Fitting in HALSTEAD – Pullingers Motorhomes
Pullingers is a family run business established in 1993 in a convenient location, offering a 3,000 sq.foot heated showroom for comfortable viewing of any prospective new motorhome of your choice. We like to encourage our customers to take their time when browsing the vehicles, indeed it is possible that during your visit you will be be assisted by Barry or Jane Pullinger the owners, who like to try to keep as involved as possible in all sales orientated aspects. We attempt to keep around 50 new and used vehicles permanently on show and we hold a good selection of used vehicles as well as new products from Dethleffs and Sunlight from Germany, Pilote and Le Voyageur from France. We feel this represents the best quality and design flair from Europe and gives us the opportunity to offer customers exceptional value for money, good choice and most importantly user friendly reliable vehicles with Support that comes from major manufacturers with many years` experience.
We are now in our 12th season with Dethleffs (Germany`s Number 1 single factory producer of Motor Caravans) and our experience is way beyond the expectations we had when we agreed to take on the franchise. The vehicles are delivered directly to our door by transporter from Southern Germany and the build quality and after sales support can only be described as superb. Quite frankly the best we have ever experienced in our many years in the business. The sales have also exceeded our expectations, demonstrating the superb value for money alongside the incredible build quality. This is certainly a “must see” product for any potential purchaser of a Motor Caravan.
We are also now managing to obtain a few used Dethleffs vehicles so it’s always worth a phone call to see if we have a late used model to tempt you with if the new one is just out of reach.
At Pullingers is the exciting new Sunight range, all now based on the industry leading Fiat Ducato, offering unrivalled German build quality and attention to detail at low prices. A choice of Sunlight low profile Motorhomes will be available to view at all times to view at our premises.
Pullingers have now been working with Pilote since 2013, over the last 5 years Pilote have revamped the whole range, this has helped improve the build quality and the design of the vehicles to suit the UK market. This has seen the Pilote’s popularity in the UK increase massively as it offer excellent build quality at a good price. These offer a great alternative to the Dethleffs product with some unique designs.
Le Voyageur is a Premium Class product that is part of the Pilote group, built in a separate factory the Le Voyageurs offer unrivalled finish and build quality. Offereing vehicles built on Fiat/Alko Chassis, Iveco Daily and even MAN 12T chassis they offer an almost bepoke product. Now in our third year with Le Voyageur we’re raising the awareness of the high quality product in the UK. Le Voyageurs will always be stocked at Pullingers.
