Motorhome manufacturer Auto-Trail has launched a new restoration service to mark its 40th anniversary.
Known as Auto-Trail Refresh, owners can return their motorhome to the Auto-Trail pant where technicians offer a bespoke restoration service to suit all budgets and requirements.
Repair centre manager Clare Osborne said: “We are delighted to be able to help our customers with the launch of Auto-Trail Refresh and have already had lots of interest in the service.
“Over time, motorhomes lose their shine, get damaged and need a bit of TLC.
“By investing in the upkeep of your motorhome, you can prolong its lifespan and add to its value.”
The Grimsby-based motorhome firm showcased its restoration capabilities on a 2008 Auto-Trail Apache owned by the Wises.
Restoration work undertaken on the vehicle included damage repair, a paintwork refresh and a polish, and the couple were over the moon when they came to collect.
Mrs Wise said: “It is absolutely stunning. We brought it in to have some maintenance done on it and got offered this service.
“I would advise anybody to have it done because this looks like a new van.
“I am so impressed, I’m so pleased and I can’t thank them enough.”
Auto-Trail restoration services available depend on the individual vehicle, age and condition.
DID YOU KNOW: The new launch reintroduces a service which it was known for prior to its first motorhome builds. When it launched into dedicated new vehicle production back in 1982, original owners Bill Boasman and Barry Holmes were providing caravanning repairs and conversions from their Immingham base. They ventured into coachbuilt motorhomes before a couple of buy-outs saw the latest chapter emerge at the state-of the-art facility at Europarc.
