    Hi All, This is my first post so thought I would tell of my situation. We have owned 3 motorhomes and a couple of years ago decided a caravan would be better due to no tax, mot etc and it sitting on the drive for most of the time. We bought a brand new caravan and still had change from the sale of our last motorhome (I.H. Tio, Great van) All was going well and we have just got back from our second trip to Portugal with the caravan and we where very happy, that is until last week when some horrible theiving ******* came onto our drive in the middle of the night and stole our caravan and all the bits and bobs and personal stuff inside. It had wheelclamp, hitchlock and motormover engaged as well. Needless to say we are very upset. On the bright side, we are insured and we now realise that had we stuck with the motorhome we wouldnt have lost it so easy. Anyway we are now on the lookout for a Hymer or Pilote A class. As we dont know much about either vehicle so any advice tips or general thoughts would be great. I look forward to chatting with you all. Regards. Gary

    Ba******, aren't they? You couldn't have put much more anti-theft on it.

    Welcome to Fun.

    We bought a Hymer B544 as our first van and I can't think of much we would change.

    Welcome to Fun take your time always more for sale than people with the money no matter what the dealer tells you about them being sold as soon as they come in
