Defining Motorhome Reviews.
Whilst reviewing, some well know magazine reviews, thinking what would be the deciding factor defining motorhome reviews. Just focusing on the details of all sorts of motorhomes and campervans recently. Yes, they were very informative and had some very nice pictures and surprise, surprise they all had reviews of 5 to 5.5 stars. How can they all be rated virtually the same? Could it be that they all seam to have large page adverts in the same magazines. We guess we are being a little harsh in jumping to conclusions or are we? Help us to find out!
Motorhome owners are generally very nice people and we do not like what we see. So, this article is about defining motorhome reviews. What does any first time motorhome buyer, really need to know? Well, how about a little honesty, followed by calling a spade a spade! Yes, that first time motorhome buyer deserves better. Because, reallying on a bias opinion, can not only be misleading, but very expensive! Also, we have a quest to get accurate residual values of motorhomes and campervans. With poor inaccurate reviews, comes overstated residual values! No good to man or beast!
Defining Motorhome Reviews.
So, let us break it down a little, many of us have our favourite make and model, but that may be bias in itself! Therefore, we need to break it down and look on forums and see what the real reviews are really about! People who own the motorhomes are the real experts, in reviewing any make or model! If it leaks like a siv, then they are going to let you know. If it rattles along with doors flying open, they will tell you. In fact, if it is the best thing since sliced bread, they will tell you.
The Five Star Motorhome Review!
Now, lets ignore the so called magazine reviews and focus on getting familiar, with real live motorhome journalists, motorhome owners. Over the months we have noticed more an more forums and owners clubs, being on Facebook, Twitter and beyond. All have stories to tell us and advice to give us. In fact, some of that advice, is outstanding in context and truthful. Nothing like what you find, when defining motorhome reviews in magazines. No way, is any motorhome magazine, whose life blood is advertising revenue, going to tell us, that this clients motorhomes are renowned for water ingress. Let alone tell us that the fridge door, has fell of yet again! Or it is worth only an orange and a pencil sharpener. As they say the truth hurts and finding out this amazing review, actually was not quite right, can be costly to you, the customer!
What makes that defining motorhome reviews most truthful moment? What the motorhome is worth second hand, warts and all! On forums people tend to discuss the large and small issues, of what needs mending. The “please can anyone tell me” how, to are common place questions? Therefore, we have started to build a place, that is not so much in the public domain. They are called motorhome groups and they all reside inside our website! Yes, we link from them to other great forums, as we are not in competition. We are on a mission to get accurate residual values,
This has become a quest for a space, for owners, dealers and manufacturers to be frank about their motorhome and discuss with other people. So, from motorhome dealers and manufacturers to actual owners, As such, all can have a good gripe or praise the actual motorhome or campervan. That will help raise standards and flush out good and bad things. We are not interested in flogging advertising space, just giving people a space to air things better. This then will lead to people buying and selling motorhomes and campervans, building a guide to values!
Building Residual Value Guarantees.
If this then leads to actually making residual values more accurate, our job will be done. Why? Well without a sound guarantee of a residual value, then motorhome finance will never have a PMC (personal motorhome plan). The whole car industry revolves around Glasses Guide, CAP (current auction prices) and even Parkers guide. On their residual values then PCP (personal car) plans are based. With a finance company able to work out the payments,all based on what the vehicle is worth, at a time and mileage in the future!
So, firstly if we can build a picture of what is good and what is bad. Thereafter, what sells well and what they are really worth, then we are on our way. Motorhomes and campervans appeal to virtually everyone, it is just the entry price that is the issue. Oh and those questionable motorhome reviews! We need to make them history as well!
