Rick, there is a lot of information online on the various motorhome forums and Facebook pages relating to the vast number of Motorhomes coming from the UK. Some of the forums or Facebook pages are company run therefore very one sided and often no negative comments see the light of day for very long, better to search for forums or Facebook pages run by groups of owners of the specific brands. Try typing in the year, brand and model of the motorhome that interests you, then UK owners forum or Facebook page. That could be a good starting point for you.
We recently sold our ‘forever’ 2017 imported UK caravan because it no longer suited us after receiving a brutal cancer diagnosis. We have now decided that we do after all need an RV for the lifestyle we want to continue for as long as we can, but a low set light weight motorhome was a better option now due to my cancer diagnosis.
We are currently waiting for delivery of a CI Motorhomes 2019 Riviera 82xt motorhome which we have recently purchased through Shane Smale at Walkabout Motorhomes Ash Rd Wiri. In our many years of buying various motorhomes and caravans, Shane would be the easiest sales person/business owner we have ever come across. He does what he says he will do and is very easy to deal with. His replies to either emails or txts are fast and thorough. Shane has a new shipment of Motorhomes which arrived into the country last week. I don’t know if they are all presold, he has several nearly new models out on his yard at Wiri as well. Our new vehicle is currently in the workshop of the contractor who Shane uses, where it is currently having all the many extra electrical components we have specified, fitted, ( lithium 200 amp battery, 2200 PSW Inverter, 520 watts solar, and much more) plus the awning, the TV etc are being fitted there as well. It is a huge bonus that this is all being done by a competent motorhome person and all being done at the one workshop, other than the duraseal coating which is being done elsewhere.
The only thing that we hesitated about prior to ordering our new Riviera 82xt motorhome was that the habitation door is on the drivers door side ( the motorhome was built in Italy.) After talking to several people who have this configuration we decided that it wouldn’t be a problem for us and we placed our order with delivery probably late next week. There are various layouts, models and sizes in the CI Motorhomes range. The Trademe listing number for a similar motorhome to ours is https://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/carava ... 90bc251ca9
