How much thought did you put into choosing your motorhome dealer? Many buyers will simply go to the dealership closest to them – or perhaps simply the one that offers the best deal on their new or used model.
But there’s actually a lot more to think about than that. If something goes wrong, will your dealer look after you and your motorhome? Do they have a good amount of experience in dealing with motorhomes and their owners over the years?
Do they have a decent selection of motorhomes in stock? And are previous customers happy with their experiences?
That’s certainly a lot of boxes to tick, but one dealership that can claim to answer ‘yes’ to them all is Choose Leisure.
Based in Canterbury, Choose Leisure was founded back in 2008, by Paul Santos.
Over the years the company has grown and grown; in September 2011 Choose Leisure purchased the site on the A28 in Chartham, allowing it to expand.
Additional development of the workshop area in July 2022 helped bring Choose Leisure the state-of-the-art facilities that it continues to offer today.
Great stock, ready and waiting
Visit Choose Leisure this year and you’ll be able to browse around 100 motorhomes and campervans, all carefully chosen and prepared by the team.
There are both new and used ‘vans to see, in both the indoor and outdoor displays; new models are available from some of the industry’s biggest brands, including Auto-Sleepers, Laika, Carthago, Swift and Hillside.
Choose Leisure is handily located if you live in the south-east, of course, but if you’re travelling to Dover or Folkestone to catch a ferry, it makes a great place to stop, pick up any essentials that you might have forgotten, and have a browse of the great range of stock.
And that’s not all – if you want to sell your motorhome, Choose Leisure offers a clever brokerage scheme. This allows you to get the best price for your ‘van, without needing to deal with any time-wasting buyers, saving you both time and cash.
A gold standard in motorhomes
But what do other Practical Motorhome readers think about Choose Leisure? The proof is in the dealership’s success at our most recent Owner Satisfaction Awards.
Thousands of motorhome owners gave feedback on their dealer – including whether they’d buy from them again – and Choose Leisure won an amazing two gold awards, in both the new- and used-motorhome categories. That’s impressive stuff, and testament to the solid service you’ll receive.
This year promises to be hugely exciting for Choose Leisure, too, as it celebrates its 15th birthday – keep an eye on the website for full details of this very special event!
