    Get yourself up to the Stratford motorhome show this week, loads to see and you may find what you want.


    Good luck with whatever you buy

    Have a Good Look Round

    Hi
    We moved on from a caravan to a MH and we knew that we really wanted a fixed bed and a separate shower. We'd had enough of changing the seating area into a bed every night. That was our starting point then we looked around loads at the big dealers called Brownhills to narrow it down to a few models, then searched for those for sale. Consider things like turn around captain seats, do you want to seat 4 at the table, do you want to not have to climb on the roof for your chairs - if not you'll ned a decent sized garage. A powerful motor to pull a decent sized van, do you plan going to hot places - you'll want to consider air con in habitation as well as drivers cab. do you want an oven and grill?
    Just sold our - for the price you wanted to pay too. Should get a lovely van for that price. Have a look at the milage, as less miles sually means the beds haven't been used that much either.
    Don't be put off by upholstery, as it usually only costs around £1000 to have it re-done and if you're buying privately or from a dealer, you will knock them down anyway.
    Happy searching

    Not sure from your description whether you want a double rear bed over garage, or bunk bed. If the latter, this will tend to mean that the garage is quite narrow.

    Here is an option for a double rear bed.
