    I'm thinking of getting one of these, anyone got any comments about them? Its on a Peugeot chassis. Particularly seeking the negatives. Anyone?
    Thanks,
    Brian.

    We had a similar model, an Elddis Autocirrus, 2006 model.

    All I will say is that the construction method of the body was not one of Explorer Group's finest achievements.
    Look hard for perforations in the fibreglass mouldings and check the sealant between the overcab moulding and the roof panel. It is the sealant you see on the roof which keeps out the water on these bodies, nothing else!
    Ours leaked like a sieve and we have seen several Autocirruses, Calypsos and Autostratuses, all of the same contruction method, with damp issues.
    Of course, this might be a good 'un, but do look carefully and NEVER trust the seller!
