    Welcome! Lots to read on here about the pros and cons of different MHs, layout seems the prime factor in most folks' decision on what to buy. And many say the first one you buy you will find wrong for you and you will end up changing it! We haven't found that but the message is simple, consider many, buy once if you can. :)

    Hello and welcome to the Fun upload_2016-6-5_8-53-55.png

    We have a Bessie, roughly the same size as the E560 but a slightly different layout. Our usage has changed so we'll be down-sizing sometime soon. Good luck with your search - and as said above, do LOTS of research - don't just sit on the benches, but also lie on the bed, sit on the loo, stand in the shower - to check the 'fit' of everything!

    Welcome, enjoy looking for the van to suit you, we had our first van for 5 years, changed as we wanted to take a motorbike with us. Would suggest hiring the van you think will suit even if just for a couple of days, the reality can be a lot different to the dream.

    A start. But the only way is go sit in many many MHs, camera in hand. Simulate everything you would expect to do and the biggest test, pouring with rain, are you comfortable for hours and hours.

    Sure where do you do that , sounds cheap for all your knowledge :)


    Its 2007 with not a lot of miles , it will be getting a habitation report done on it (by the seller), alone with 12 months mot, tax and warranty ( which i still have to see any info on as to what that might cover , but i would suspect little ) , tbh i was more worried about when i go to test drive it that it might suffer from the dreaded juddergate .
    I never knew they were prone to damp issues ,, or did you just mean that as in generally you should check all motorhomes for damp. :)
