Autotrail Mohawk, a quick look and what we found!
Stopped in a lay-by near a dealer for a cuppa. Decided to have a browse.
Several brand new Autotrails on display. Stepped into an Autotrail Savannah but had already seen one, so looked in the 'van next door; a Mohawk; similar layout to our Autocruise Starblazer with a transverse double bed. Quite nice.
There was a lot of 'sawdust' about, even on some of the appliances. I have been told before that they leave it to the dealer to clean: don't know if true or not, but seemed to be more mess than usual.
Anyway, the kitchen cupboard was missing it's door. I looked in the bed area and the shelf unit on the back wall had an exposed shelf edge ( it was 'lightweight plywood' similar to Voringher board, not 'mdf' or chipboard ). The finishing edge trim was not there: missing.
The shelf above the window at the foot of the bed looked odd, with more 'dust' and a couple of screws laying there.
The shelf was loose as was the front finishing trim. Nearly fell off when I touched it.
One of the spotlights in the 'lounge' area was missing it's light unit.
In the cab there were two wires hanging from a hole in the roof lining: missing cab light.
Was it delivered to the dealer in this state I wonder? Or, had the dealer been 'nicking bits'? Unlikely I would think: why would they need to, from a brand new 'van?
Just in case anyone thinks otherwise: I have no 'axe to grind' and am not lying. ( ref: previous report on an Autocruise )
Does anyone else come across such things when viewing 'vans or is it just me and the missus?
