Not on our site more a discount on this year's fees decking etc. Always worth a try though. Pembertons are well thought of. Good luck and welcome to the site.

No harm in trying Amos, the worst they can say is no
Biggles is, I think, the worlds best bargainer, always asks for a discount on anything we buy ... and more often than not gets one.
However, when we bought our new pemberton warwick last year there was no room for manoeuvre on the price. What we did get though was a reduction in terms of site fees, connection charges, etc.
We have been totally delighted with our Warwick

Hi there Amos and welcome to the forum. As Treetopper has pointed out the VAT on new vans comes into force this month (I believe it may have been yesterday the 6th) however you may be lucky enough to find a dealer who is prepared to negotiate a deal where they pay the VAT. No harm in asking I suppose.
The trouble is that the nearly-new vans (those that are a couple of years old for example) will now become a much better buy as the van will have lost its depreciation but also the VAT will have already been paid. Have you looked to see if there are any 2nd hand Pembertons about?

I would think the only way you'd get a discount off a Pemberton is, if the Site or Dealer you're buying off has put a massive mark up on the RRP.
