February Motorhome Show at NEC

The Caravan, Camping and Motorhome Show 2017 gets underway at the Birmingham NEC Exhibition Centre on Tuesday 21st February until Sunday 26th February.

T C Motorhomes from their purpose built showroom & after-sales facility just outside Herne Bay, represent the following Motorhome Manufacturers:

Elddis, Chausson, & the Swift Group and as such will have representation at the Birmingham Motorhome & Caravan show.

If you are from Kent or beyond, and would like to purchase a new or used motorhome, either a new Elddis, a Chausson, a Swift, a Bessacarr, an Escape or an Autocruise product, and favour the idea of dealing with an established dealership reasonably close to home, (a sensible plan most people would agree) you can contact me, Shane Catterick at the show on 0791 786 8897 or back at the dealership on 01227 289111 after the event.

Increasingly we are finding, that customers are using the show to narrow their choice of suitable vehicles, ( its ideal for this purpose, with so many motorhomes essentially under one large roof to view and appraise ), to create a short list of one or two models, and then visit us here in Herne Bay, (or their local dealer if there`s one nearer than us) where sensible reasoned discussions can take place, in a more tranquil environment than you might find at the show.

There are lots of exciting new models being unveiled at the show, so if you would like to be there and would like a complementary ticket or two, contact Shane Catterick at T C Motorhomes on 01227 289111 (shane@tcmotorhomes.com)

(Tickets are limited, and available on a strictly First Come First Serve Basis)

I hope to see you there ..

Swift RIO 340

Newly moved into the New Romney area of Kent,  and past customers of T C Motorhomes, Mr & Mrs Price are looking forward to being able to use the Rio a little more than the Autocruise Rhythm that’s been replaced. (also purchased from T C Motorhomes)

Mrs Price confirmed that the Rio wasn’t much longer than the Rhythm, but was much more spacious inside, and ideally suited to the three passengers on board ..

That`s Mr & Mrs Price,  and of course the German Shepherd Pet Dog, who is very much part of the family, and likes to travel everywhere with them ..

The Rhythm on occasion seemed very compact and cramped by comparison.

Mr Price added that the Swift RIO 340 with its massive top hinged tailgate would enable them to be in the motorhome when stationery, and when the weather permitted, could have the rear door up and the dog enclosure / drive-away awning off the back of the motorhome, ideal !

Shane Catterick and his colleagues at T C Motorhomes wish Mr & Mrs Price all the best for this New Year, grateful thanks for their valued order and continued support,  and many, many miles of Happy Motorhoming ..

Trigano TRUBUTE 650

Mr & Mrs Johnson from Broadstairs in Kent, have just celbrated another wedding anniversary by treating themselves to a newer more compact motorhome, and are pictured taking delivery of it from T C Motorhomes in Herne Bay.

The Trigano TRUBUTE 650 motorhome will still provide comfortable sleeping, cooking & washing facilities for the Johnsons,  but fair to say is more driveable and manageable through the smaller roads of the British Isles, Than their previous Left Hand Drive Burstner motorhome, that they were able to part exchange with the Tribute`s supplier, T C Motorhomes.

Shane Catterick, Tony Chamberlain and all of the staff at T C Motorhomes wish the Johnsons every happiness with their motorhome.
