I have found this on ebay-Item number: 120444694342 and would welcome anyone's opinion.
Hi looks a nice RV, his ad is a bit misleading, MPG 18MPG, no way, around 10 is more likely. He says can be driven on a car licence, its on a Ford chassis so it may have been down rated, if you are interested in it, you need to take it to a weighbridge with the fuel, water and gas tanks full to see what payload is left. And if that would leave you enough for the added weight of a gas con. if you wanted one.
Just because it was registered in 05 over here, doesn't mean it wasn't registered in the USA before 05, so something else to check. Service history, with regular servicing they run forever, anything less and they can be trouble.
Pricewise it seems very good, which always makes me suspicious.
PS just looked on the winnie site, they where produced on an 18000lb chassis so it been downrated. A minor point they list the water tank as 72 US gallons, not 100.

many thanks for taking the time to look olley, I will take on board what you have said
Hi telma, just gone back to 2002 the first year of production and the only option was the workhorse chassis, but still 18,000lb (8,164kg) Why its been downrated to 6,800kg instead of 7,500kg is beyond me.
If I can help anymore :thumb:
From what your telling me I have my doubts about this RV:Sad:
It would appear that he bought this vehicle only 6 weeks ago !!!
I guess I will just have to be patient and keep looking.
Once again many thanks for your help.
as they are looking to 'buy' a bike, car, motorhome, 4X4 etc as ebay wont allow a PX it strikes me he/she is a dealer.
and the fact you say he/she only bought the RV 6 weeks ago would confirm this.
looking at the link from ollie it would appear that the width of a winnie 30B is 8ft 6inch, as the maxi width for U K appears to be 2.55 mtrs that would make all this range illegal in uk ? ? UGH there is a lot of these on the road sunseeker etc
have you thought of a 5er? saves using a toed . get the right ones you can carry small m,bikes in garage/boot. could easily ft in one like mine n its only 20ft trailer . total 30 ft.
