    Hi and Welcome.
    Good luck with your motorhome search. Don't part with a penny until you've seen the vehicle and its paperwork. Don't be taken in by any promises of delivery and money back if you're not satisfied. And check for damp. That's sum total of my knowledge, in afraid.

    Hello upload_2015-7-11_17-17-56.png

    Put "swift rio" into the search box (top right of this page) - it's been discussed a few times.

    I really liked the idea of the back door and also it's quite narrow compared with other vans, but when we went to see one we rejected the layout because we use our van for long tours and it seems much more suited to a week or two. The overhead lockers are quite shallow. The 4-berth gives you much more worksurface in the kitchen than the 2-berth. It has a transverse bed, which may (or may not) be a problem for whoever's stuck against the rear door.
    Depends on how you're going to use it really.

    Good luck and happy camping!

    Hello welcome to fun, if you are new to motorhoming altogether I would spend the best £10 you will probably spend and become a full member of the forum, for that you can ask as many questions as you like, use the search facility and get generous discounts. Good luck with your search but read as much as you can there have been a few new users on a fun lately who have been scammed, far better to ask the questions first than if things have gone wrong.
