Auto-Sleeper Worcester Video Review Empty A/S Worcester vidio review.

Post by Neuvosleeper Mon Dec 19, 2011 9:41 pm

Well produced video, then i realised it was a dealer, so the rattles and pre used problems were not in evidence. Then, Mercedes are the RR of chassis builders so I am in no position to critizise, after 4000m in my 2011 Nuevo 11 E .K. Peugeot based M/H I now have a reasonably smooth ride after locating squeaky rubbing cables ,catches that rattle, heater that danced and the replacment of the Thetford Fridge. Make sure your supplier has tried the fridge overnight and takes you for a trip prior to delivery, my best wishes are with you, for "over the moon" camping 2012. Smooth away now in our's. wave Brian.

Hi Neuvosleeper... Just to clarify, the video is from the Caravan Channel & it's an independent review up!

I got bored with info already registered, so many of these" exciting" people say nothing about the down-side which is inevitable in every build. I would prefer to hear about the "problems" faced by we owners once the baby is in our pram !! have noted a few from my purchase in May 2011. I am a long term motorhomer --since 1966 Bedford 3 speed "Dormobile" from Martin Walker. Love the Forum. Brian. smile!

It has arrived! Finally got our Worcester, drives beautifully, loads of space and some really nice touches, really love the Merc you can tell the quality is there.

First impressions great, but a few niggles (expected), driven home only so far and the oven door opens every time you hit a bump plus a couple of other silly things. Just a matter of time before I knock the stupid drain off that is under the back two inches from the ground!

Over all early days but should be a great van!!

Wey Hey Groundhog, you got it. J wants to know whether your bum warmers work and what colour your upholstery is. Typical! Let us know how you get on. drinksallround

Hi Groundhog
Delighted you have received your new van, it's too big for my driveway, would love one all the same.i hope it's put together better than some of the Cotswolds members have brought to the forum with their problems.

Hi Groundhog,
Hope you enjoy your new van and as most people know you would expect to find some niggles in the early days with new vans, but from recent posts both AS and the dealers should be more dilligent (good word) in their quality control and PDIs. smile!

Auto-Sleeper Worcester Video Review Empty worcester review

Post by bayleyz Sat Apr 14, 2012 12:50 pm

Hello this is my first ever question!! My wife and i have just seen a Worcester and even though we were adamant on a rear lounge we really like the layout and look of this van. The size ,space, finish seem excellent, however this will be our first m/home and we are wondering if anybody can give us a review of this van if they are current or past owners of a worcester. Being a large investment we are keen to gather any feedback as to reliability /build etc, it seems as if this brand is very good but i am just being a little cautious! Many thanks Paul.

Hi Paul,

Welcome to the forum ..... Our third NZ member allthumbz

Can't help with advice on the Worcester but I'm sure others will up!

In the mean time, can you tell us all a bit about yourself in the "New members introduce yourself" section,

Regards,

Brian & Chris

I came across this thread by accident and thought it might be interesting to some to see how the van has been 10 years and 30000 miles later!
Love the layout, it would be nice to have a fixed bed but we need the huge lounge for.... lounging! The Merc part has given zero problems apart from a water jacket leak after 60 miles and before we even got it home ( fixed instantly by Mercedes), still drives perfectly although a big improvement in rattles by reducing the tyre pressures unladen to 58F/65R. With 29500 miles on the clock still on the original tyres and plenty of meat left yet. Gearbox smooth and the whole thing a joy to drive. Rear ground clearance has not been a problem but I moved the stupid drain tap on to a drop down system which has helped,
Autosleeper part has been overall as good as any other van we have owned and far better than a legendry German one. Most of the problems have been stupid niggly things through less than substantial fitting. Table drawer out of line, heater vents not connected properly, screws missing or too small. Nothing that couldn't be easily fixed and all major fitting have been perfect.
Non Autosleeper bits, the crapice oven, rattle box or whatever you call it, how many hours have I spent "fettling" the thing to stop it rattling. It is pretty good now with an extra door catch, spring loaded hinges and a few more screws in it. How can you hang an oven in place with a few tiny screws and expect it not to work loose and rattle. Truma combi 4 went wrong recently but after spending a fortune on circuit boards, fans and whatever it turned out to be just the switch! Fridge, microwave no issues at all.
Integrated awning, I can see why they dropped that idea! Works perfectly but has to be lifted in to place to catch and no amount of adjustment seems to fix it, I am sure there is a way but I am yet to find it.
Overall then it has been a very good van, a few mostly avoidable issues but thankfully nothing major, the important thing though it is the most comfortable motorhome we have ever owned, it really is luxurious to live in. I see absolutely no reason to spend £100K on a new one when this one does such a great job.
And oh yes, the bum warmer seats are lovely!

Hi, it was interesting reading your recent thread as I have recently purchased a 2012 Worcester. We love the layout etc. As you say the cooker is a rattle box but we have made a few adjustments to reduce the noise. 
Are you saying that you have heated seats where would the switch be for them? . Ours has more switches than a jumbo jet. Previous owners fitted several extras so switches everywhere. The awning light has stopped working hoping it is only the bulb. Have you had to remove the awning light cover? I have tried but don't want to damage it. We have the same issue with the awning.

Hope your worcester brings you lots of happy travels, if you need to know anything and think I may be able to help just pm me.
Never replaced the awning light or tried to remove it I am afraid so can't really help on that one, I believe they are standard to several models so someone else may be able to assist.
I doubt you have heated seats, when we bought the van we specified them from Mercedes as a special order along with a couple of other things, sidewind assist being one. In the unlikely event that you do have them the switches are on the dashboard and very obvious in the centre consol. You can have sidewind assist retrofitted by any dealer. Oddly it is something that I have no idea how effective it is because I have never driven the van without it, seems pretty stable in high winds though.
Enjoy your new van, biased but a great choice. allthumbz

Hi, Thank you for reply it is very much appreciated. I will have to spend some time fiddling with the switches to see what is what. There is an inverter fitted somewhere in the motor home which I am yet to find. As for wind assist not something I am familiar with. I haven't noticed any problem with the wind whilst driving. I am sure we will enjoy our travels in  our new motorhome as I hope you continue to enjoy yours.
