    Hi as a newbie motorhomer,I think you could be getting a lot of questions from me !!! We pick up our Elnagh Doral 112 ,on a 1999 ford transit 2.5td chassis. I'm been looking on the net and cant seem to find anybody else with a similar vehicle,have I picked a turkey of a motorhome ,or a dinosaur that is completly extinct ??? Their are none for sale (except the one we have bought) and I can find no mention of them anywhere.Before I pay for it can anybody give me a thumbs up on this six birth van,or should I get my old tent out the dustbin and hide in the corner?
    Cheers Nick (the worrier)

    Are you buying from a dealer or is it private?

    Transits of that age apart from rust can be a good buy, plenty of spares available. Don't expect to break any speed records though, but can if they have been looked after be a good buy.

    I am buying this from a dealer.And as far as I can see there is no rust on the usuall areas .As for speed records,I think the idea is to slow down a bit so very happy to plod along and hold up a few of the speed freaks on our wonderful country roads.
    Cheers Nick

    Who is the dealer? maybe someone on here has some feedback on them?, I think the main thing to look out for on any motorhome let alone a quite old one is damp, so make sure you check carefully for damp and if you are still unsure don't be afraid to get an independent professional to take a good look at it:thumb:
