    Hi mary I swapped from a bongo early last year to a 19TD fiat, driven sensably it does much the same milage as the bongo, again same as the Bongo put your foot down and the fuel gauges goes down, I still miss the bongo for its versatialty.

    Hi and welcome to the fun family. In answer to your question it depends how you drive but would guess around 25.

    Hiya and welcome to fun .
    With only having the 2 kids i don't think you'll have much of a problem , bunk wise.
    We've got 3 and we struggled with the layout of most vans as we wanted all 3 to sleep separately , as well as us , and an open plan lounge area. It does make a difference, them all having there own space with a plug socket , window and blind etc.
    It will be the length , i think , that will tie you. We keep ours in storage for that very reason.
    The luton / cab bed in ours is very roomy , king size. If you two are planning on sleeping up there , make sure you both get up and try as many as you can , before you buy .
    Remember who ever is sleeping at the enclosed side , needs to get over the other person if they need a wee in the night :Blush:
    Having windows to 3 sides, like ours , helps the cab feel roomier too . I'm sure you'll be spoilt for choice.
    Happy hunting.
    Bev
