the Beast from the East affected you? You may well soon find out. Who put spring on hold, I hear you say? Yes, it was cold and still raining here today, just for good measure. Also, the Beast from the East, followed up with his pal mini Beast. So, were we all to busy keeping warm to notice the effect? Also, its now April and the motorhome season maybe a little delayed!
This all has had implications of the supply of motorhomes. How has that worked out, you may well ask? The timing of March the 1st is a key date for new motorhomes, to arrive for delivery (due to the new number plate). Therefore, the Beast of the East timed his visit for delivery as well! In time for kick off of the season and therefore to be slightly postponed!
Also, knock on effects, with some workers not getting to work. Also, things like delayed deliveries, of parts and of new motorhomes to dealers. Even petrol stations running out of LPG gas! Something, as at today’s date, has not been fully resolved!

Good News and Bad News.
First the bad news, the motorhome manufacturers may, have had real supply just in time situations, being delayed. Without parts and things for assembling the motorhome delays do and did happen. There was a knock-on effect, it may mean about a four-week window of disruption. That may well turn into to further disruption on actual supply of a new motorhome.
Many motorhome manufacturers were affected. But this is not the end of the world or is it? You may have booked to go away in your new motorhome. Ferry tickets and missing the boat so to speak. Or things have added to the Beasts visit, having to use your existing motorhomes, urgent MOT and services having to be done.
