    We have a Dethleffs "Magic Edition" and find it amazing in all aspects. The Globus won the best in Class in a recent magazine, and Dethleffs have a good reputation for quality German build, but not sure of the model you`re looking at, so do all the normal checks and ask the dealer any question that you have on your mind, and then, like all things, it`s a matter of choice. Dethleffs, is first class In my opinion !!

    Best of Luck, and hope you enjoy your travels.:thumb:

    Hi

    Is this the one at Lowhdams in Gunthorpe. We looked at it about a month ago, it is a very nice van for the money. The only thing we did not like was the leather look vinyl trim, other than that an awesome van. There is also another for sale at Edgehill in Mansfield same year but registered and £5k less.

    Good Luck

    Hi gunnergetya

    We've just sold our 2007 6971 SG (it goes on Friday)

    Dethleffs conversion has been rock solid, bone dry & fault free, plus the vehicle is real eye candy, you can't ask for more than that.
