    Hi all, looking for first motorhome. No real requirements other than full shower room and cassette toilet. budget between £3500-£5000 . I've trawled ebay and autotrader etc, and its very hit and miss.

    The closer to Derby are, the better :)

    JUST BE VERY AWARE.
    Never part with any cash up front or deposits.. The web is full of scams.. !!

    I saw something close to me on Facebook I will see if I can find details..

    Just wanted to say good luck with your hunt.

    Be aware that there are a lot of scams around and never part with ANY money until you have done all the checks. A genuine seller will be more than happy for you to bring a friend along to look with you and for you to do the checks that need doing.

    If it appears to be too good to be true it probably is.

    Yes I know that , my fault , didn't check them before I put the link up , as there are usually some genuine bargain motorhomes in the advertiser.

    Adibranch... You will find this site very helpful and could save you a lot of cash and maybe heartache.. Full subcription is only £10 a year.. We see a few people who come on after they have lost money :(

    Thanks all ! some useful info :) I'm very web savvy and pretty savvy in general, and wont fall for a scam. I've been looking around for two or three months and know what I'd get for the money, so anything more now stands out a mile.

    I'm keeping an eye on ebay , autotrader. I don't like ebay for buying cars etc, but may be going to look at a couple over the next day or two. In the meantime i'll hang around and see what info and deals I can find on here :)

    Check the number of travel seats with seat belts and the payload. :)

    okay, does that vary then on specific models? There'll only ever be me and my little lad travelling.. he's a small six year old so i'll need to be able to put the high back booster in there, which needs a full seat belt.
