    Do any members have either a Rapido 990..

    Or a Niesmann Bischoff any model "Arto"..

    If you have how has it been for you and what if any problems have you found.. ?

    Looking at both, either new or a year or so old..

    Thanks.. :thumb:

    Didn't someone on here have a rogue N+B that electrocuted itself ????

    High price does not guarantee perfection.

    If you are spending that much we saw a van this size where the back dropped down and a FIAT 500 reversed out.

    Can't help Mo, but if you are looking at that type of van don't rule out the Burstner Elegance.

    A seriously nice bit of kit:thumb:

    Sorry,,,,, don't know how to do chat... :Sad::Blush:

    Do PM`s if you like..

    Don't worry me, who see`s the answers as long as it`s not belittling any dealer..

    We are thinking of a new one or perhaps a few months to 1 year old at most..

    That way the original buyer has paid the full VAT, and any problems should have been sorted...

    Thanks..

    That's true

    Problem is that with the average age of motorhome owners, not only have they paid the VAT but wet the bed :BigGrin:

    arto rapido

    Hi Mo
    We bought a 2005 Niessman & Bischoff Arto 69 P last year with 14,500 miles on the clock.

    We are very happy with the quality of the finishes & the layout. Also using in the Winter, the insulation.

    We're in the Vendee at the moment & had what we thought was an over heating problem, but it seems like a Temperature Sensor issue ( looks like a common Fiat fault).

    There is a cracking N&B for sale at Euro Commercials Cardiff with a MAN 4.5 engine but overpriced with VAT.

    Travelworld always seem to have a good selection & we've found them good to deal with having bought two previous Motorhomes from them.

    Hope this is some help
