Here we have my November 2005 Concorde Charisma I880f luxury motorhome, based on a Mercedes Sprinter 616CDI chassis - Carrie. On the chassis side of things she has a 5-cylinder 2.7l engine mated to the slushiest of slushy autoboxes (far superior to the semi-automatic Sprintshifts which are fitted to many of the same era) and plated at 5,990kg Maximum Gross Vehicle Weight. Empty she weighs in at around a "mere" 4,500kg giving a tad under 1,500kg payload. She is 8.9m long, 2.4m wide and 3.4m long. When new she retailed at around £180,000 - today her equivalent would set you back in excess of £250,000! Carrie currently has a tad under 47k under her wheels.
I bought her a little over two years ago in August 2017 as my effective "home". As many of you will remember, at that point I had been living in my previous Hymer motorhome for around 8 months; having braved a pretty cold winter in a non-winterised van with a single skin floor and fairly basic...
I'm the first to criticise dealers but just recently my experiences have been first class
1) My G30 was recalled for the EGR. Booked in for check EGR changed same day. G31 loan car provided
2) Wifes X1 sufferd corrosion on one wheel. Called in when passing, quick look, confirm corrosion . New wheel ordered and replaced whilst I waited
3) Noticed that the stitching on the knee support on the front seat on the G30 was coming apart. Called in, visual inspection by dealer 99% sure it would be covered under warranty. Booked in and new seat swab ordered. Car went in this week for the day. G 31 loan car provided.
No quibbles from the dealer or BMW warranty dept...not sure it would be so straightforward with other marques
