Motorhome sourcing and support service

The motorhome sourcing and support service is designed to assist with all the various aspects of purchasing a motorhome in France. Choosing a model, finding suitable options, communicating with dealers and assisting with purchase paperwork.

Deciding on a vehicle

If you aren’t sure what vehicle to go for then I can help advise on manufacturers and models that may suit as well as checking their availability.

Used Motorhomes

I can search my dealer contacts for used options who don’t advertise widely to see if they have a similar or preferable option as well as the main nationwide classified sites.

New Motorhomes

Once you are decided on a model, I can make the enquiries with my dealer network to check if there are any available on pre-order or if a new order is required. Then assist with all the paperwork, correspondence and financing details.

Current waiting times are between 6 – 12 months with no absolute guarantee on delivery date so flexibility in your trip planning is important.

An important consideration is payload, I outline all the key points here: How much payload do I need and what are the rules?

Making contact & arranging the sale

Culturally in France it can be difficult to get a response to emails and a phone call is often required to make the initial enquiry.

As part of the service I will make contact with any external dealers, ask the questions you may have then arrange a viewing if required and assist with all the paperwork involved.

A common question is the practice of discounts or extras, I outline why France Motorhome Sales does not negotiate on price here.

Purchase methods

Clients have 3 x main ways to secure a vehicle depending on what you are most comfortable with:

1) No financial commitment – Hire a car or motorhome on arrival in France and view previously identified vehicles in person.

2) Secure with deposit – Deposit amounts are typically 10% which will reserve you a vehicle for up to 4 weeks. You will sign a sales document with the dealer and pay in full on inspection.

3) Purchase in full – Whilst uncomfortable for some, this is the most common method with the main benefit being that all the registration paperwork and vehicle preparation can be completed before you arrive.

Vehicle inspections

For an additional fee, I can have an external nationwide company travel to the motorhome you are interested in and have them produce an inspection report attesting to its current condition. This is most appropriate for older vehicles with higher Kms. If buying new or fairly new from a dealer, the existing laws mean you are well protected and post-purchase issues are extremely rare.

Pick-up day

Included in the service is assistance on the day you collect your vehicle. Language assistance at the dealership, video translations during the explanation of the vehicle, reviewing legal documents, appointment scheduling, travel arrangements and insurance activation questions.


Prior to committing to a vehicle, I will arrange an insurance quote for you with my contacts at AXA or Allianz. Both agencies are English speaking and will complete the policy details with you direct.


In most cases the service fee is 1500 EUR. Please get in touch for a specific quote detailing the proposed vehicle value, weight category and specifications required.
