    As some of you will know I have been running two motorhomes now for some time, my old Tiffin RV and a VW coachbuilt. Have just returned from a tour of France and Spain in the VW and have visited places that I would normaly miss with the RV. So am in a bit of a delema as I have decieded to sell one of the campers,or maybe both and replace with somthing in between. Having visited a well known dealer at the weekend am more confused than ever as I cant find anything better than what I have. The only camper I think would suit my neads is maybe the Hymer 660s or 694. The problem with these is that they are not that much shorter than my beloved Tiffin. So am back to square one,dont know what to do...keep both and replace with somthing that is much the same as I have, or sell one and keep one...but WHICH ONE.

    Jot down some pros and cons for each option over a few days as you think of them. That might help you decide what is best for you.

    Hi Dave
    If we were thinking of going away from our set-up-- I would try and talk you into selling the Tiffin----to me----- it's an ideal long term travelling vehicle IMHO.
    I still think it's ugly though:Sad::Sad::Rofl1:
    How much would gain by changing ???????????
    Remember ''the devil you know''
    I hope you make the best decision

    BTW-- glad your recent trip went OK:thumb::thumb:

    Don't listen to them ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^Dave.....

    way way to sensible.

    Life's most difficult decisions should be carried out by the following......


    Toss a coin, heads for one tails for other.

    Ok so now down to one van,,,,, Toss again, heads for the winner of the last tails for a Hymer.

    Problem solved, and if it goes wrong you can just blame your skills as a tosser :Rofl1::Rofl1:

    Good luck and welcome home, ps Ill miss the little VW going round Crewe

    Why not advertise both for sale at prices you would be delighted to receive.

    If one sells keep the other.... If they both sell buy another one and if neither sells it means you are not meant to change yet!

    There is a very simple answer - just weld them together and take them both with you :RollEyes::RollEyes::RollEyes::RollEyes::RollEyes::Doh::Doh::Doh::Doh:

    Good idea...I did once buy a VW T4 poptop with that in mind but I think the LT is just a bit to heavy as a toad.

    What about renting them out instead of selling them.

    Plenty more shows coming up and you may see something you do actually like that better suits your needs.

    Within your pros and cons also look at destinations you would like to visit in the future and how suitable each vehicle is for the country and the length of trip you want to take.

    Good luck on whatever you decide

    Keep the RV, sell the eurobox and buy a decent toad.

    Why do you need it all the time? Is it a daily work runner? or just for use in smaller places?

    You could always retire the RV and go for a 5th wheel, which would give you RV comfort, and a daily runner/small village visiting vehicle in one package.

    A c-class can the be taken instead for more local or size restrictive holidays.

    So your saying an RV is the same as a caravan :Eeek: :Rofl1:

    Anyone who owns an RV will tell you the cost of the fuel is offset by a very long way for all the space and comforts you get with the big lump dragging you along. :thumb:

    :hardhat::hardhat:
    Any one full timing then yes a toad is good but in my mind the van gets us from A to B and all our running around without loosing the benefits of the van-loo,cooker etc- that I want to use during the day :thumb:If a delivery van can get there so can I :Rofl1::BigGrin::Wink:You loose that in a car :Doh:
