HYMER B584

David and Gayle are pictured collecting their Hymer motorhome from Shane Catterick at T C Motorhomes, on the hottest day of the year so far ! .. Thank goodness the HYmer is equipped with Cab Air Conditioning !

Especially when the journey home from T C `s was a long one .. all the way back to Tywyn, Gwynedd in Wales..

Having found the motorhome they were looking for on the T C Motorhomes web-site (www.tcmotorhomes.com) David and Gayle like so many of T C`s customers were content to make whatever length of journey was necessary, if they felt they were buying the right vehicle, at a fair price, from a dealership that promotes trust, and that they feel confident dealing with.

David & Gayle exchanged several telephone conversations and e.mails with Shane Catterick, and increasingly felt that all these values were in place at T C `s and pursued their interest in the Hymer, ( which had been recently been taken in part exchange at T C`s ) ..

They arranged to visit one Saturday a couple of weeks ago, they looked, they test-drove, they negotiated a mutually acceptable deal with Shane Catterick of T C `s, they took lunch at the Reculver Towers public house .. ( The King Ethelbert) and then returned home allowing T C`s a week to carry out the mechanical and habitation servicing as well as cam-belt replacement, fitting of some accessories , ( TV Aerial & Reversing Camera ) and of course MOT and final valet.

David and Gayle returned to T C`s the following Saturday by train, and Shane Catterick collected them from Herne Bay Train Station, before returning to the dealership in Hillborough, just north of Herne Bay, to conduct a detailed `hand-over` of the vehicle, and to finalise the paperwork.

Once this was completed over a cup of tea and a biscuit, Gayle and David hit the road for the journey home, a comfortable `event-free` journey, in the comfort of a great motorhome .. The HYMER B584

Autocruise Rhythm motorhome


Kerry & Ann were blessed with some glorious sunshine earlier this week, when they collected their new Autocruise Rhythm motorhome from Kents Premier New & Used Motorhome Dealership.. T C Motorhomes Herne Bay.

Kerry & Ann had missed having the opportunity to get away at a moments notice, having sold a previous motorhome some months ago, and so contacted Shane Catterick at T C `s.

The Autocruise Rhythm with its sleek appearance, advanced specification, and compact design was the right option for Kerry & Ann, and as soon as it was delivered to T C `s a couple of weeks ago the preparation began.

Weekends away, and some mountain hiking trips are already being planned by Kerry & Ann who aim to use their fantastic new motorhome as often as possible ..

Swift Kon-Tiki 645 Motorhome


Garth & Gillian are pictured taking delivery of their Swift Kon-Tiki 645 Motorhome,  from Shane Catterick of TC Motorhomes.

Garth & Gillian`s  journey to T C Motorhomes in Herne Bay Kent was a long one ! .. travelling as they did from their home in Barry, Wales ..

Garth commented that he and Gillian had looked at Swift Kon-Tiki`s closer to home, but couldn’t find a good enough example that they both would have wanted to buy, either privately or from motorhome dealerships in their area.

At T C `s they found an excellent example, fully detailed on the T C Motorhome web-site .. tcmotorhomes.com with the right layout at the right price.

Over the phone and after an exchange of emails, the deal was done..and the preparation / servicing of Garth & Gillians Swift Kon-Tiki began..

The handover / exchange was next...

A 4 am start from “Barry” in the Vale Of Glamorgan,  meant they were pulling up at T C`s in Herne Bay at just after 9am..

A quick transfer of personal effects from both the car & caravan that were both being part exchanged, a quick coffee and completion of paperwork, and Garth & Gillian once again hit the road, keen to get home and prepare for their first Kon-Tiki outing to the Mendips this weekend ..

Garth & Gillian`s story is not unusual, with many of our customers prepared to make long journeys in order to secure the Motorhome or Caravan of their dreams, from a dealership they can trust.

From T C Motorhomes,  they also make that journey,  safe in the knowledge that the Motorhome or Caravan they are going to buy will be as described, and prepared to the very highest standards.

Best Family Motorhome


Further award success adds to Bailey of Bristol's growing reputation in the motorhome market

Bailey of Bristol has added to its growing reputation in the motorhome market with the receipt of another top industry award. This time it was the company's six-berth Approach SE 760 model which took the plaudits from Practical Motorhome Magazine as it claimed their Best Family Motorhome 2012 prize.

Commenting on the Approach SE 760 Practical Motorhome said:

"This Brit-built newcomer has stormed the motorhome market with its combination of roomy interior, superb manufactured quality and focus on passenger safety"

"This really is an impressive family motorhome" they added.

Bailey Approach SE 740 and SE 745 were also shortlisted in the 'Best Coachbuilt for Two' and 'Best Coachbuilt for Four' categories respectively in the same competition highlight the all round appeal of the company's debut motorhome range. When combined with the results of the recent Caravan Club Motor Caravan Design and Drive Competition 2012 in which the SE 625 and SE 745 both received recognition, with the latter being declared the Overall Winner, this means that four out of five of models in the range have now received prestigious third-party endorsements from leading industry sources.

Award success has been mirrored by retail sales success on Retailer forecourts over the past twelve months and as a result the existing Approach SE range will enter the 2013 model year unchanged. This is in-line with established Bailey product development policy where instead of changing ranges on a fixed date every twelve months the company is more customer lead undertaking a product re-design only when the market decides it is necessary.

The great news for potential customers is that also means that OTR prices for Approach SE models are currently being held at 2012 levels - meaning a new Bailey motorhome looks even better value in today's market place.

Based on Peugeot's Euro 5 Boxer cab the new Bailey Approach SE range is designed to be driven with all models featuring a 2.2 Hdi 130 bhp engine complete with a 6-speed manual gearbox, an AL-KO AMC chassis and the Alu-Tech bodyshell as standard specification. This combines with beautifully-styled British interiors, which provide comfort and practicality in equal measure, and a level of specification not normally found on vehicles in this price bracket to make the new Approach SE the complete motorhome range.

Safety considerations are of paramount importance in any new motorhome and Bailey has given a great deal of thought to this aspect of product design. As a result key features, such as an ABS braking system plus driver and passenger airbags are specified as standard in the cab and three-point seatbelts are fitted to all dedicated rear passengers seats. In an Industry first Bailey has taken this thought process to the next stage by investigating the strength of the caravan habitation area in simulated crash tests using the facilities at the internationally renowned Millbrook Proving Ground.
 
Throughout the testing the high performance Alu-Tech bodyshell stood up well to the examination and required very little in the way of modification. However, following the results of the initial trails, Bailey did make changes to the design of both the caravan floor and furniture, including a dedicated stowage location for wall-mounted tables whilst in transit, to enhance passenger protection.

Bailey would also like to thank Practical Motorhome Magazine for running this annual competition, particularly in light of the amount of organisation required, and is very grateful for any recognition received for its motorhome and caravan ranges.
