    This is a high-quality, RHD, white A Class that has done about 38,000 miles with two owners. First registered June 2008, we bought it in September 2009 when it had done just over 5,000 miles. It's been used frequently but well maintained and well looked after - it's in excellent condition. Full service history is available.

    Built on the Fiat Ducato with an Al-Ko chassis, it has the 3.0 160 bhp engine with the robotised gearbox (which I would never have specified if buying new, but now wouldn't be without). It's 7.15 metres long, 3.3 metres high, including the dome for the automatic satellite dish. Gross weight (or MTPLM if you prefer) is 4,250 kg. 12months MOT.

    It's 4 berth with four belted travel seats (including the cab seats). The main bed is an electric drop-down over the cab, which is extendable to 6' x 6'. We've always used it unextended, when it is a standard double size. The second bed is made up across the lounge area; when done, it's huge but we've used it rarely.

    Features include:
    • alarm and tracker
    • daylight running lights
    • Snooper satnav/radio/CD/iPod player (double DIN)
    • twin rear cameras, one for rear view one for reversing
    • additional USB charging sockets in cab area
    • large lounge area with L shaped seating and sliding adjustable table (can seat 6 to eat at the table, which slides away under the drop down bed if required)
    • LEDs throughout
    • electric grey water dump valve
    • Truma Combi 6E heating and boiler
    • Autogas 2000 refillable twin 11 kg cylinders
    • good kitchen area with ample work surface and storage
    • oven, grill and four gas burners
    • AES fridge/freezer
    • central toilet/shower room with Frankia swinging door and fan-driven roof ventilator
    • pure sine wave inverter powers bathroom sockets
    • rear storage area with shelves and hanging space created by a factory modification from the ED's standard bunk
    • anti-frost greenhouse heater between floors to protect water tanks, etc.
    • external services locker for water and electrical connections
    • external gas barbecue point
    • 4 m Omnistore wind-out awning
    • roof bars and roof ladder
    • full-width garage
    • rear motorcycle rack
    Why are we selling? We've bought another Frankia!

    Detailed enquiries via PM to me, please. but I'll happily respond to questions here. Viewing near Bedford or elsewhere by arrangement. More photos to follow.

    Thanks for looking
    Stephen

    Ah yes, the price - forgot that. We're looking for £42,950 or near offer.

    And more.

    Rear storage behind the shower room and above the garage. This modification replaces the standard bunk that is normally fitted in the ED model. The mod was done by the factory as a customer option when new.

    Storage in kitchen area.

    P1030229.jpg P1030230.jpg

    Kitchen work area. The table extension on the right in the last picture is my own creation to emulate the later Frankia models.

    Quick update, mainly in response to questions:
    The ex-works MIRO is 3,408 kg, giving a payload of around 840 kg.
    The motorcycle rack is easily demountable - about 5 minutes to take it off, a little longer to put in on.
    It has a Tracvision R4 automatic satellite dome, with an Avtex television.

    PRICE DROP to £39,950 (well, everyone else is doing Black Friday weekend;))

    @Cavs it's a great van at a good price and I wish you luck in selling.
    Have you thought about Bundesvan? I've no ideal if they sell on commission or purchase your van but it's an avenue to explore perhaps?

    We bought our lovely Hymer from them when Nick Legg ran it. New people now I think, but they do sell quality European vans like yours. Good luck.

    You could try contacting SMC,http://www.smcmotorhomes.co.uk/ They did say to me when I thought of changing mine that they would be interested in doing brokerage since they are the Frankia importers.
