is that twenty past eight tonight?

considering that they were going to have dealers in place for the launch of the 2013 models, they seem to be cutting things a bit fine?

This post is great!!!

Can I just say thank you to all the contributors on this post so far? We've literally just joined 'motorhomefacts' ( I haven't even completed our 'intro' info yet) and this thread has been an absolute mine of useful information to help our buying decisions. We plan to buy a Hymer to travel for a year in Europe in (so, LHD - and all being well automatic) - and where we may have to go for repairs/servicing is a big factor as we certainly won't want to have to break our year away to come back to the UK for service! This all makes it look like buying in Europe (maybe even going specifically to Germany) would be the most 'secure' and sensible option for us if we want service/repairs with no 'attitude' or jobsworthness in relation to the vehicle spec. No doubt I'll be back to ask more vehicle-specific questions soon but I just wanted to say thanks to the persistent Hymer owners for pursuing this 'is there a pan-european warranty or not' question. I'm bitterly disappointed that the motorhome industry seems so backward in this respect compared to cars (especially considering the damn machines are built for the purpose of travelling long distances!) but this has been really useful info so far. Looks like a trip to Germany for our purchase may be on the cards....

A trip to Hymers factory in Bad Waldsee is not a bad idea with the exchange rates as they are, they have lots of second hand Hymers for sale and if you go in a van you get free hook up and water on their own "aire".
Another good place to look is Campirama in Belgium, they are really helpful with everything you need to export your van and speak excellent English.

I've just read through the 15 pages of posts, and it is certainly an eye-opener!

Seems odd (from a non Hymer-owning person) that you can buy a German-built vehicle in the EU and seemingly fall out on warranty protection. Fine if you're spending a few hundred pounds, but when you are into serious money like £100k, or even half that figure, it is surely wrong that the manufacturer has this strange attitude to warranty.

I'm not in the financial league that could afford one, but I'd be very careful about buying was I to win the lottery tomorrow.

Has anyone looked into Sale of Goods acts and the other Consumer legislation with respect to this?

After hearing of Brownhills selling a site to Marquis:

Have Hymer and their Uk rep done anything about the remaining franchises to be awarded elsewhere in the Uk.

When I said 2020 I was actually joking

It's about time, Tony. They were supposed to have things in place before the new season's models arrived.....
