    I currently have a 2.8 JTD Ducato, 2001 with 73K on the clock & no issues, it drives really well.The habitation side of things is great as well, layout is fine the conversion was done in 2007 so relatively recent Bodywork is also good. Now here's my question - when the Pension lump sum drops on my doormat (yes lucky me) do I just give it to the wife never to be seen again (the money that is or just maybe the wife as well when she sees how much it is)or quickly invest in a newer model bearing in mind that I want to do the whole european travel thing & want reliability over the coming years.
    Secondly I will probably be looking at a PVC again & wonder what your thoughts are about the current crop of base vehicles ie: what would you go for?

    Personally I would keep your existing van.

    Enjoy your retirement:thumb:

    I agree with Chris.

    Why change a van you love so much for a newer one you don't know?

    The money this would cost you could be better spent on pies.

    It's every man's dream, the new model wife, but few can afford it.

    I'd stick with the one you've got.

    And the van, it's more what you do with it. Use it a year, then decide.
