The buzz, excitement and busy-ness of show week has long since passed, the boys in the factory have resumed their usual hum, stepping it up just a notch, and the sales staff are frantic!
My heart was on my sleeve showing my work first time round at the Hamilton Show, but Mandy our Sales Manager made a lovely comment on “how they made her job easier” and Shaun our General Manager passed comment on my troublesome build saying, “it was like walking into a luxury hotel suite”. Wonderful!
On walking around the yard today I see two of my builds are SOLD – so all’s well here.
The last month or so has had me working with several clients on making small changes to vehicles they have bought as pre owned.
When looking for a motorhome, and a new motorhome is out of the budget, don’t discount the huge range of traded vehicles as well as owners selling on behalf of, we have here on our yard.
Often these motorhomes have great kitchens/bathrooms that are practically new, along with carpets and vinyls hardly showing signs of wear. For minimal cost changing the upholstery fabric on your lounge squabs/cab seats, gives a fresh brand new look, and it’s a small way of putting your mark on it for maximum effect.
If the motorhome has dated, scruffy curtains, again changing the fabric gives a new look, or if the space works, Roman Blinds are modern and let in more light.
Cushions and new bedding is also a small way of creating the WOW effect, and modernizing the overall look.
On looking at this before picture it is hard to see really what needs changing. The previous owners were very careful and took pride in keeping their motorhome spotless. The colours were neutral and toned in well together with a hint of blue running through the fabric.
