George & Kate – European Motorhome Tour
In 2013 we bought our motorhome from Graham and Linda at Select First Motorhomes before leaving Australia for our European travels. It was a lot of money to hand over for something thousands of miles away, but it turned out the van was even better than we expected! It was in very good condition, drove well, and has a lovely area for sleeping/eating/living. They kitted out the van with good quality equipment and everything we needed which was very handy given we’d never even been in a motorhome before and had no idea what we were doing! Before leaving Australia, they gave us some names of insurance companies, recommended some motorhoming books to buy, and let us use their address to send some items we needed. On our arrival, they were warm and helpful, taking plenty of time to run through the paperwork and sale/buyback process, show us the service records, explain all the functions of our motorhome, give us tips for the road etc etc. It was all so efficient and trouble-free that only a couple of hours after leaving Graham’s yard, we were in Belgium starting the trip of a lifetime!
We love our van so much that we opted out of the buyback and now live in him. He still runs very well after full time use for 4 years and 120,000kms in some harsh conditions including the heat of a Mediterranean summer and a couple of frigid Norwegian/Alpine winters. Graham and Linda have been helpful over email whilst we’ve been on the road with advice on where to get maintenance done in the UK and some general information.
