    I am Steve other better half is Donna :)
    Am not retired but cant do my normal job anymore .
    Have had motorhomes in the past many moons ago ,i also lived in spain for a number of years late 80s early 90s . My oldest son was born in Gibraltar .
    Am on a quest to find a damp free winterised van budget max about 20k .
    I know a tiny bit about the mechanical side of things but this site has shown me there is much more to it than that. I wouldn't post till id subbed just a principal thing this place has taught me so much.

    Just wanted to say Hello .

    Hello @wigster welcome to Fun, for £20K you have a good budget, I know I am biased but have a look at the Hymer 544 and 584. both winterised handy lay out and not to big a 2000 to 2005 Should be within your budget, try to get one with Solar Panel and awning on reasonable mileage could be a good way to start your search. ( I can see you have been reading checking for damp :)). Don't forget the payload as well. :pink:

    downloadfile-2.gif Happy hunting, looking for a new MH can be exciting but even better when you spend your first night in it.

    I like your principals. (y) Recently noticed some folk join, first post is a technical question then you never see them again. :LOL:

    Plus one for what Irnbru said above and :welcome4: on board. As a long time lurker you will have realised that there is a lot of banter on here as well as loads of good advice. Happy hunting, @Carol makes a good point, just don't buy British vans if you need something winterised........

    Hi wigster

    Welcome,

    Good advice from @Carol you could also look at an older N+B Arto like a Hymer but better(y);)

    In reality there is such a variety of lay outs and option and indeed size, make a list of your must haves and would be nice and then be prepared to compromise on some things.
