Lunar motorhomes are coming to the UK's largest dealership network, as industry giant Marquis Leisure is appointed to sell the brand's 2018-season line-up

Marquis Leisure has announced that it has been appointed to sell Lunar motorhomes for the 2018 touring season.

This includes Roadstar and Landstar models, as well as the all-new and yet-to-be-revealed, three-strong Cassini line-up, which will be unveiled this week at the Motorhome and Caravan Show at the NEC Birmingham.

Two branches, Marquis Hampshire, near Southampton, and Marquis South Yorkshire, near Sheffield, will both stock these three product lines from Lunar.

More motorhomes for sale!

This means that next time you pay a visit to your local Marquis Leisure, there will be an even wider range of motorhomes for sale.

Marquis already sells Auto-Sleeper, Auto-Trail, Elddis, Benimar and Mobilvetta ’vans, plus its own dealer-special line-up of Elddis-based Majestic models.

"We are delighted to secure the contract to supply Lunar motorhomes," commented Alan Buckwell, Sales Director of Marquis Leisure.

"As with Lunar's ranges of caravans, these motorhomes have the reputation of quality, style and value for money. We are very excited to add these models to our growing portfolio of luxury motorhomes which are some of the best of British and come from a company who has been established for over 45 years, and its reputation for customer service is second to none."

This follows Lunar's recently announced takeover of Wellhouse Leisure.

Marquis has also been in the headlines a few times this year. Back in August, Marquis acquired Michael Jordan Caravans and Motorhomes, rebranding it Marquis Surrey at the site's reopening on 1 September.

In addition, in January, Marquis Leisure, together with Auto-Sleepers, was sold to the Trigano Group.
