    I would look at the Hymers at that age very good build quality , the thing you need to check most with any van of that age is that you check it for Damp and the pay load is sufficient, next is layout and size you are comfortable with. Welcome to Fun :welc:

    Hi Dave and Lin and welcome from :france:
    Sorry can't help with your search but plenty of help and advice on here.
    Our van is 2000 and I have to say I prefer the low tech of an older van.Good luck in finding the right van for you.

    We're looking too. Few for sale on here. I have been looking on EBay- lots on there. Friend bought there MH off Gumtree but had to travel down to central belt to get it - about 150 mile journey.
    Good luck in your search

    Welcome..
    Scam warning... Be aware there are many scams around, dont part with any money until you have seen the van..
    ebay, gumtree etc full of scams.

    The rear lounge is more a British style so not found in many foreign built vans.
    With an older motorhome be aware of damp and water ingress issues..
    Good luck.
