    Greetings from deepest Hampshire

    Having been a caravanner for 45 years I thought it about time to change to one with an engine. I am currently waiting to view a secondhand Mirrage 5000 Air (2000 with 47k miles)) due in to the dealers this week. All being well I should be up and running within the next 10 days or so. Any suggestions what to look out for would be welcome including the order of price I should be paying.

    Hi and welcome to motorhome fun I am not familiar with the vehicle you are purchasing but here are a few tips

    lay on the bed and make sure it fits you
    check cooker will it hold what you cook
    check fridge - does it have a freezer compartment does it suit your needs
    check for damp
    I am sure other more experienced members will post some helpful details soon. Jim our ringleader does some very good publications too

    Hi Gilly,

    If you want to see a couple more Mirages, come to Sussex, I have two in stock.

    Welcome from another ex-tugger. Best thing you've done and, as "ourcampersbeentrashed" said have a look at Jim's downloads, some good advice there for handover time. :thumb:
