We bought from Derby [motorhome plus]. I can't say that they are the best but they do stock the full range of AS vans to view indoors. Well worth a visit.

I wouldn't take a guess in your part of the country (although based there for most of my working life)  but there are 2 dealers in the East Midlands who have good reputations and seem popular with members,  Motorhome Plus at Derby has already been mentioned the other is SMC at Newark

Spinney in Cheshire and Cotswold Motorhomes near Cheltenham have both got happy customers from this forum. Whether you want to have to travel such distances for after sales is your choice of course.

With Motorplus, yes but to be honest all of my gripes have been either the fault of AS or FIAT.  The dealers have done a great job for us and as I said they stock the full range to view and compare at your leisure [even if you eventually  buy from elsewhere].

We've had two vans from Motorplus and been very satisfied with the service there, some of which included warranty work.
We've been motorhoming since 1996 and have bought from Brownhills (never had a problem with the vans from there so I can't comment on their service if you have a problem), and from Todds of Preston.
Motorplus has been the best all round.

We have bought from three dealers,
Marquis Preston (No comment)
Motorplus Derby (Excellent) and
SMC Newark (Excellent).
Our van is a Mercedes Bourton.
Cant comment on after-sales as we have had any warranty work done at the Autosleepers Service Centre and had superb service.

Can recommend SMC in Newark.  The Salesman was a bit patronising but the after service has been excellent.  We've had several small issues fixed under warranty.
