    I have a Burstner Solano....and also we had one before. Love the Burstners and we have always been pleased with them. We bought our second Solano in Nov 2013 but sadly had very little use as my Husband then took ill. I am alone now and wondering about getting something smaller....as I have never driven it. I know it's not the model you are looking at ,....but don't think you would go far wrong with the make. Hope that helps a little.

    I owned a Burstner. Not your model but they are a quality build. You have to own one to appreciate the difference. Everyone naturally wants to think that their expensive motorhome is one of the better makes but whilst not the best, Burstner are well built with quality materials and finish.

    We purchased a 2007 Delfin T821 in January find it a very well built.
    We purchased a new solano in 2007 which was olso well built but changed for layout reasons to a Bessacar in 2012! Big mistake! So have now gone back to a German built motorhome for a better build quality and winterised.

    Sorry to here of your loss. It is nice to see you back on a forum and hope you can start motorhoming again.
    Just remember if the wing mirrors go through the rest of the motorhome is not so much of a problem.

    Hi Thankyou
    Well I decided to change the motorhome for a smaller Burstner Travel Van and I love it. First time out in it last week and I drove to Norfolk and back.

    Sorry to hear your problems Briarose and glad you are now on the up again. Hope to meet you some day.

    I have a Burstner t680 .... I struggle with the width sometimes in the narrow lanes but engine wise it has not given me any problems so far ...and I must be honest I probably don't look after it as I should as I don't understand engines.

    Mine has an internal step and I would not have a van with a step again... visitors are forever falling over when leaving the van. I am really pleased with the diesel consumption so far but it can lose power on very steep hills just out of the blue. This has only happened a couple of times but a bit scary when in line of traffic. I have read other Burstner owners say the same thing.

    A Fun member has the Burstner elegance and it is LOVELY and he is thrilled to bits with it.

    Sorry not same model but it might help a bit. :)

    Had a t700 delfin auto, great van,made a big mistake and traded it in for autotrail which we sold within a year of purchase and went back to German, same layout and love the German quality.

    We've got a Delfin T 680 Performance and the engine is brilliant (3 litre Renault) loads of power and around 27 mpg when driven sensibly. Very happy with the build quality of the van too, but as @movan says, the change in floor level does catch out the unwary. The only problem we've had was with the eBox control unit which wasn't a cheap repair but I'm not sure what unit they fit in the T 715.

    Yes, the E box cost over £300 for a new one ... fortunately mine was still under warranty ... there is a place in Colwyn Bay apparently that repairs them should anyone need it.
