January 2018 - Sandra & Derek, Dumfries & Galloway, Scotland:
Buying a motorhome from Scottish Tourer was recommended to us by a friend who had purchased an ex rental from Gordon and Corinne 5 years previously. Last year we found ourselves in the market to upgrade our van conversion to something more comfortable and a layout which suited our needs for longer touring.
We looked on the Scottish Tourer website to see what would be available at the end of the season, made a choice within our price range and compared this to what was available on the open market for the same price/age/extras that Scottish Tourer offered. Frankly, there was no comparison.
From our initial enquiry in February to the collection of our motorhome in October, Gordon was extremely helpful and quick to answer any queries we had. On collection day we travelled to Perth and Gordon picked us up at the bus station in town. Corinne gave us a demonstration of the various systems on board saying not to hesitate to contact them if we had any queries. With the engine already run in with 13,000 miles on the clock we were able to give our motorhome a good run down the A9.
Friends were eager to see it, curious to see what an ex rental motorhome would look like after 6 months. Without fail, all were impressed, one commenting it was in “showroom condition”. We did have a couple of snagging issues once we started using our motorhome. These were reported to Gordon who quickly arranged to have them sorted.
We opted to retain the LPG refillable gas system which has proved to be very economical in running the excellent heating system while wild camping during a Scottish winter in sub zero temperatures. We also opted to have a solar panel fitted which Gordon promptly arranged and installed ready for our collection date.
For us, purchasing an ex rental motorhome from Scottish Tourers has been a positive experience. Gordon and Corinne have been very easy to deal with, offering advice and help before and after purchase.
October 2015 - Dave & Jan, Durham, England:
Early last year we made the decision to purchase a motorhome. Having spent months looking at an endless array of motorhomes and campervans up and down the country, and suffering multiple selling agents pressured attempts to sell us something which was overpriced and neither suitable nor what we wanted, six months later we were still no further forward.
In July 14 my brother and his wife ( ref Jamie and Caroline, Darlington Scottish Motorhomes site reviews) hired the Bessacarr 454 from Gordon and Corinne. When listening to them enthuse about how amazing it was, we decided to take a look on the Scottish Tourers website. We loved what we saw and were also quite excited when we noticed that they actually sell their almost new motorhomes at the end of each season. After contacting Gordon we were really impressed by his knowledge of motorhomes and refreshed by his honest and open help that he gave willingly with regards to which van would best suit our need. Unfortunately last year we were too late to secure one of their homes, however this year we were lucky enough to be on their list and picked up our gorgeous Bessacarr several weeks ago.
We have nothing but great respect and admiration for Gordon and Corrine. They are fountains of knowledge on anything motorhome related. Last year, once we had decided which van it was that we wanted, we could have gone to any number of motorhome showrooms to buy the Bessacarr but we didn't as we were happy to wait. This was because we found the service that we had from Gordon to be excellent, really personal, extremely helpful and refreshingly honest with no pressure. He kept in contact with us throughout the whole of this year, (including emailing frequently from his holiday in Portugal when we came up with yet another set of questions), letting us know how the van was doing along with regular photos. When we went to collect it in October they collected us from the station, took us into Perth and then back out to collect the van again, where both Gordon and Corinne took even more time to go through a very comprehensive list of the do's and don'ts, none of which we could have done without.
Our motorhome is fantastic. We are absolutely delighted with it and it was more than well worth the wait. Our many many thanks go to Gordon and Corrine for their very personal and excellent service, their constant help and patience, and for their never ending advice whenever it has been asked for. We would not hesitate to recommend purchasing your motorhome from Scottish Tourers.
October 2015 - Robert & Phyllis, Armadale, Scotland:
We would highly recommend Gordon & Corrine of Scottish Tourer, Perth, if considering purchasing a motorhome.
My wife & I provisionally booked a Swift Escape 664 over a year ago, prior to retirement, and took delivery on 21st October 2015 with no hassle or fuss We had also hired the same model for a week in April this year and had an idea of what to expect.
However on receipt of what was supposedly a second hand vehicle we were delighted with the mileage (previous estimate advised), as well as the high standard and quality of the interior and exterior, which looked very much like new. The difference in price compared to new, meant real value for money and was much more affordable. Having looked at second hand motorhomes at higher prices and poorer condition in various areas, ours seemed like new and came without the usual associated small teething problems. We also found that the average diesel mileage had increased from April by approximately 3 to 4 miles per gallon after being fully run in.
Gordon and Corrine are really enthusiastic about motorhomes and it shows in the extra advice given regarding spares, overnight wild camp parking, waste disposal, fresh water points and a lot of further helpful information, they are also at the end of the phone or get back quick with answers to any e-mail enquiries. This has been used a lot by my wife and I, prior to and since purchase, with no question being considered stupid and their advise has been invaluable.
We have only had the motorhome for a short time and it has hardly been parked in the driveway due to use by my wife and I as well as my son, his wife, and two children(boy 12 & girl 8) My son previously owned a motorhome and spent a year travelling in Europe and he thinks we got a great deal.
We are going to Spain, Portugal and Morocco for a five month trip, with our new motorhome, and armed with Gordon and Corrine's personal telephone number we now feel fully confidant.
I feel that 10 out of 10 does not give justice to the excellent, professional and personal service given and would highly recommend Scottish Tourer, Gordon & Corrine for motorhome buying or rental.
October 2015 - Alan & Eileen, Stirling, Scotland:
In April of 2015 Eileen and I hired a motorhome form Gordon and Corrine at Scottish Tourers which is based near Perth in Scotland.
As ‘first timers’ we were not quite sure what to expect and on meeting Gordon and Corrine we were made to feel at home by their calm and supportive introduction to the brand new motorhome that we were going to hire for the next week.
They gave us instructions on how to make everything work and then supplied us with a Satnav and Map full of suggested camping spots and places of interest.
Because of this support our holiday was absolutely trouble free and so enjoyable. We saw parts of Scotland which were absolutely stunning and although the weather was not quite what we would have preferred, the quality of our motorhome ensured that we were warm and comfortable.
Our experience was so positive that we decided to purchase a motorhome from Gordon and Corrine at the end of the season, as they sell off the new fleet each year in October.
Again their preparation and support in this transaction has been first class and we are so proud and pleased with our ‘new’ motorhome.
Thank you once again Gordon and Corrine.
October 2015 - Susan & Duncan, Perth, Scotland:
Gordon and Corrine sell off their fleet at the end of the season and we bought one. From the moment we made contact with them, they could not have been more helpful. Gordon showed us round the motorhome in between rentals to give us an idea of what it was like. He even kindly drove one all the way across Perth to test if it would actually fit in our drive.
When we finally picked it up halfway through mid-term, they had it all spick and span for us heading off. They are more than happy for us to contact them if we have any queries and the motorhome we have is totally spotless, as in like new. They really take personal pride in their fleet and service and I cannot recommend them enough to anyone considering renting or buying from them. We're just back from our first adventure and are hooked.
