    Considering buying a Dethleffs I7870 A class.
    Has anyone got one, had one, looked/considered buying one who can share any thoughts before I part with my hard earned?

    I've got the drivers licence, so no probs there.

    I was looking at Dethleffs A7871 coach built, but it's a dinette where as the I7870 has side settee's which suit us better.

    I had a look at a Burstner Elegance tag axle at the Newark show and liked it, but the seat back opposite the reclining settee was uncomfortable.
    So, whilst we're on it as well, Dethleffs or Burstner?
    Thanks!

    Hi Gavlad,
    went through the exact problem as you, both brilliant motorhomes, but for us we got a Hobby700 as it was the only one I could store at home!!! Personally I think the Dethleffs looks a nicer van, but either are very good.

    Thanks Tim22es
    How are you liking your Hobby 700? - is it LHD or RHD?
    A friend of mine had a 700 and has recently part ex'd it for a newer 750 Toscana And they love it.

    Hi Gavlad,
    we are loving it, just had 2weeks in Bordeaux an 1800 mile round trip and it was brilliant. Its 2003 rhd, with just under 30000 on the clock, it was a dream to use, would highly recommend it.
