Marquis Leisure has built up a very strong track record for bringing new motorhome brands to the UK, which it sells exclusively. 

In the past few years, we’ve seen first Benimar and more recently, Mobilvetta – both Trigano subsidiaries, like Marquis – re-established in the UK through Marquis’s 12-strong dealer network. 

On the whole, these have been (initially) low-profiles and A-classes. But through sister firm Auto-Sleepers, Marquis is, of course, also known for van conversions. 

So when Trigano launched a new venture building campervans, it seemed only natural that Marquis would want a piece of the action. And it did, launching two Randger campervans earlier this year: both four-berths with pop-up roofs. 

And in case you were wondering, we should point out that the name is not an example of French people getting their English wrong. We are told ‘Randger’ should be pronounced like a nasal version of ‘Roger’ rather than our English ‘Ranger’.

Of the two models, the R535 – with a side/end kitchen and even a small washroom – won over our Motorhome of the Year Awards judges. We took an R535 to South Lea Caravan Park, near Pocklington, for a spin to see why.
