MOTORHOME NUMBER 11 - Eddie, A Rimor Koala 48 in Europe

Our first ever brand new vehicle of any kind - a Rimor Koala motorhome.

We bought it on the Internet unseen through what turned out to be "dodgy" dealer for £30,000.  The motorhome came from the factory in Italy and although we didn't receive it until April 2011 we paid in full in November 2010 and got a reduction from what we were told was the £45000 normal price.  Basically the factory needed to clear out their 2010 models.   The dodgy part of the dealer, well he wasn't registered as a Rimor supplier and his after sales service and back up was appalling however luckily Rimor is well recognised throughout Europe and we got good service under warranty in France and Germany.
