    Jim said we could chat about Globecar vans here :Smile:

    I'm up for that :thumb:

    Guess I'll kick off then............I've bought a Globescout and can't wait until we get our hands on it (March I hope) :driving2:

    Anyone else got one? and if you have and you don't like it then don't tell me coz I'm not listening:Wink:

    Ah ha, that's why you are not in Portugal in the van.

    Well there other means. We are going to drive the car down in the new year.

    They look well priced, but small. I look forward to hearing your views once you take delivery Chockswahay. Whats the spec like ?

    You say small, to me they look extremely economical.

    It's a no win situation, you want small when moving and HUGE when parked. Only Dr Who has the answer.

    Just reading on another forum about them. The comments seem quite positive. A former owner of a Symbol reckoned he had loads more storage space. Build quality appears good as well. Just spotted a 2010 model for 27k. Not bad.

    Hi Chockswahay

    We picked our up Globecar Campscout on Saturday - chuffed to bits. There are a couple of little niggles that the dealers are going to sort :thumb: but nothing serious.

    Loads of storage, good quality and finish, not to mention a massive bed:Blush:

    Can't wait to get away in it now:Smile::Smile: We'll PM those photos once we get a bit of time - it's been a little manic since Saturday. Thats reminds me we must update our details!

    Good luck with the new van. Please do a review on here, warts'n all. It makes all the difference when your looking at options.

    Enjoy.

    I saw a few in France a couple of months ago, they looked quite distinctive with their round porthole windows. They gave the impression of a very well put together continental Van:thumb:
