As we enter February, one of the coldest months, everyone is gearing up and preparing for the new season. But there are a lot of us who are still planning on some winter getaways despite the sub zero temperatures, one of those a Marquis Leisure who's latest model will make winter seem like a bad memory as they pass some extreme weather testing.
Certain parts of the UK have been hit quite badly by the snow over the past week or so, nothing like the arctic vortex in American where they are seeing temperatures dropping as low as -46, but people are still camping and caravanning and making the most of their vans.
So if you are in the UK and still want to make the most out of your leisure vehicle you are going to want to make sure that your van has a Grade III classification.
For those who may not know what Grade III classification is its the highest standard for both insulation and heating and confirms that a vehicle is capable of maintaining a comfortable internal temperature, even down to an external temperature of -15°C, to provide the perfect climate 365 days a year.
With certain areas facing minus temperature weather having a motorhome that can stand up to mother nature will make the world of of difference on those chilly frost covered mornings.
One such model that has recently gone through grade testing and has walked away with top marks is the Benimar Primero range.
Benimar motorhomes are the UK's largest selling imported product sold exclusively by Marquis Leisure across a 12 branch network throughout the UK. They have now launched the brand new Primero range for the UK market.
We have stayed in quite a few Benimar models and they really are built for luxury living and the Primero is no different.
The new Primero range comes with a whole wave of features that a very competitively priced and are aimed towards families. Being under 6 meters long should also appeal to the younger audience who want to venture further for longer.
So how does one test a leisure vehicle to ensure they can stand -15 temperatures? You pop over and see Truma who just happen to have a climate chamber test facility.
Truma's climate chamber has been used since the 1970s to help temperature check leisure vehicles to ensure they can survive the harshest of temperatures.The chamber uses thermal imaging cameras to to allow manufacturers to maximise heating comfort within their vehicles.
The Primero flew through the testing with top marks meaning every new 2019 model excels in any environment to deliver luxurious year round touring comfort, which is great news for customers wanting to travel in any weather conditions.
The Primero may be able to hold up against extreme cold but it is also the perfect all year round motorhome. So if it's horribly cold outside or blistering sunshine the Primero will have you touring in comfort and style.
