    After doing a little research, you would have to spend upwards of 15k before you had a negative equity in that bus and if the 135BHP was not up to your power requirements the engine can be cheaply uprated to 177BHP. Why is it these things only come up for sale when am on my holidays :(.

    I find it nigh on impossible to imagine a 2 ton payload:cry:

    A proper beast !lol It looks really good condition for the year....love it! (but alas I'm a diabetic restricted to 3500kg)


    just out of interest how much would it cost to make this environmental zone compliant...

    That's why after getting my current MH that we love to bits!
    I have no interest in looking at other models, I am more than happy with what we have

    Am not sure about the environmental thing. Its says Euro 1. Mine has the same engine, but uprated to 177 BHP and that is Euro 2. Thankfully living up norf we do not have to put up with Boris's shenanigans.

    Its generally the case with German dealers on anything over 10 years old. By law in Germany they have to give a guarantee with vehicles sold to the public. I once bought a camper in Holland from a dealer under the same rules. It was 20 years old, but had only been used by the previous owner for a months holiday in France each year. It then went into a barn at the side of the house for the rest of the year. The van was vertualy new, but he could not sell it to the public without a guarantee.

    "
    "Option 2 – Pollution abatement equipment
    It may be possible to fit a vehicle with pollution abatement
    equipment, such as a particulate trap or a partial filter, which
    will reduce its particulate matter (PM) emissions to Euro 3
    standards or better. The cost of these traps or filters will vary
    but are likely to be in the region of £2,500 to £5,000. The
    vehicle then needs to be tested and issued with either an RPC
    or LEC to gain admission to the LEZ without being subject to
    the daily charge "

    From here ;

    not a lot of use though as euro 4+ is needed now. So unless it will meet that it is not worth doing. Personally I don't think it is worth doing anyway.

    Who would pay to convert to Euro 4 just to go into London or any city come to that. Using public transport is GREEN. BUSBY

    Are they sure its a manual gearbox cos the lever on the extreme left looks to me like an auto change for an Allison Auto Gearbox

    You can't always believe adverts, but this one actually claims both manual and auto depending which bit you read but look at the photos it's and auto.
