    Hello.
    Finally getting around to doing what I have wanted to do for a long time.
    Im 50 and want to get a motorhome to travel around France and maybe a bit further.

    I will be spending Easter weekend in Brittany and would appreciate any help in finding a dealer in second hand vehicles. Size will be quite important as we have a ferry to St Malo and size costs!

    We will be looking for something around 4 berth around £20k.
    Thanks
    Peter

    The Condor sailings are quite cheap to St Malo. Was about £240 for us from UK, via Jersey. Ours is 6.5m :Smile:

    Hi and welcome to motorhome fun, the Hymer 544 and 584 come in at a fraction under 6 meters, early 2000/04 should come in Around that price range could be worth a look. :welcomefunster:

    Welcome to FUN the best motorhome forum there is. Have you thought about buying a van in France and keeping it there in a secure compound in the St Malo area that way that way you could save on ferry costs. :thumb:
