The Marquis dealer network is best known for retailing motorhomes and has built a reputation for its dealer specials in particular. So when Marquis began selling caravans at its three largest branches in 2010, dealer special tourers were soon to follow. 

Initially the dealership retailed Swift and Coachman vans but for the 2012 season a range of five Majestic models was launched in conjunction with Elddis, based on the entry-level Xplore range. However, Marquis has treated its Majestics to extras more often seen on mid-market tourers. 

Standard features include alloy wheels, a stabiliser, external barbecue and 230V sockets, a spare wheel, loose lay carpets and a CD player. The graphics have also been freshened up.

We tested a six-berth Majestic 506 featuring a fixed triple-bunk layout, based on the Elddis Xplore 506 – is it spacious enough for lively children on a break? We put it to the test.
