    Hi, well after having a sea side chalet for over ten years, I have decided to not renew, and buy a motor home.
    My criteria is..
    No more than six metres in length
    Three birth minimum
    Pull down bed
    And I think thats it..
    Any recommendations!!?
    Thanks in advance

    New? Second-hand? Budget?

    You need to look at lots of vans . lots and lots of vans and decide which layout will work for you.

    Oh, WELCOME!!!!!!

    Oh yeh.... Budget!!!... Good point!!
    Well I want to buy a second hand one in good condition and up to three years old, so suppose my budget would be around 35k.

    Have a good look around there is nothing with a drop down bed (A Class) within your budget/3 yrs old :(:( Either up your budget or lower your age to around 8 yrs old BTW Welcome (y)

    Our Hymer is 3 berth, 6 mtrs, drop down bed and side seat that makes into a wide single bed, it's 2001 but you wouldn't know it, find a good secondhand Hymer and you won't go far wrong!

    Would highly recommend the Hymer B544 but not cheap the 03 plate one we recently traded in at Becks is up for close on £27k only 30k on the clock but you would get a more recent one on your budget.
