    Any other owners out there :thumb: top van and now that we have settled into it, think it was the best choice, looked at the Argos for a few months but got a great deal that we could not turn down:BigGrin:

    Anyone else got an Elegance and want to pass on all the learning points, or problems I have yet to find?:Eeek:

    hi we were originally going for the elegance but opted for the performance instead
    as there's just the two of us normally we really didn't need the front over bed.
    the layouts are virtually the same the only problem we had was the lack of lighting around the rear so i had a couple of halogen strips fitted and that cured it.
    great van though good choice:Smile:

    We have an Elegance i681 which is a two berth. This is a great layout for a luxury two berth. We have looked at many other A Class vans but have not seen anything to compare with the space and layout. The shower and end toilet is superb and you can easily seat 6+. We've had the usual teething problems but on the whole a very good outfit.

    In view of the trouble with Fiat chassis before buying would check the state of play regarding transmission problems. This a long running saga for about 2 years now, and still not finally resolved.

    Just a friendly warning.

    What I was warning about and getting you to read was:-

    Just so you know.I myself went for a Ford this time in view of the problems and so far have been happy with it.

    I haven't got a Burstner but I do have a Hymer Elegance, wow what a wonderful van, so well laid out and the spec is MASSIVE, the thought and detail that has gone into that van makes so many other vans look peanuts.

    Ugly looking beastie from the outside but the inside...................

    (Not trying to sell it, just an honest comment on a van that really makes me drool)
