    We had a 2006 Autocirrus.
    It was well screwed together although we had water ingress problems which took the Dealer and Elddis nearly a year to sort out, badly!
    I finished the job properly myself!:Angry:

    Despite that, we had few problems, but don't buy if you are into camping off-grid or in more extreme winter conditions. The Elddis range generally has titchy underslung water tanks.
    Elddis is a brand we feel more is best suited to being used like a caravan, pitched on a site with good facilities.
    I do admit though, that most owners I speak to are very happy with theirs and they are a lot of MH for the money.

    I'm digging my trench now, in anticipation of a bombardment from happy Elddis owners!!!!:BigGrin:

    I have a 2011 Autoquest 145. There are some niggling things with it, the sink above the toilet is very cheaply designed, my 4 yr old daughter just pulled on it and it came away from the hinges, that was bad enough but the drain pipe came away from the plug hole and I am still flumoxxed on how to re-attach it as the sink is all sealed and I can't find any way into it and my fingers aren't long enough.

    Overall though, for the entry price of £33,500 for a 4 berth then it is good value.

    Oh, I did have a very embarrassing moment when I had to get towed out of a soft standing pitch by a kind caravan driver in his 4x4, off road ability is very poor :)

    we have a 2006 autoquest 130 and must say we are very happy with it, as said it is slightly cheaper build and has smaller tanks but not a problem for us. We use ours all year round and no problem having small tanks, we also use ours for wildcamping lasting 10 days in Scotland without hook up and no problems. Yes some things id like to be better but would i want to pay twice the price for them.

    I have an Eldiss 200 which I love. When I first bought it needed to do some small fixing inside (tightening screws) etc. The main job I needed to do was to lengthen the ladders so that when I climbed to bed the ladders were at an angle and not 90 deg. upwards, making it impossible to get down out of bed.

    I love it even though it isn't one of the more expensive mh's. I have friends with Eldiss' who full time in them and they too are happy.:Smile:
