    No good me looking at Linda's stock nice as it is because I want to buy in the States and tour for a while before deciding if I bring it home or not. Also I only like diesel engines can't get my head around petrol.

    She does have a couple of really nice Georgie Boys though if anyones looking :thumb:

    Wow! - Some of those prices are amazing aren't they? - and I like the idea of buy/tour/ship home

    But

    What's the price of shipping a 32' RV to UK from the US?

    What are the additional costs incurred when you get home?

    Cheers

    Dave

    I think JSW will agree the problem is you really need to narrow your search down to one or two states an America it's so vast.

    Different if your buying new as you probably have thrashed the price out a bit and you know the condition of the bus before you get there.

    So many view their buses in differing ways and it a long way to go for a badly described dog.

    Some good buys are'nt there I've just checked the £ / $ and a $100k = £47k buy a hell of a 2nd hand diesel pusher RV for that at the moment.
    Hope its still similar in January

    :Cool: Costs around $3500 to ship.

    Additional costs:-

    10% Duty on the Purchase Price+ the Shipping.

    Then:-

    17.5% on the Duty + Purchase Price + Shipping.

    Thanks for the info

    so $100,000 for the RV plus (say) $4,000 to ship

    Plus 10% of $104,000 = $114,400

    plus 17.5% of $114,400 = $134,420

    converted to £ = £64,000 (ish)

    Still a bit rich for my blood but I can see the temptation alright - especially right now with the great exchange rate...

    Thinks - I must go and but some more bits for the Harley :Wink:

    :Cool: That would be for an RV costing £100,000 in the UK. :Wink:
