    Hi all,
    Narrowing down our search. Anyone had any experience of the Eddie accordo 125? Build quality leaks etc?

    Kind regards Mark and Sharon

    you can change the thread title, but only the originator can do that, from memory there is an option 'thread tools' or similar for you only at the top (y)

    10 year water ingress warranty. 6.0m, big garage, transverse bed but a bit snug. Not the best build quality. If I was buying British it would be a Bailey.

    I was pro German but I am rethinking that now having viewed a couple of newish Bailey motorhomes, keen pricing too.

    Thank you for all your responses. Still so hard to decide on which motorhome to go for. Regards sharon

    If your buying 2nd hand, remember the 10 year water ingress only applies to the FIRST owner.
    Second and subsequent owners only get 6 years (from date of first registration) and you need to make sure all the past hab checks have been carried out on time otherwise they won't transfer the warranty....

    We have the Accordo 105 which is a different layout to the 125. Build quality not great - lots of door handles and catches have come off, sink drain came adrift, battery charger packed up and shelves don't fit very well. All on a less than 3 year old van. Would not buy Elddis again. Continental van next time.

    Had a different Eldiss (Marquis variant) briefly.

    Shocking build quality.

    Got rid of it pretty quickly.

    Would never have another.

    I hired an Elddis once and some bits did fall off:D but I did quite like their L shaped lounge one, think it was a 150 felt vary spacious for a small van, we looked at a couple when we were buying but couldn't find one with a 2.2 engine so gave up(y)

    Would probably never buy a foreign motorhome other than maybe a rapido because the layouts just donot suit my style of touring ..so many good British built motorhomes are out there to choose from. Roy

    From an engineering point of view,all the motorhomes I have seen at the low end of the market are built by total knob ends, selftappers, sealant, badly cut woodwork and not even painted or treated. Staples, Lino, rough bits here and there, stupid catches and crap design on everything.

    I have a new build elddiss 135. I'm happy cos I got a great deal on it, paid the same as a secondhand one thru 3 years research and refusing to paid the ticket price. New base van no mot for 3 years, not been ragged, plastic underneath, no damp, 6 miles on the clock, and all of the above!

    Don't expect a top notch build IMHO, just go around and fix it yourself. Some complain that carpet poppers dont latch.... cupboard latches bit dodgey, easy fix ... what do you expect? things shrink over time, and this stuff easily fixable by the dealer, if that's what you want. just make sure big stuff works, fridge, heating hot water etc. and dont forget its a wood box wrapped in plastic or aluminium. As long as theres no damp, do not expect top quality and haggle if you dont think its up to scratch... Should not be of course for what you pay for it, but get it and enjoy it that's my take on it.

    Just my tuppence worth

    August and September we did a five week tour of Scotland sort of nw500 done anti clockwise . My van was totally shook up vibrated ,oo eer misses, proper rough roads really put to the test, i was gobsmacked every thing hab wise still worked .
    Its a big older Hymer built like a tank.
    Please spend your money wisely and think about whether you are going to be using your van all year round . Also look at the payload you have got available ie take the van to a weigh bridge before you buy.
