    My nickname is Toby Trux, married to Suzy. We've been full timing for 3 years now, based around West Wales when not away travelling, preferably in Southern Europe. In a weeks time we surrender our current and personalised Bessacarr 560 FB and move into a Hymer Starline 640 of 1999 vintage. I believe this has a 2.8 lump, please correct me if I'm wrong. Is this 4 or 5 pot and is it considered to be reliable, thirsty etc? Also, can anyone please tell me what the payload of this vehicle is; it is rhd with manual box and rear kitchen/washroom/facing sofas layout, ie no dinette. We have been motor homing since 1994, though did live in an Austin J4 van for a short while in 1976 - remember that long, hot summer!:coolest: I and my good lady Suzy are glad to be on here! The day we move home into our Starline (Florence the machine) will actually be our fortieth wedding anniversary...... Keep on truckin', Toby. :inlove: :h:

    Hi and welcome Toby, ;)
    Pretty sure your engine is a 5 cylinder, usually reliable but always thirsty. :)
