Now here’s a name you may soon see more often on UK roads and campsites – Benimar. Marquis Motorhomes, Britain’s biggest dealer group, has signed an exclusive deal to bring a range of Spanish-built Mileo low-profiles into the UK.

Benimar is part of the mighty Trigano group, parent company of leading European brands like Chausson, Roller Team and Auto-Trail, and builds 3000 ’vans a year – from A-classes to van conversions – at its base in the Castellon region.

Marquis will initially import five Mileo models; each layout sports a fixed bed for comfort and convenience. Built to British specification with right-hand drive and the habitation door on the UK nearside, all models are under 3500kg, so they can be driven by anyone with an ordinary car licence.

We grabbed a sneak peek at the Mileo 201, which has a height-adjustable transverse rear bed over a spacious garage. It is crammed with kit and priced from £39,995 on the road.
