Thinking of purchasing a New Motorhome?
For the motorhome enthusiast who loves to live life to the full, a brand new motorhome provides the ultimate in touring comfort with the latest technological advances and stylish design, however there are also many other good reasons to choose new.

 These include:

  • Excellent warranties on both the base vehicle and habitation area
  • Comprehensive Dealer support and maintenance
  • The latest engine and safety technology
  • Greater fuel efficiency and reduced emissions
  • Modern construction and latest innovations
  • Hand picking a layout ideally suited to your needs

With so many different brands on the market at different levels of the quality spectrum it is important to know what you are getting for your investment. For this reason, we highly recommend some in-depth research before you buy. Therefore, we have listed some key considerations before making your decision.

Here at Anchor Point Motorhomes, we have always taken extreme care to supply brands that represent quality and exceptional industry know how. In operation since 1999, our most well established brands include Burstner, who have just celebrated their 30th anniversary and Benimar, who produced its first motorhome almost 40 years ago, with full scale production over the past 32 years. This level of expertise and experience makes all the difference in particular in the following areas:


The type of materials used in motorhomes can have a significant impact, on durability, safety, insulation levels, payload and water resistance. Take for example, Benimar who have moved to a 99% Wood-Free construction method, and Mobilvetta who have moved to 100% Wood-Free construction. Walls, floor and roof are constructed with high density XPS materials, which are extremely durable, lightweight, effective at insulating and come with a 5 year water ingress warranty.



When looking at different motorhomes, always check that fittings and installations are from a reputable supplier, in particular with regard to the plumbing and heating systems. You know you are in safe hands if a Truma heating system is factory installed. All our motorhome manufacturers only source from the very best of suppliers, so expect to see the latest of installations from proven suppliers with an excellent aftersales backup service.


Because choosing the right layout, is one of the most ‘if not THE MOST’ important considerations when purchasing a motorhome, we put our knowledge and experience to work on your behalf, helping you choose a motorhome that matches your needs, budget and lifestyle.  With a huge variety of new motorhomes in stock with different layouts including L-lounges, french beds, island beds, open plan and even the latest rear lounge/dropdown bed configurations, you can be confident of making the correct choice. 

Attention to detail

Manufactures who take pride in what they do endeavour to enhance the touring experience, safety and comfort for the user. Burstner excel in this area and attribute their success to their corporate vision of clever design, quality, skilled personnel and visionary thinkers. Pioneers in motorhome manufacturing, Burstner are constantly refining their design, adhering to ergonomic design principles, which optimise the working and living environment for ease of use, comfort and sense of wellbeing to the user.  It’s the small things that make a big difference, such as the fitting of 5 zone quality mattresses and careful selection of a high quality slatted base, installation of carefully chosen  windows and frames to reduce road noise, choice of wide framed chassis for enhanced driving comfort, contemporary styling and silent heating systems for a restful night.


While price is a very important part of the purchase, the bottom price doesn’t always reflect value for money. When buying a new motorhome, take for instance the Mobilvetta, Benimar or Majestic, it’s always worth considering what extras come as standard. The afore mentioned motorhomes have full NCC safety standard approval, and the world of extras including: Reversing Camera, Cruise Control, Solar Panel, Tracking system, External shower point, External gas point, Leather steering and gear stick, 16 Inch alloys, Spare wheel, Remis blinds, Touch screen DAB Radio and Microwave. With prices starting at €69,995 we feel this represents excellent value for money. The Burstner Harmony range comes with a comprehensive specification as standard, while you have the option to tailor extras according to your requirements on other Burstner models. 

After Sales Service

When driving away in your new motorhomes, it’s very important that you are in safe hands in terms of a strong dependable after sales service.
