    This might be a stupid question, wont be the last either, if you go on the German eBay how do you translate into English.

    Or are you all clever so and so,s and speak/read German.

    Just wanted a good nose around and struggled to say the least :)

    Pictures are multilingual.
    If there's a sentence or paragraph just copy and paste it into google translate

    Use chrome browser and it will usually offer to translate foreign languages for you

    I appreciate you can look at the pics but you have to type something that resembles what you are looking for.

    I tried a couple of times and only came up with 5 motorhomes, im sure there are more for sale than that :)

    Got a couple in my watch list on eBay cheap biscoff &neisman on there at the mo the owner lives in Egypt !
    Beware they have scams there also .
    As already stated use chrome and that will auto translate and also Google maps to find locations/routes (y)
    Somtimes have a giggle at the translations

    Thanks for the replies

    Im just looking at the mo

    Originally i was thinking of right hand drive only but thought LHD wouldn't be a problem, hence having a look around :)

    As already said, Use Chrome as a browser and it translates with one click

    I use German eBay quite a lot ( and indeed the French one too )

    I always look for LHD before RH.. reason ?

    Before I spent half my life wandering Europe I was always in my comfort zone here in the UK ..
    Sooo
    Using a LHD at home ... no problem..
    Then when abroad I had a good starting advantage of having a LHD vehicle..

    LHD works well for me, too. I find it better than RHD in all honesty as it helps me keep nearer the kerb.

    I use an app called 'Say Hi' which allows me to copy text, write it, or speak it into my phone and it translates into your chosen language or back again. It also has the ability to 'speak' your translation, so handy for conversation.

    It helped me enormously when looking on mobile.de when buying Udo.
