We bought our camping car second hand from one of the outlets mentioned, and had nothing but problems since day one.  The promised CT was done but not all the work stated as must be done was completed, when challenged they huffed and puffed, wouldnt reply to emails, and downright lied.  We took it back and demanded that various work was done, and when we collected it we assumed it had been done but when examined it  closely they had left us with huge holes in the exhaust.. Again no answer to emails etc.  After much ado I reported them to their head office, and I was told to have the work done locally.  They authorised the work but the garage would not wait to get their money and demanded that we paid it.  In all the car was off the road for a month and a half, and they refused to extend the 3 months guarantee.  Just after the guarantee ran out we drove to England, and the day we arrived the whole cabin electrics went, so we had a holiday with a tankful of water we couldnt get at and going to bed when it got dark!  If any one wants to know who they are you are welcome to message me and I will tell you, I dont think Anglo info would like it if I stated the name.  But for goodness sake dont buy from them!

We went to a couple of local camping car sales places and didn't find them very helpful but we did find one on leboncoin locally after a lot of searching.

It never seems very easy to buy anything in France!

Bonjour Caravaning, Brittcars and Camping Car Josephine etc. all have used vehicles not just new, go along and have a look, we saw lots of second hand when we started looking.  It's not always obvious, they tend to put the new ones t the front of their display. If they don't have what you want, tell them what you are looking for they will let you know if they have what you want coming in on partex.  You could also look on Leboncoin for private sales.
