    Hi all

    Thought I would try and get some advice on a potential Arapaho purchase that I have agreed a price on.

    Looking at an auto SE 59/2010 vehicle and wondered if any other members had experience with this model?


    Thanks
    Michael

    May sound silly but just ensure you have a license to drive it..
    It's becoming a bit more common for people to start looking at vans and not realising laws changed in 1997...
    If you passed a test before then you are ok.

    Autotrails have had a few damp / water ingress issues, especially on offside wall behind drivers seat by the dinette area and around rear lockers.. Pay for a habitation check.. I know it's only a 2010 but there are 1 year old Autotrails with these problems

    We owned a new 2006 Arapaho. Only for about 9 months, but in that time it didn't put a foot wrong. Build quality was great. (y)

    I saw a 2006 Arapaho on a site last weekend.

    It certainly looked like it was well made. The bodywork was immaculate for what is now an 8 year old van.
