    hi all.

    i am considering purchasing a 1992 citroen based hymer 55 motorhome from germany.

    i have researched the import procedure and everything seems straight foward, i have viewed photos of the motorhome over the internet and all looks in exeptional condition.
    the only thing that is niggling me is the fact that it is a citroen! it looks exactly the same as fiat, peougeot, or talbot, but because i have hardly ever seen a citroen motorhome at the back of my mind iam thinking why? arnt they any good? as i dont hardly see any of them?
    am i being paranoid and worrinying for nothing? also, is buying a left hand drive motor home, in this case a citroen motorhome, a sensible thing to do? ie, i dont want to end up with a motorhome iam going to struggle getting parts for, or, have to pay over the odds to get parts for?
    also in motorhome terms, is this a half decent model does any body know? - its a coatchbuilt 1992 citroen based 4 berth hymer 55 2.5 deisel 108km(68k ish miles) and in stunning condition? for sale at approx £8000.it would also be very useful to know weather in any ones opinion that if the worst came to the worst, would i get at least my money back here in england if it turned out that i didnt like it for some reason?do lhd motorhomes sell ok here?
    i really would appreciate your advise as iam planning to go to germany in the next week or so to buy it and i want to be 100% sure iam buying the right thing.
    thank you all so much.

    A quick Google for >>Hymer +Citroen<< turns up quite a few and a quick glance shows that it looks like you are getting a good deal. You will take a hit on resale when you sell a left hooker here, but with what you save on importing its just swings and roundabouts. have a good trip to Germany and do post some pics in the gallery when you get her home.:BigGrin:

    Damp is your biggest enemy.

    The rest of the vehicle should be fine if it been well maintained.
