Essential Guide to 2020 motorhomes - Marquis motorhomes
Marquis Majestic 250 motorhome
New for 2020, the exclusive Majestic 250 is a four-berth layout, which adds an exciting new element to the current line-up. It features a fixed island bed at the rear with spacious wardrobes either side of it.
To the front of the motorhome there are two parallel lounge seats which also easily transform into a further double bed at night. Plus, additional passengers can travel in safety thanks to the clever foldaway travel seats hidden below.
The washroom sits in the middle of the motorhome opposite the kitchen, offering an integrated shower but with a dedicated tap and showerhead. The modern countertop-mounted basin allows the space for a decent amount of worktop, too. The kitchen comes complete with a large round sink, full oven/hob/grill and a microwave.
Based on Elddis’ premium Encore range, this motorhome is pretty well specified to start with. However, Marquis has added even more kit to the standard list for this Majestic with the 165bhp engine upgrade, ABS brakes, airbags and tyre pressure monitors. Other features include the exterior BBQ point, rear view camera, awning, Thatcham alarm, tracker and more.
This is a great new alternative layout for a couple or for the family.

Marquis Majestic 115 motorhome
The ever popular Majestic 115 is a compact motorhome that is ideal for the discerning couple. In fact this is one of the very few coachbuilts that is significantly less than 6m long, at 5.70m.
It features a large front lounge-diner that converts into a full-sized double bed – just slide the seat bases to meet in the middle and drop the backrests into place.
Considering this is such a compact model, there is an incredible feeling of space; even on the rainiest of days you shouldn’t feel cooped up.
The well-appointed kitchen and washroom comes fully equipped with everything you need. Plus, that Marquis specification list means you won’t have to add much more to make this a proper luxury tourer for a great price.

Marquis Majestic 196 motorhome
The Majestic 196 is a superb low-profile six-berth, with six dedicated seatbelts so the whole family can travel in safety.
You can make a large double from the light and airy rear lounge seating, while up front a generously-sized double bed descends electrically from above the large lounge, providing two further double beds. The beauty of this twin lounge layout is that it also offers plenty of lounging space for the whole family, too.
In addition, it features a family-sized kitchen (take note of the standard microwave as well as the cooker that has an oven and grill facility) and practical washroom amidships.
This 3,500kg licence-friendly motorhome (can be driven on a standard car licence) is the perfect option for adventurous families! Plus, with the Marquis specification, it represents excellent value.
