    Seems a bit  excessive to me, Peter. But it does depend on what else is being done, to be fair.

    You’re right that it is ESSENTIAL to have the timing belt changed and NOT just on a mileage-covered basis either – time between changes is important too, irrespective of mileage covered, a point missed by many people when motorhomes can do such little mileages sometimes.

    Have you considered having an “awayday” to somewhere with a garage that can give a competitive quote?  If the job’s done in a day, go into town while you’re waiting for it, then maybe have an overnight somewhere nice nearby?

    But £1,200 does seem a lot. What does everyone else here think?
