An in­dus­try ex­pert has emerged at just the right time with spe­cial­ist ad­vice for grey no­mads and fam­i­lies in the mar­ket for their dream “get­away” recre­ational ve­hi­cle. John’s com­pany spe­cialises in con­vert­ing low kilo­me­tre pre-loved ve­hi­cles into lux­ury mo­torhomes and camper­vans.

Buyer Be­ware

“You have to be re­ally care­ful th­ese days,” Mr Jef­freys says. “There are some good, hon­est op­er­a­tors out there but also some who are just out for the quick sale. If you don’t know what you’re do­ing it can not only cost you se­ri­ous money but also ruin what are sup­posed to be the best years of your life full of fun, free­dom and new ex­pe­ri­ences,” he said. It’s true un­less you are well schooled in all the ins and outs of the var­i­ous ve­hi­cles it can be a daunt­ing task.

Do Your Home­work

Another ma­jor prob­lem is that peo­ple don’t do enough home­work about what they re­ally want. They end up with beds that are hard to get in or out of or dif­fi­cult to make in the morn­ings. So what’s the best recre­ational ve­hi­cle to buy?

John says it de­pends on three things: 1. Your needs and wants 2. Your bud­get 3. Your per­sonal tastes.

“You can save up to $50,000 on a newly ren­o­vated, low kilo­me­tre preloved mo­torhome,” Mr Jef­freys says. “When peo­ple see the qual­ity of the fin­ished prod­uct and just how cost ef­fec­tive it is they are usu­ally blown away. The big new RVs are nice but you cer­tainly pay for them.” The ben­e­fits of the con­verted mo­torhome is that most of them are au­to­matic, re­quire only a nor­mal car li­cense and can be fit­ted out to your tastes, in­clud­ing be­ing able to walk around your bed and make it he said.

Help is at Hand

What buy­ers need to re­mem­ber is that when they go to pur­chase there is a big power im­bal­ance. “How many mo­torhomes do you buy in your life? Well, you’re up against sales­peo­ple who do it ev­ery day. So you have to be care­ful about who you lis­ten to or you could get talked into some costly mis­takes” John warns. Mr. Jef­freys has just re­leased a com­pli­men­tary in­for­ma­tion kit, “Here Come the Best Years of Your Life – A Guide for As­tute Mo­torhome and Cam­per­van Stress Free Travel and Gen­uine Lifestyle Free­dom” (val­ued at $97). In this in­dus­try- first FREE kit Mr Jef­freys out­lines just about ev­ery­thing you need to know to be­come an “in­formed con­sumer”.
