Motorhome dealer Marquis launches exclusive automatic campervan range


The UK’s largest motorhome dealer network, Marquis Leisure, in association with sister company, Auto-Sleepers, has launched an exclusive range of campervans fitted with Fiat’s new nine-speed automatic gearbox as standard.

The new Auto-Sleeper automatic campervan range will be available throughout the Marquis network (now up to 13 branches). To coincide with their debut, Marquis Surrey (at Gomshall, near Guildford) has opened its Auto-Sleepers Campervan Centre offering sales, service and parts for these vehicles. The Surrey site also has a brand-new showroom, completed just before Christmas, which will display seven of the eight-model range indoors so they can be examined all-year round whatever the weather, seven days a week.

The eighth model (a Fairford, currently) will be available for test drives, so customers can experience Fiat’s new torque converter transmission, which replaces the previous Comfort-Matic.

The new automatic range is equipped with the latest Euro 6d 140bhp engine and comes fully specified as standard with all the features usually associated with Auto-Sleepers’ Premium Pack (including cab air-conditioning, cruise control, reversing camera, DAB radio, sat-nav and a leather steering wheel), as well as the Winter Pack and Truma Aventa roof air-conditioning. All vehicles will be in white with a choice of two upholstery styles and five colourways.

Alan Buckwell, Sales & Marketing Director at Marquis, commented: “We identified a gap in our new motorhome ranges for a higher specification van conversion. With our sister company, Auto-Sleepers, we have created an all-inclusive premium Fiat van conversion range in line with our one-spec, one-pricing policy to give our customers the best value for money.”

All the familiar Auto-Sleeper layouts are available in the Marquis automatic range, with medium, long and extra-long versions available. Starting with the 5.41m-long Symbol (front lounge), the range then moves up to the six-metre Symbol Plus (front lounge, L-kitchen) and Warwick Duo (rear lounge), before concluding with the 6.36m vehicles. These longest models are the Fairford (four-berth with front and rear lounges), Fairford Plus (four-berth, rear foldaway double bed), Kemerton XL (large rear washroom), Kingham (French bed) and Warwick XL (rear lounge).

Prices start at £62,995 on-the-road.
