Motorhome Model Hints and Tips >> AutoTrail Motorhomes
Ive been looking at a new mohawk but I'm having second thoughts after the negative feedback I'm seeing on new autotrails.
They are no worse than other UK built Motorhomes. Whatever you buy you pay your money and take you chance. In my opinion they are STILL the best British built Motorhome.
Remember you ONLY hear of the faults and they are really quite few in numbers when you consider 1 in 4 Motorhomes sold are from the Auto Trail stable.
We have had 4 since 2007 and ok we have had some very minor problems (except the clutch/ gearbox issues) all fixed very quickly by the dealers West Country and Chelston. The most serious problem in th 4 vans was a faulty kitchen tap. Minor problems with faulty LED lights an habitation door required adjustment.
Good to hear DJP - can't wait for my new one to arrive!!
Just thought it might help others to report my experience of my 8 week old Dakota.
Having just finished our tour of German etc and given the van a good shakedown I'm about to take my van in for warranty repairs.
The issues I have are as follows :
Rubish fit on bathroom door ... new one to be fitted
Loads of screw cap covers missing.
Entry step not going out fully ... trip hazard
Bubble in moulded grp panel ... needs to be repaired
Poor sink seal..to be replaced
Thetford toilet fan not working ... Investigations required.
Squeaking brakes .... and I really mean squeaking .
Handbrake needs adjusting.
Missing toilet shelving
Minor damage to front cab flooring....to be replaced.
Water cap doesn't lock.
That's about it and to be honest I think we have been lucky and haven't ended up with a Friday afternoon build ( so far fingers crossed).
All of these issues should of course have been picked up by Autotrails PDQ checks but weren't but the dealer is sorting for me .
My overall opinion is that this model is a big step forward and im very pleased with it but still a little more thought could have been given to some of the fittings and finishes.
