Dear Practical Motorhome Editor,

In June of this year my Hymer motorhome was damaged extensively on the passenger side, when a lorry door opened as I was driving past. I thought it may need a new side fitting.

My insurance company arranged to have the work done by DMR Motorhome Body Repair Specialists of Harworth, Doncaster, who collected my van promptly a week later.

All through the process I was kept informed on progress via email. It was returned to me on July 25th.

The quality of the work is A1. DMR have even done things for me that were not on the insurance claim at no extra cost. The whole side was painted rather than just the area around the repairs. The extra work has put £1000’s on my vans’s value.

Hopefully, I will not have another accident, but I would have no hesitation in asking that DMR be used again.

I thoroughly recommend them.

Hi Mike,

I emailed a few lines to Jane Cottam at MMM and I hope they find a place for them in the letters page. (See below.) Again, very many thanks for the help that you and Ray gave and for the wonderfully professional job: I’m delighted with the result.

(PS: hope you haven’t forgotten my paint!)

Kind regards



Dear Jane,

Being a confirmed Caravaner, I hesitate in contacting your prestigious magazine; however, I have something to share with your members and would welcome a few lines in your “letters” section.

I was unfortunate enough to damage my van when on holiday in France. Although cosmetic, no self respecting Caravaner or Motor Home owner could ignore this sort of damage. My concern was that I had been led to believe that this sort of denting and scoring in the side of a caravan or motor home could only be effectively repaired by removing the entire side and replacing it: a very expensive option, with no guarantee as to the water tight integrity of the repaired vehicle.

I was fortunate to be put in touch with Ray and Mike from DMR Motorhome Body Repair Specialists, based in Doncaster and I was delighted when they said they could restore the damage without replacing the side and have the van looking as good as new: and that’s exactly what they did!

If any of your readers find themselves in a similar dilemma, I would strongly suggest they contact Ray or Mike on 01302 711377 email:

I’m absolutely delighted with the standard of their work; the quick turn around time and the very reasonable cost. I hope this information may be use to your readers.

Dear MMM,
through your pages may we recommend wholeheartedly DMR Motorhome Body Repair Specialists at Harworth, Doncaster. Our motorhome had the misfortune to have a scrape along a wall and so needed repair to both the bodywork and grey skirt. Also an outside locker needed attention to the paintwork. This work was carried out by DMR to the highest standard. They even made parts where repair was not possible.

As well as excellent workmanship their customer service was second to none. If you are ever in the unfortunate position to have a tweak or major accident with your motorhome contact Mike on 01302 711377 or, web site –
You won’t regret it! Hazel and Alan Sharp, Sheffield
