    Hi, thanks for the posts, budget is bottom end - 4500 or there about. Ideally we want 4 berth or more, size is not a problem. More modern diesel engines are preferred. Layout - really like the rear fixed bed with garage underneath but willing to consider other things.

    I know it is probably out of our budget but the lower profile roofs would be better. Will consider the "A Class" types (is that the right name? - the ones with fully built bodies and not a vehicle manufacturers cab... Would prefer it to be late 90's or preferably early 00's.

    And - I know it is pushing the boat out but a big bathroom too..

    I am happy to consider the Hymer A class (?) stlye or the Pilote similar style...

    Any thoughts much appreciated.

    Many thanks, T.

    I think for that budget wanting a more modern diesel you will need to look at panel van conversions and quite likely not well known brands either.

    Your choice at that budget is to go older or go smaller.

    We have a 2 berth panel van conversion lovingly done at home 2 owners ago from salvaged caravan parts and although it is ace it is not the sort of thing you describe above. Ours was 2k but we searched high and low to get one that price

    As said above for a Hymer or Pilote you won't find one at that price.... even a vintage or classic.

    You may be able to get a derelict and rebuild if necessary.

    Motorhomes keep their price and the demand always outstrips supply - or so it seems, until you want to sell of course!
