Q & A
Will you tell us exactly which vehicle to buy?
No, this is not a specific vehicle finder service. This is an opportunity for you to talk through your needs and identify the kind of vehicle that would suit you the best. You’ll be able to narrow down your search and be aware of the implications of your choices which might affect your enjoyment of that vehicle.
I have worked with a variety of brands over the past few years, which helped me gain thorough knowledge about a wide range of products. These brands include Adria, Airstream, Auto Campers, Bürstner, Carado, Etrusco, Sun Living, and Vantage. I only work with brands who share my values and allow me to speak the candid truth about my experience.
When you receive your session feedback, I aim to give you at least three models to check out. I’m happy to advise, but the actual decision is yours.
Can you recommend a specific used van or do you only deal with new vehicles?
We can certainly talk about used purchases and I can give you some pointers, but as you will find out, the condition of a used purchase is normally more important than the make or model. Accurate and consistent specifications of used models can be hard for me to find, but I can advise you which questions to ask the vendor.
We’ve found this great van online. Can you take a look at it for us and give us a yes or no
We really don’t know where to start. Can you help us?
Absolutely! If you really have no idea where to start, book a session, and complete the questionnaire beforehand. This will help me prepare for our chat and make the best use of our time, equipping you with the knowledge and facts you need to target your search.
We have a leisure vehicle and have a good idea of what we want to replace it with. Would you be able to help us?
Yes, of course. Even if you are fairly experienced and just want to run your thoughts past someone knowledgeable who will give you an honest answer without prejudice, we can tailor your session to do just that.
What can you tell us that we can’t find out for ourselves online?
I openly share my knowledge online, as do many others. You will eventually find the answers you want online, but this could take you a few weeks and might lead you down some unhelpful rabbit holes. My offering is here to help you make efficient use of your time and help you quickly identify the best kind of leisure vehicle for your needs.
What can you offer that we can’t find out by asking friends or people on social media?
After 20 years of reviewing and using all kinds of leisure vehicles, I have vast knowledge of the industry. I also worked on the front line in the travel industry for 25 years, so I’m able to put my own views aside and support people’s specific needs in a professional and sensitive way. Friends, Social Media, and online forums can be great ways to ask for advice, and this advice is normally given with the best of intention. However, many people will recommend what works for them (or malign what doesn’t), and that might not be in your best interest.
We will be renting a camper van and we know you are ‘Mr. Hebrides.’ Can you plan a touring itinerary for us?
While my offering is primarily for those choosing a new Leisure Vehicle, I can tweak the offering to talk about a leisure vehicle tour of Scotland and the Outer Hebrides. The feedback document afterwards will offer a proposed itinerary based on our conversation. However, for the rest of the UK and Europe I can only give you an outline of what to expect when using your leisure vehicle and chat about touring in general — I will be unable to plan a specific itinerary for you.
How about buying our motorhome outside the UK, for example in Germany?
I can only offer advice about the UK market. The UK is no longer part of the EU, and nobody really knows yet about the implications of buying abroad.
Do you get commission if we buy a specific brand?
No, I do not accept commission from any manufacturer or dealer. It’s a way to ensure complete independence and integrity.
Where do we sign up?
SIGN UP HERE. Please be aware that at least ten days notice is normally required for a session.
