    What a superb opportunity...

    Thanks for posting Jim.

    Another case of "If only" for me.

    My first MH was a T registration CF hightop, traded in at work in a scruffy condition, I resprayed it and mechanically overhauled it, we went miles together, the only problem I encountered was a stone in the radiator in Scotland, radiator removed by me and soldered the fins together to cure the leak, with a Stopleak added for safety, wonderful memories.!

    You could have cracked an egg into it to get home!:xdoh::imoutahere:

    I am looking to buy a 514 or 544 on retirement and will probably keep this one to visit vintage rallies and that sort of thing. I am throwing enough money at it at the moment so might as well keep it as well. In the meantime she will earn her keep - when refurbishment complete.

    My first was VW type 2 LHD 1972 LHD, Sadie the dog (named after a girl netball player at school I fancied) loved it. Used to lie on the shelf over the engine looking at whatever was following. Sorry drifting off again ....... nurse, nurse

    It looks great Jim but eye wateringly expensive but then again there was a type 2 VW on here for more IIRC.

    Hi Everyone,

    I'm new to the forum, new to motorhomes but not new to caravanning or classic cars and would welcome your advice.

    I'm going to view this Classic Hymer and know it's premium priced so what would you think it would be worth to a couple who plan to use it...

    What should I look for on the motorhoming side?

    Thanks & I'll report back,

    Cheers Tony

    Given your experience with classic cars and caravans I would think you are in a perfect position to know whether this gem is suitable for you or not.

    I live fulltime in my 1987 Hymer 660S and I love it.

    Do check everything works (although stuff like the heater and fridge are easier to fix than the modern stuff).

    Check all the blinds and flyscreens work.

    Good luck.
