    Hi there all - happy Friday!! :)

    We are still to buy our first motorhome and are therefore very inexperienced (not to mention a little scared!!). We have been looking and researching for a while now but are seriously considering a 2009 Autocruise Starblazer which has just 'cropped up' at our local dealer. It's over budget at £33k but the mileage is low and the layout seems ideal... we have 2 dogs to accommodate. It also appears to be in very good condition. Does anyone have any knowledge or experience of this model/year? We are a bit confused about the pre/post Swift issue???? Many thanks in advance! o_O

    We looked at buying a Starblazer large locker but went for an A Class N & B Arto instead . Seems quite a high price ?

    Thanks both. Yes, the dealership is small and local with a very good reputation.

    I've done a bit work on an autocruise starspirit and starblazer..
    One was 2004and other2008 I think..
    Both were well put together vans.. felt solid and better fittings than a lot of newer vans about today..

    Ours was a 2007 and was a great truck to be honest. Loved it to bits. Bed layout was really comfy although awkward step layout! The steps up and down from it were narrow and difficult to use when nature calls in the middle of the night! We are old folk! :smirk:
    Our garage was converted to look after two dogs by the previous owner. Really good job they had done too. I think the dogs were better looked after than themselves to be honest?
    Obviously goes without saying...Check for damp behind the drivers seat and under the drivers side bench seat too. Amongst other well known areas.
    Ours was a bit of a bugger and let us down badly regardless of a new Habitation Cert!:wasntme: Stressed out kev somewhat! :hot:
    As previously mentioned by Wanderer..a little high on price so be careful.
